Like too many kids, Maisie Kate Miller has plenty of experience being bullied. But this sophomore at Marblehead High School near Boston has turned it into a positive, rallying others to be kinder, both in her own school and around the world. And the symbol of her movement has been a most unlikely one: pigtails.
Why pigtails? the straw that broke Miller's back was being made fun of for wearing her hair to school in that girlish style. On the day it happened, the teen went home and posted a touching letter to friends and schoolmates on Facebook. She requested that everyone wear pigtails the next day to stand up to bullying.
Word spread quickly, and not only did hundreds of friends, fellow students, and adults wear pigtails to school the next day, but doing so has turned into an anti-bullying campaign. Check out Miller's anti-bullying Facebook page, Pigtails4Peace.
