    Beacon’s Unique Message

     Beacon tackles the content of bullying in a way that is real and relatable to students. “Love your haters. Its that simple,” says Beacon. “Everybody has someone in their life who has done something to offend or hurt them. But each of us has a choice, are we going to choose to respond to those people in a negative way? Or will we choose to make good decisions regardless of our circumstances and emotions?”

    Beacon has been through his own share of abuse. In 3rd grade he was abused by a distant relative and did not tell anyone until he was 19. The abuse continued until 8th grade. He carried that very heavy secret in silence and it began ware him down. Eventually, he shared what had happened to him and started the beginning of his recovery. Now he is a successful musician with an amazing wife and kids. Beacon does his best to give hope to students who are struggling internally. His message encourages them to talk about it and find help.

    “So many young people are struggling in secret,” says Beacon. “Whether it is from someone bullying them, low self-esteem, or an abusive situation; our kids need to know that there is hope.”

    Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

    What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
    constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
    divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
    the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
    keep our commitments?

    Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

    Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
    experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
    situations in middle school and high school where it would
    have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
    However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
    committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

    Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

    Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
    will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
    people can accomplish great things by simply following through
    with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
    inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
    committments, but also keep those commitments.

    Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
