National Pink Day is celebrated on June 23. The holiday was created in 2007 when two students – David Shepherd and Travis Price – saw a fellow student at Central Kings Rural High School being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. To take a stand against bullying, these students encouraged everyone at their school to wear a pink shirt the following day. (Source)
How to write about National Pink Day:
- Do you have any personal experience with being bullied? Write about what happened. Did someone come to your aid?
- Have you ever tried to help someone who was being bullied? What did you do? Did it help?
- In my opinion, we now have a Bully-in-Chief running our country who does not model kindness or tolerance. This week, take a stand on bullying and write about it.
