This month, we’re going to link up with #1000Speak for Compassion. I think we’ve done this once before. #1000Speak is a group of bloggers, vloggers, and folks in general who want to spread a little positivity and light throughout the interwebs. Everything is so negative and I certain fall into that category at times.
So far this year, here’s the posts that have been written for the prompts. I’ll be gathering more as we move on in the year, so by the end of the year we’ll have an interesting digest of where we’ve been. This is totally separate from the magazine and anthology. It’s just an extra thing for fun.
Alright, moving along…
On Friday, 1000 Voices for Compassion will be doing another roundup of posts on these internets. I thought it would be wonderful, if we’d write poetry about the main topic–which is “Building from Bullying.” But instead of just writing about a horribly hurtful bullying episode, let’s find compassion in the story-whether for the victim, the bully or both. Let the poem tell us more than we would expect. This does not have to be an instance of childhood bullying. It unfortunately happens at all ages.
Make sure to either backlink to the page or post it in the comments. Check out what each is doing and share! Let’s build this community. All links will be added to this year’s digest.
Remember on Fridays, we’re having a bit of a chat. If you didn’t catch last Friday’s swing by and join in about education and poetry.
