Yeah! It's about time we added some star power to the national campaign to end bullying. Headline News reported today that Penelope Cruz is being criticized for making a harsh statement by saying that gossip and rumors have a lasting and devastating affect on future generations.
You bet your sweet petunia it affects future generations! Every mom who has had to pick up the pieces of their once happy, vivacious child knows that the targets don't come out of it unscathed. Funny, bullying can take a matter of seconds, but the victims carry the scars of the bullying in their psyche for a lifetime. Let's not forget that 1 out of 4 children are bullied every single day at school!
