SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

this and that

Do you know Ashley Fink? She plays Lauren on Glee. And, how much do I love that though she isn't a traditional television beauty, Lauren is every bit as sexy as the typical thin girls with big boobs, big hair and big teeth? A lot, FYI. It's just icing on the cake that she has bad boy Puck lusting after her too.

Anyway, Ashley (the actress, not the character) did a short Q&A thing in People, and one of the things that really stood out to be was her comment about being bullied. It's something I've been thinking a lot about lately. "Bullying" is our current buzz word of concern. Schools talk about bullying, LJ talks about bullying -- and that's good and relevant and very important.

But please never forget that ALL kids are bullied in some way. Every one. I was, and I wager you were too. And I know that the reason I pulled through it was because I had a strong support system of adults. It's important to be there for kids -- all kids -- and for them to have strong, positive role models.

Just some ramble-ey pre-work thoughts from me to you.
