A friend of mine recently asked me why all of the awesome people live so far away. After I spent a day thinking about that question I realized there is a very simple answer. There are a lot more awesome people than we know but because we do not show our awesome selves to those around us. We are too busy hiding from potential ridicule that no one knows who we really are.
I believe there are more awesome people in this world than there are bullies and trolls. I think it is time for all of us stand up and be our awesome selves. Stand up and be counted as one of the awesome people.
We need to show those who would keep us down that there are more of us than there are of them. We need to let them know that we will not let them control who we are and what we do with our lives. If you see someone bullying someone else, do something. Find help. Intervene somehow. Don't let them hurt anyone anymore.
We just need to make sure we do not become the people we are trying to stop. Do not become a bully yourself and bully the bullies. Just stand together and tell them it is time to stop. Enough is enough.
