children’s author and teller of stories
What a wonderful idea! Artists and writers have joined the wave of folks speaking directly to kids who are having a tough time, or who are being bullied, to let them know that “it gets better.” What a great way to encourage kids who are suffering. Many of us have “been there” and “done that.” Many writers, too, were bullied or depressed as kids. But we persevered to come through to the other side—to life as happy and productive adults. This is something teens need to hear.
