Why a Letter to My Bully?

Every day in America, 160,000 students miss school due to bullying. According to reports by the Secret Service, two-thirds of school shootings are motivated by bullying. A whopping 43% of middle school children avoid the bathroom and locker rooms at all costs due to certainty of being bullied. And finally, the number one reason for suicides among youth ages 11-16 is bullying.

Glover Lane Press’ historical anthology, Letters to My Bully, not only gives victims of bullying an outlet to express the impact of bullying in their lives, contributors speak on solutions to the problem and offer healing advice to survivors. Letters to My Bully is a thought-provoking collection of letters, poetry and essays written by youth, women, men, seniors and celebrities that will change the way this country views survivors forever.

“As a survivor of bullying, I wanted to do a project that would not only help victims heal but would help to educate the masses on how serious this issue is. I define bullying as abuse, mistreatment, torment and harassment by peers, classmates, neighbors, the congregation, siblings, parents, boyfriend, your spouse, etc. This is an issue that America must make a priority as it relates to social justice and peace movements.” Says Glover Lane Press publisher, Azaan Kamau

Co-editor, Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti says, “Letters to My Bully is an excellent tool for ministers, teachers, community leaders, parents, teens and youth to educate those around them about the dangers of bullying. Until everybody, everywhere is addressing this issue in some form, it will continue to plague our great nation.” Says Ifalade

Letters to My Bully includes contributions by Actor, Robert LaSardo and Huffington Post writer, Kergan Edwards-Stout, as well as more than a dozen other best-selling, nationally celebrated writers. There are also pieces written by child survivors and senior citizens.

Letters to My Bully is proud to be supported by national Peace Partners who have committed to ensuring the message of this anthology will reach the masses.

Letters to My Bully edited by Ifalade Ta’Shia Asanti, Azaan Kamau and published by Glover Lane Press will be released by August 15, 2012.

    I am very impressed with this whole idea of "Letter's To My Bully"! I love the way it is put together, and how everyone had a chance to tell their story in whatever fashion they chose to tell it in. With all the bulling that is happening in our schools today, this book will definitely help someone to open up and tell somebody what is being done to them.
    I highly recommend buying this book for yourself, a friend or a loved one. This book will change some lives.
    This book even has a couple of kids in it, that speak on bulling and what they went through, check it out today.
    It is well put together, well thought out, and it surely a MUST BUY!
