strongerHello All!

While away, I received an email from Megan Landry. She is a 15-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter who wrote the song, “Stronger.” In her email she said:

I wrote this because of a personal experience. I did the video myself too. I was not going to let them break me. Reality: if it shows that it bothers you, they’ll just do it more. I hope this will help those that are starting to feel torn down — to rise up! Don’t let anyone make you a victim. They aren’t worth it.

I hope my song will give other kids the power “to look right over their heads.” Because in the end bullying is really about power. Why give anyone that satisfaction over you! I didn’t, and I won’t and I hope more and more kids don’t either.

Thank you for sending me your video Megan! As the beginning of the school year looms ahead, I hope your song helps young people who are being tormented to feel stronger in moments of despair.
