Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

If Only

If only a girl could look in the mirror and know she is pretty no matter what.


If only a boy could go to school without being called gay.


If only a girl could go home and not worry about gossip being spread about her on social media.

 

If only a boy knew there would be food for him in the morning.


What if there was a way to stop the hate, stop the lies?


What if there was a way to go through the day, living a normal life?


What if there was a way to end the rumors, end the online gossip?


What if there was food for everyone in the morning?


Stop the hate, stop the lies.


Stop the unnecessary remarks.


Stop not caring for one another.


Stop!
