Happy Pink Shirt Day!
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.
