Body Image is a real issue

In this blog I have spoken and wrote about many many issues. From animal abuse to saving our environment.

On my facebook page, I have liked and commented on 1000’s of different issues that need attention from Juvenile Diabetes to saving the Polar Bears and whales.

This issue affects us all…Body image!

How can you help with this…..there are so many ways.

Write letters.

Mentor girls and boys who have body image problems.

Go to your boys and girls club or your local girls inc and begin talking about body image issues. They are so pervasive they create problem after problem.

This video shows how much body image is a focus in advertisement and everywhere else.

Think about how many of our young people have eating disorders because they truly believe they would look better if they were a different size. Who teaches them this…US, the media, tv, magazines, etc.

We need to stop causing our people to hate their own selves and their own bodies.

We must adopt the idea that everyone is beautiful!  Everyone!
