Kindness and…Lady Gaga?06/03/2012
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”!
