Pinkshirt.ca – Anti-bullying Day

Today is Pink Shirt day.  It made me feel good to take my kids to school to a sea of pink.  To understand the impact of bullying, use Google and search for Amanda Todd.  Also visit http://www.pinkshirtday.ca/ .

Rather than write, this brilliant songs from one of my all time favorite Canadian bands, Billy Talent says it all.

Nothing to Lose
(c) Billy Talent – http://www.billytalent.com/

Need more friends with wings
All the angels I know
Put concrete in my veins
I’d always walk home alone
So I became lifeless Just like my telephone

There’s nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There’s nothing to gain
But the days don’t seem to change

Never played truth or dare
I’d have to check my mirror
To see if I’m still here
My parents had no clue
That I ate all my lunches
Alone in the bathroom

There’s nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There’s nothing to gain
But the days don’t seem to change
There’s nothing to lose
My notebook will explain
There’s nothing to gain
And I can’t fight the pain

Teachers said “It’s just a phase”
When I grow up my children
Will probably do the same
Kids just love to tease
Who’d know it put me underground at seventeen

There’s nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There’s nothing to gain
But the days don’t seem to change
There’s nothing to lose
My notebook will explain
There’s nothing to gain
And I can’t fight the pain
There’s nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There’s nothing to gain
But the days don’t seem to change
There’s nothing to lose
When no one knows your name
There’s nothing to gain
And I just died today
