October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month – New Maryland Law!

October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. New law goes into effect in Maryland.

A cyberbullying law, also known as “Grace’s Law,” makes it a criminal offense to use an interactive computer service, like Twitter or Facebook, to cause “serious emotional distress on a minor” or causes the minor to fear for his or her life or physical safety.

Those found guilty of the misdemeanor offense face up to a year in prison in addition to a possible $500 fine.

The law is named after Grace McComas, a 15-year-old from Woodbine, Md., who committed suicide in 2012 after being bullied on Twitter.

“The War Against Ourselves” – Joel Faviere (Self Harm Awareness 2013)

Joel Faviere has recorded a new song for Self Harm Awareness Day. Please watch and share.



The War Against Ourselves

Another day alone
Another night
Another knife
I guess I’m on my own
The lights are on
My eyes are closed
And no one understands
The Dark I’m dealing with
And all the people in my life
Are way too blind to see the vice

All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
The war against ourselves
All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
I’m livin in a hell
its what is real.

Real, oh I don’t wanna go anymore.

I know that you’re confused
I’ve been there once
I’ve been there twice
The third I didn’t choose
I guess I’m born to lose
The ones that break you down
They look so cool,
Its why I always break the fucking rules
My Synchronized wounds

All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
The war against ourselves
All these scars
All these scars
From the war against ourselves
I’m livin in a hell
its what is real.

They break me down
I can’t block the sound
So I turn to the one thing
I know will not let me down
People don’t think to ask whats wrong
I stop and go to the beat
of the broken flow in blood

All these scars
All these scars
From the war against myself
I’m a walking hell
I won’t starve myself of the dark
Listen to me scream and shout
but do not say a word.
