Black Marriage Day is Sunday, March 27. As we started talking about the day around the YourTango offices, we wondered: why isn't there a Hispanic Marriage Day? A Caucasian Marriage Day? An Asian-Black-Pacific-Islander Marriage Day? Couldn't all races and combinations thereof in this country use a day focused on promoting healthy, happy marriages?

Bullying is thought of as being an ordinary passage of growing up. We all remember being pelted with some sort of hurtful words. Some kids remember being beat up on the play ground.

It is more than words or getting teased up on the playground. It is inescapable harassment, physical assault, verbal abuse, and a constant barrage of cyber attacks that leave kids feeling defeated, fearful, and alone.
