This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
Being 6'4", Glee's Dot-Marie Jones knows a thing or two about bullying.
The actress experienced some hurtful words while growing up, which is why she's lending her star power to promote a new children's anti-bullying book, Just Like You.
"I grew really fast … seven inches in six months. Kids would say comments like, 'You're so tall, you should have been a man. Are you a man? Are you a woman?' It still strikes a nerve. Kids don't realize how powerful words are.
It doesn't matter what your differences are. You have to embrace what your likenesses are, and that we're all just like you."
Preach, sister! Great job on promoting a book with such a wonderful message. And to see the book trailer for Just Like You, click after the jump!
