Bike Ride Anyone . . .

On a happy note,
My first Pic Monkey Collage
(talk about easy peasy)

On a serious note . . .
The boy you punched in the hall today,
committed suicide a few minutes ago.
That girl you called a slut in class today,
she is a virgin.
The boy you called lame,
he has to work every night to support his family.
That girl you pushed down the other day,
is already being abused at home.
That girl you called fat,
she is starving herself.
The old man you made fun of because of his ugly scars,
he fought for our country.
The boy you made fun of,
his mother is dying.
You think you know them
Guess what?
You don't.
name calling
be someone
who does not bully

I saw this on Facebook
(I changed the presentation, not the message.)

ending on a lighter note
she makes us smile each day
 she does a jig to go for a bike ride

now I am going to wash windows
a bike ride

Lynne she is adorable!

Love your collage too
well done.

Was very impressed that you had met the Kennedy's
weren't they a beautiful couple.

Was Jackie as gorgeous in real life?
She was the ultimate in glamour
and style.

Happy weekend.

I have seen that going around on FB. I like those words. Every school should post this as a creed!
Hope you have a lovely day and are feeling better!

Great message today too!!

Pamela Gordon said...

I must check out Picmonkey. Do you take Snickers for bike rides? He looks so cute. Have fun!

Pondside said...

I'll be Rory would like to go for a bike ride too. I don't think he'd be as good as Snickers, though.

What a little doll! It never occured to me that I could take Mele on my bike. What a cute little doggie seat.
Thank you so much for the kind comment on my post.
Your "bullying thing" was wonderful.
I seldom go on facebook but what a great thing to find there.

For some reason I have a difficult time trying to follow the directions on Pic Monkey and other sites like it. I think it's because I don't understand some of the terminology. But..I'll try again. GREAT Post!

As a newcomer to your site I’ve experienced two wonderful trips as a passenger on your drives. I will never tire of your beautiful gardens and your army of family that keeps them up when you are not able to. You have accomplished so much. Happy bike riding and don’t forget your camera.

Hi Lynne! What a sweetie Snickers is and that's wonderful that she loves her bike cute. Boy those words really hit home...I hope this goes around like wildfire on Facebook and all the other social medias out there. Some people just don't think or are heartless but maybe this will make them think twice before opening their mouths. If not then maybe their friends will read this and show their disapproval. You just never know. Thanks for posting this! Have a good one. Maura :)

Snickers is so cute and love she "enables" you to go on bike rides. I just bought a bike and, yesterday, took my first ride in decades. Those little hills sure don't look so HUGE from the car!
As to the serious note...someone sent that to me a while back and it struck home. walk a mile in someone else's shoes, eh?
Unfortunately, bullies in high school are, probably, going to be bullies in life. I run into them all the time.

Snickers is just precious, Lynn! How fun to get out and bike ride, have not done that in years! Enjoy! What you said to begin with should be written and read every second!
