Bullying Prevention and Awareness - BLUE SHIRT DAY

As school opened many will not forget last year's headlines about Broward County students Michael Brewer and Josie Ratley.

Michael Brewer, 15 year-old that was nearly burned to death last October 2009, has spent almost a year in recovery.  The long road back has been a struggle however with the support and prayers from the community and the country, Michael and his family are survivors.

This week Michael Brewer started a new school in a new area.  He is continuing his progress and looking forward to a good school year.  Part of his determination is being a voice for the many victims of bullying.  Creating an awareness and being the survivor he is.

Bullying is a growing and expanding problem among kids today.  As school opens throughout the country in these next few weeks, take the time to learn more about bullying prevention and bullying awareness.
