Tomorrow, June 10, 2018, 2 p.m. I’ll be speaking at Montville High School’s Amphitheater on the topic of ANTI-BULLYING for the Coalition for the Human Condition. I am officially a spokesperson and even off duty, I am on duty.
Yesterday, it broke my heart when I was shopping in a health food store that is located in a strip mall. The owner told me that 70 percent of his customers were livid that a dollar store is coming to the strip mall and that would bring (his words) “undesirables.”
I stood up to him and told him that people who look down on others and judge people are the REAL UNDESIRABLES! The only way we’re going to get anywhere on this planet is by LOVE and LOVE only!
One thing LOVE isn’t is turning your nose up on other people. It doesn’t make you look better, it makes you look worse. Everyone thinks it’s so cool to bash The Bible, but whether you believe or not, there are good stories — especially the ones about Jesus breaking bread with EVERYONE. The word “undesirable” should be in NO ONE’s vocabulary! JUDGING IS BULLYING!
