Hearing the news stories about Michael Morones and Grayson Bruce made me worry that maybe John wasn't telling me about any problems he may have had over any of the My Little Pony lunches that he has taken to school. I talked to him about Grayson and the troubles he has been having. Luckily, John hasn't had any issues and, as a mom, I'm very thankful with how disgusted he was on Grayson's behalf.
"We could send him a lunch, Mom! He can put it in a normal bag and he won't be breaking the rules!"
While I would love to do, so the shipping might be a little awkward. John then asked if he could just take a lunch to school for Grayson and Michael (whom he was told had also been teased and is currently in the hospital -- but not the whole story as to why). When talking about it with my fellow Bento Bloggers & Friends we decided that an anti-bullying hop would be a perfect way for us to show our support -- not only to the Bronies of the world, but to the girls who don't feel like they'll ever fit in because they aren't "girlie" enough, and to anyone else who has ever been bullied for any reason at all.
Make lunch - not war (unless you're playing D&D. Then you can go ahead and make war ... but only in accordance to the rules of the game and the roll of the dice ... and if you don't get bent out of shape if a ten year old girl happens to roll better than you)!
After you see John's lunch, make sure you click on the button at the end to continue the hop. Keep clicking after that.
