Spots, Dots, and the Nots ?!
Saturday, March 31, 1:00 pm, Main Floor
Conversations about bullying are as evident in the classroom as they are in the boardrooms of North America, or in the living room of every home. Prejudice exists in our minds, when we choose to look for differences in each other rather than similarities. The things that we perceive to keep us apart actually define how similar we are. That is the moral of this story. When the White Spots and Red Dots determine that the Nots are separate and different from themselves, in essence, their collective efforts create pink...the Not! Discover how Pink is able to convert their negative label into a positive self-image.

wrote this story on Pink Day
in 2011. She awoke with the story wrestling to get out of her imagination, spilling out onto the paper as fast as she could write. Fawn believes when we listen and see with our hearts, our perspective changes and the world becomes a more inclusive place. She lives in Saskatoon, and is married with two children, two grandchildren and two dogs.
