Refusing to Let Bullies Win

Here is a terrific story of Carleigh O'Connell creatively facing down bullying. She is a 14 year old. Someone attempted to shame her body, humiliating and hurting her publicly. Carleigh decided to go a different direction with this ... and the response has been wonderful (except amongst the comment trolls ... which of course is to be expected and ignored or dealt with creatively as this is another form of clueless bullying).
