Tonight's special guest is Monica Harmon from Los Angeles, one of Bill's long-time friends and fellow community-policing advocate. Monica has recently been devoting her seemingly unending energy to an Anti-Bullying campaign. Partnering with the Los Angeles Police Department, the LA Unified School District, local politicians and other community members, Monica has been making presentations at local public schools, parks and town-hall style meetings. She uses inter-active techniques to carry the message to kids that bullying in person and in cyber space is unacceptable behavior, and giving them tools and techniques to combat the problem. In recent years, bullying has been brought to the forefront of society due to the fact that media outlets have highlighted various tragic deaths as a result of bullying. There is a global fight against bullying, not to take it, not to promote it, not to engage in it. At the end of Harmon’s presentation, she has all the students stand up and make a pledge, “I am a strong student. I'm a leader. I will treat others with respect. I refuse to bully others and I promise to tell an adult when I see bullying. I refuse to watch, I refuse to laugh, I refuse to join in. I will be a good role model, I will not make others feel bad. I'm a do-something person, not a do-nothing person. I will help change my school. Sticking up for someone is the right thing to do. I will not post negative comments on the computer. I will stand up and speak out against bullying, and I will make a difference in my school”
