Anti-Bullying

The Unwritten Letters Project is beginning to push our campaign against bullying, as well as support suicide prevention efforts across the world.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. See what Pacer’s Teens Against Bullying is doing and get involved in your community! October 10th is UNITY DAY where you should wear ORANGE to support the END of bullying in your school/community.

National Bullying Prevention Month – Bullying is everyone’s issue, and when we’re united, the cause is strong. What will you do to help? http://www.pacer.org/bullying/get-involved.asp

Alex Boles just spoke at an Anti-Bullying event in St. Louis, MO at the Mills Mall. She will be speaking with Illinois high schools and middle schools soon about bullying prevention efforts and writing workshops. For more information, contact us at unwrittenlettersproject@gmail.com

 

Look for My Story on the right. Below are references and spotlights on what’s happening in the anti-bullying and suicide prevention fronts.

    Truly this letter captures accurately the emotions and the sense of family that permeates those fortunate few who have come to know one another on Twitter. I say “few” because Twitter is a huge megaplex with as many people, world views & politics as one can imagine. Within Twitter’s world community are those who’ve read the signs of the times and as the above letter states, have found solace, friendship and courage to confront the nihilists who would take the world down in flames. Every generation or two seems to be faced with it’s own crisis. This present one is our own. Like-kindred spirits find their way to one another and the very essence of what it is to be loved and to love in turn, unselfishly and at times at great price, becomes the mark of what it means to be family; to be friends and to be lovers of that Eternal Good, Who is after all, the Author of that love.

    This is beautiful. It is true for me also, though I could never have put it so beautifully.

    Don’t translate the letter. Let it be for the world to see it in it’s truest form. If the person it was written to see’s your website, they will know and it will mean more because they will be one of very few that can read and feel the emotions of the letter. Alot could be lost in the translation as it sometimes is even with our native language. Leave it be, let it live as is.

    Alex,
    Wow! You are really cool and smart and pretty and nice and a good listener and everyone seems to like you and admire you and I think you are alot like your mother. She really did a great job raising you and must be an amazing woman. I’m just sayin……..

    I just stumbled upon this website yesterday and I couldn’t believe it. Its amazing. I read a letter yesterday that I felt such a large connection with. It was crazy. I never thought how we are all connected on such deeper levels. I love this project. I may even sumbit some letters of my own. Thank you so much.

    This project is so wonderful. Its inspired me to write letters on my own. Things that i want to say but never can. Thank you so much for beginning this project.
    I also was wondering, would it be possible to get a copy of the letters one submits. I’ve submitted a few, but someday i might grow the courage to actually sned them to the people they’re meant for.
