Happy New Year!

As life goes on, I know I would be no where if not for the numerous supporters, fellow advocates, and activists I have come to know. I can never thank you enough for everything you have done for me and my family. For our daughter Rehtaeh.

2014 was a busy year and thankfully it ended with Rehtaeh’s name no longer being hidden by a publication ban. Fighting that ban would have been a hard way to start 2015. I’m glad Nova Scotia Justice Minister Lena Metlege Diab did the right thing and issued a ministerial directive.

Our friends from Anonymous – Mercy, John, Ivan, Tina, Rob, Trina, *****, Sonya, Anthony, Christine, ******, ***, David, Vicky, Andrew, *** *****, Mel, Angela, Phil, Judy, Jason, Amy, Sam, …. I could literally fill the page. You are some of the best people I know. Thank you for being there for us.

[su_quote cite=”Elie Wiesel”]There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.[/su_quote]

A special thanks to Ryan Van Horne who really took a chance by breaking the publication ban and forced the hands of those who would have preferred to wash them.

[su_quote cite=”Henry David Thoreau”]Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once?[/su_quote]

To everyone who stood up, showed up, spoke up, and refused to remain silent in the face of injustice anywhere – you have done more for victims than you could possibly know. Keep your faith in humanity, you are why many of us still have it at all.

The New Year will bring some positive change.

To you all – HAPPY NEW YEAR. I wish you the best in 2015.

    2015 is a year when I will find courage to stand up for more victims of bullycide. The statistics are heartbreaking. The victims deserve protection – not death. The families deserve protection, not ostracism. Let’s make 2015 the first step of many where victims of bullycide are treated with dignity especially when people base their reactions on the lies from the media an not from the truth coming from those who knew the victims best. Rest in Peace Rehtaeh. May your family always find peace We will never forget you and we will never let you be forgotten.
