As an advocate for the disabilities community in St. Louis, Christina Hune understands the devastating effects of bullying first hand, and how important it is to end this cycle of abuse. When Stand For The Silent partnered with us to collect memoirs, art and poetry for The Bully Diaries, Christina saw an opportunity to share her story. She now uses the book to raise awareness about the horrible impact of bullying. This summer, Christina invited both those who are disabled, and those who are not -together for The Bully Diaries in the Park Book Club event. After speaking, she asked some of them what they learned from the event as she autographed copies of the book for them. Here’s a snippet of some of the footage we captured:
