Melania Trump Picks her Cause as First Lady: Cyberbullying

From ARS Technica;

“As US Election Day closes in, the wife of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump made a rare campaign speech in Pennsylvania. At the speech’s end, Melania Trump told the crowd what will be her cause should she win the privilege to be First Lady: cyberbullying.”

“Technology has changed our universe,” said Melania Trump on Thursday. “But like anything that is powerful, it can have a bad side. Children and teenagers can be fragile. They are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their life hard and can force them to hide and retreat… It is never OK when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied, or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground. And it is absolutely unacceptable when it is done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.”

She ended by promising to make cyberbullying one of her “main focuses” in the White House.”

Hopefully Ms. Trump will follow through and help to curtail this new form of abuse so frequently practiced today.
