There was a peaceful protest this morning at the Dayton Charter School where 10 year old Jetta Fosberg attends against bullying. As you may recall in my previous post, Jetta decided, on her own, to cut off 14 inches of hair and donate it to Wigs for Kids. An organization which creates wigs for children who have lost their hair from cancer treatments or other ailments. Since Jetta has done this, she has been bullied for weeks at school and the school is not acting appropriately to address the problem. Jetta's mom, Heidi, decided to reach out to social media and the outpouring has been amazing!

Now, since the Dayton news groups are involved, the school has decided to have an investigation. Well, isn't that something. All of the sudden the school is now concerned? (Please note sarcasm) I especially love the principal's comment that he "didn't know of any child that had ever died from words". Hmm... What about suicides? What about school shootings? He must not keep up with current events? Hopefully he is getting an earful now from his bosses! Hopefully!!
We will always #standwithjetta and we will always fight against bullying!
