Brian McKeever and the Vancouver 2010 Olympics

At the eleventh hour Brian McKeever found out he would not be representing Canada on Feb 28 in the 50 meter cross country. I can only imagine his disappointment.
Many people have  experienced another kind of disappointment when they learned a good friend had turned against them, or a group of peers had started a smear campaign against them.  McKeever hasn’t been bullied, but he must be dealing with emotional turmoil.
Just remember – stay strong, hang in, and STAND UP with confidence!

So far, Canada has not won a medal in Olympic cross-country, but tomorrow will give us another chance! Go Canada!

Joannie Rochette Shows Incredible Strength

Joannie Rochette displayed amazing focus as she courageously moved forward determined to win a medal in spite of her mother’s recent fatal heart attack after arriving in Vancouver.
She continued on to earn a bronze medal and attributed her success to her mother, Therese, who wanted a better life for her daughter than she herself had.
When dealing with bullied children, we can learn from the strength and focus shown by Joannie Rochette.

Bullying Prevention and Inspiration for Olympic Athletes

 “The steeper the mountain the harder the climb the better the view from the finish line.”

 I find this quote inspirational as we at ‘Stand Up Now’ work on the challenge to increase respect and reduce bullying in our society. I think this quote must also be inspirational to athletes as they prepare for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver to take place February 12 to 28, 2010. Go athletes, go!
