Watch Worthy Today & Tomorrow
3 February 2019 | by mylesmcmillanSee all my reviews

If you are a parent of a child in today's society over the age of 40 this segment is like a "today" version of the after school specials that we watched regarding subjects they were afraid to discuss when we were in school but better.

If you're a young parent you may feel relieved that "someone" is bold enough to tell the truth, and you already know how real this is and how it exists in school whether you were bullied or a bully. If you're a school administrator or teacher it may remind you that you are a part of the problem and/or solution. If you're presently being bullied; hopefully, this will give you the strength to talk to someone. If you're a bully cognizant of your actions hopefully this will show you the view of what your actions look like from the other side. In any event of what brings you to decide to watch this, I do believe this short film will inspire you to be active, aware, relative, honest, accountable, and supportive in whichever direction you walk. After you watch it, you'll see why I didn't give it a ten; but, I don't want this rating to be a spoiler so just watch for yourself and see how you relate to "THE" girl like her.
