Octagon Update and a Pat on the Back for MTV

August 27, 2010

Laura’s Blog Entry

Teeny tiny hexagons, how I love thee. All almost three rows of you.

On a completely unrelated note, have you seen the MTV show, “If You Really Knew Me”? Holy smoke I just watched an episode. Seriously intense, good stuff. It’s a show where facilitators go into high schools and create an experience where kids learn about their similarities. It breaks down barriers and combats bullying.

I was very moved by it. Bullying is rampant in schools and needs to end NOW. Merely punishing the offenders is ineffective. They need to be reached and taught. This program seems like a good way of doing just that. MTV, I applaud you. How you can create some of the best shows I’ve seen and some of the worst is one of the great ironies of our age.
