SPECIAL NOTE: There is much speculation to the validity of The Sandy Hook CenTer- so much that I have been slandered/ liabeld in the press.
We don't know what made Brooke lie. All we know is that she did.
As with anything worth while,, things take time and commitment. Maybe Brooke questioned our authenticity. I honestly don't see how- we have clearly been defined online for years. Google John Rinaldi. You can see all there is to know and then some.
Or maybe she saw myself being bullied, and believed it. Michael Levine of Morristown, NJ stole tens of thousands of dollars from me, and after I filed a police report and tried to have them returned, out of revenge he wrote malicious lies about myself and my non-profit. All because he was in love with me and I did not want to be involved with a dude. He bought me a Porsche Cayenne and I refused it because it was inappropriate.. Again, I don't see how anyone could believe these reviews- after all they were clarified within the actual site.
Our being bullied remained online because we believe we were providing a valuable service. (and we didn't believe people were actually 'that' stupid to believe them. We wanted to be an example to show that even us adults are vulnerable to bullying. We believe that we as adults can handle being bullied/harassed because we've learned life skills that 'should' have made us resilient. Our kids however have not lived enough to learn adversity nor the understanding. Our children believe the bullying situation will define them forever and that the situation is hopeless. As a result, suicide among children are at pandemic proportions.
********************Bullying and SuicideThere is a strong link between bullying and suicide, as suggested by recent bullying-related suicides in the US and other countries. Parents, teachers, and students learn the dangers of bullying and help students who may be at risk of committing suicide.
In recent years, a series of bullying-related suicides in the US and across the globe have drawn attention to the connection between bullying and suicide. Though too many adults still see bullying as “just part of being a kid,” it is a serious problem that leads to many negative effects for victims, including suicide. Many people may not realize that there is also a link between being a bully and committing suicide.
The statistics on bullying and suicide are alarming:
Some schools or regions have more serious problems with bullying and suicide related to bullying. This may be due to an excessive problem with bullying at the school. It could also be related to the tendency of students who are exposed to suicide to consider suicide themselves.
Some of the warning signs of suicide can include:
In some cases, it may not be obvious that a teen is thinking about suicide, such as when the suicide seems to be triggered by a particularly bad episode of bullying. In several cases where bullying victims killed themselves, bullies had told the teen that he or she should kill him or herself or that the world would be better without them. Others who hear these types of statements should be quick to stop them and explain to the victim that the bully is wrong.
Other ways to help people who may be considering suicide include:
Friends and relatives of suicide victims also need to find someone to talk to as they grieve, especially if they are suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts themselves.
The SandyHook CenTer will honor the 26 lives taken on 12/14/12, and will support the immediate families and friends of the victims. The SandyHook CenTer will also honor the love felt from around the world as the entire globe blanketed Newtown with love, kindness, and concern.
Please stay tuned and watch us defy logic and do something that will serve as an example to all.
Thank You The Daily News for having journalistic integrity. YOU TOLD THE TRUTH- not just our truth. THE truth.
EXCLUSIVE: Brooke Shields' accused stalker says she's lying http://nydn.us/1ibznpu
We understand how someone who had been a victim would be hyper-sensitive (a word her husband Chris Henchey referred to me of Brooke) and thus overly proactive- especially when there are children involved. However, fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) should not be ever tolerated and is no reason to BULLY. Nor should whom once was considered the 'Face of the 80's' and once often thought of as one of the most beautiful women of the world, be reduced to being a liar.
She lied. We don't know why. Much like we don't know:
