Telling the Truth About Bodies



May 8, 2013

R-E-S-P-E-C-T… Begins with Self
In response to the U.S. News on nbcnews.com article on an Air Force officer…

Is it hatred?  Is it anger management?  Is it lack of respect?  I am not sure.  The officer in charge of addressing harassment for the Air Force is arrested for assault in Virginia. See the full article. I was sent the link just after I listened to an amazing TED talk by Jackson Katz who has been in the education and training profession targeting violence prevention. See his TED talk as well and see where we start in shifting the focus on the person assaulted TO the perpetrator and their belief system.

Check out these two links:
