Indelicato & Ditto: Beat Bullying

In the midst of the Michael Jackson omni-media blitz, a couple videos by child actor Marc Indelicato and musician Beth Ditto that encourage kids to stop bullying. Also speaks directly to those bullied: fat kids, gay kids, freaks and outsiders. A sweet group of videos with a simple, clear purpose: you may be different, but you are not alone. Michael would have liked the message.

It seems silly to point out, but the Internet makes you realize that the resources available to schoolkids are boundless (in contrast to when I was growing up and the few boxy Apple computers in the Abraham Lincoln High School journalism classroom impressed us to no end).

What a great way to connect kids who may feel isolated in their own schools or communities with others.
