You know how I hate bullies. You know how I believe gay kids should learn martial arts or how to fight...so they can beat the bullies at their game.
Or beat the shit out of them like I did.
But of course there are much much better ways to teach these bullies a lesson.
Like these two kids in Nova Scotia did.
Meet David and Travis ...the heroes of Central Kings Rural High School.
When one of their fellow students was bullied for wearing a pink shirt...and called a fag...they turned the whole school into a sea of pink.
Two Nova Scotia students are being praised across North America for the unique way they turned the tide against a fellow student bullied for wearing pink.
When the bullied student, who has never been identified, walked into school to see his fellow students decked out in pink, some of his classmates said it was a powerful moment.
I bet it was.
Now the story is all over the big gay blogs in the United States...and people are writing in to say "What do you expect ? They are Canadians"
Which makes me really proud to be one too.
I still think that gay kids should learn to defend themselves. But if you can get a whole school to stand up to the bullies that's even BETTER.
I could go on and on about how great I think the kids at Central Kings Rural High School are.
But why not say it with a song?
Hey anyone can be a hero....as Sébastien likes to say.
Just be brave and cool enough to do the right and decent thing.
Like the kids at Central Kings....
