COVID-19 Community Update from Beacon Hill Villa, February 27-2021

 

Dear Dedicated Friends and Family of Beacon Hill Villa,

 

Weekly fun themed activities have continued this week for the residents as usual. However, as you may or may not be aware, this week we celebrated Pink Shirt Day. Pink Shirt Day, or Anti-Bullying Day, is a day where everyone is encouraged to wear a pink shirt to symbolize a stand against bullying. Bullying is a form of aggression where there is a power imbalance. In additional to any physical trauma incurred, bullying can result in serious emotional problems, including anxiety, low self-esteem, or depression.

Here’s a little history lesson for everyone that wishes to learn more about Pink Shirt Day:

Bullying is an incredibly serious issue and can occur within Schools, at home, and in the workplace. The Pink Shirt Day Initiative aims to support students, educators, employees and employers, and the community in recognizing, educating, and putting a stop to bullying, discrimination, racism, homophobia, and transphobia.

And if you don’t have a pink shirt, wear another article of pink clothing, such as a pink bracelet or socks!

Stay strong everyone.
