Jennifer Livingston, a Wisconsin news anchor, went on air this week in response to a viewer email calling her obese and exhorting her to “reconsider [her] responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle” and remarking that “surely [she doesn’t] consider [her]self a suitable example for this community’s young people, girls in particular”.
Jennifer’s response is thoughtful, considered and incredibly inspiring. Join her and millions of others this October in raising awareness for Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.
Bullying is becoming a real problem in our schools, workplaces and on the Web. We here at P&P (despite being anonymous) strive to never post something we wouldn’t say in person while looking the subject in the eye.
Rock on, Jennifer. Rock on. (And also, thank you for not being a twig.)
