Kindness and…Lady Gaga?

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read the article from the New York Times, “Born to not get bullied“.  Gaga has set up a foundation that will be a “bottom-up movement to try to make it cooler for young people to be nice”.  She says it is not an anti-bullying campaign – it is a youth empowerment movement.  Gaga says in the article that she was bullied as a girl, in her teenage years and wants to let kids know they have a voice, and they can change the world by choosing kindness.I have to say, I am impressed. Not my type of musical genre at all, but I do have to admit that Lady Gaga is talented. And now I am happy to see that she has a soft side as well.  Good for her!  I hope that people sit up and take notice of the good she is trying to accomplish.  Would that more would look at bottom-up rather than top-down movements to change the world!  No matter your feelings personally, I would encourage you to read the article – and think of ways we can all be encouraging kids that it’s “cool to be kind”!

  1. This is nice thing to know about Lady Gaga. It is good that she is using her celebrity status to promote a very good cause. Bullying is a serious issue which can have very disturbing consequences.
