This week all across Canada people will be wearing pink shirts as an emblem to raise awareness about bullying – and to take a stand against it.
Using a Good Mind is a part of our Haudenosaune culture. Last fall we shared the message with all our friends that part of using a Good Mind means standing up to bullies when you see them in action.
We would like to encourage all Six Nations businesses, families and friends to participate in anti-bullying activities and awareness.
Reach out to one another and encourage other First Nations people to work together to end lateral violence in our communities.
Stand up when you are being bullied. Stand up when someone else is being bullied and we just might turn the tide so we can all overcome the reign of the bully together.
Good minds stand up for those around them.
Good minds stand up and tell bullies to stop.
Good minds stand up when no one else will.
Good minds stand up and refuse to react to anger with anger.
Good minds stand up for those who can’t.
Good minds stand up even when they are scared.
Good minds stand up and band together.
Good minds stand up and are stronger together.
Good minds stand up and speak the truth in love.
Good minds stand up for what is right.
Good minds stand up to end bullying.
