On This Day: National Stop Bullying Day

http://www.stopbullyingnow.hrsa.gov/kids/The nonprofit group Hey UGLY designated the 2nd Wednesday of February as National Stop Bullying Day.  Hey UGLY stands for Uniquely Gifted Lovable You.  The aim of the group is to encourage schools to incorporate more Stop Bullying activities.  Over 850,000 teenagers stay home from school at least 1 day per month out of fear of bullying.  Several national news headlines brought attention to the Stop Bullying campaign.  Many prominent celebrities have spoken out on the matter, including Taylor Swift, Mark Wahlberg, and Jay-Z.
