What if the kid you bullied at school, grew up, and turned out to be the only surgeon who could save your life? Lynette Mather

Today, Pink Shirt Day is a bullying awareness day celebrated in Canada. The pink shirt symbolises society’s zero-tolerance to bullying anywhere (schools, workplaces, homes, over the Internet etc).

The idea originated from two Nova Scotia high school students – David Shepherd and Travis Price. They chose to wear pink shirts, and offered 50 pink shirts to other students, after witnessing a ninth grade student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
