I’d like to share the following poem “Mean Miss Bully” with you. This poem was written by my grandmother and is included in her book A Little of Me: A Little of You: Spoken Word Choir by Janice K. Neal-Vincent, Ph.D. (Author)
“Mean Miss Bully”
Miss Bully sits in her chair looking mad.
She really tried her best to make Jim sad.
So many times she called Jim out of his name
And tried a number of times to make him shame.
She said that Jim was just stupid and crazy.
She even got beside herself and called him lazy.
Let her tell it, Jim could never do anything right.
Her harsh bullying made him sleepless every night.
But when her parents heard her call Jim names,
They made her apologize and put her to shame.
It’s never cool, precious friends, to put others down.
Whatever goes around will always come back around.
If you’re in Atlanta I hope to see you at the KINDNESS RULES ANTI-BULLYING FASHION SHOW! Join us this Sat, June 17 for the launch of Kindness Rules, an anti-bullying platform founded by model Miss Jamison Scout. RSVP at kindnessrules.eventbrite.com
On Saturday, June 17th I get to participate in an event that is so important right now. It’s the Kindness Rules Anti-Bullying Fashion Show to raise awareness about the effects of bullying. The event is the creation of my friend Miss Jamison Scout in conjunction with Pearl Model Agency.
Thinking about Saturday’s event reminded me of a video that fellow actor Peyton Evans created about Bullying. Peyton and the actors in the video attend my acting school, The Actor’s Scene.
Let’s all work together to end bullying! The Kindness Rules Anti-Bullying Fashion Show will take place Saturday June 17th from 5-7pmk at Gallery 992, 992 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, Atlanta GA. For tickets and RSVP visit KindnessRules.eventbrite.com
The time is so perfect for this show! Tara Ochs, who played the role of Viola Liuzzo, has created an opportunity for an open and honest look at what’s usually not talked about openly. Get in on the conversation about privilege, race and social justice by being in the audience on March 30th at 8pm. How easy is that? Bring a friend or neighbor who you’ve wanted to have the conversation with but didn’t know how! I’ll be participating in the Talk Back after the show that night. Get your tickets at www.7stages.org
