"Materialism and the Art of Giving kept me thinking long after I turned the last page. Hearing a story like Yvette and Darlene's is a real pleasure." -- Scott S. Phillips, author of Squirrel Eyes
A Painful Recollection by Yvette Gagnon is a short story included in the book Fearless Poets Against Bullying. Fearless Poets Against Bullying is the first book in the Fearless Poets Series compiled by poet and activist, Ashley Love.
Fearless Poets from around the world grace the pages with their stories and poems on bullying and surrounding issues. They are using their voices to speak up for those who often go unheard. This book will also bridge the gap between bullying in childhood and the lasting effects that carry on into adulthood.
Bullying is not just a "kids" issue. it is happening in schools, communities, workplaces, and homes. It often gets overlooked as it is said that "sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Well, in Fearless Poets Against Bullying, you will learn otherwise. Words can stab like knives and have fatal outcomes just like other forms of abuse.
"Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."
