On the eve of National Bullying Prevention Month, there is no better time to meet Lizzie Velasquez, a brave 26-year-old woman who suffers from rare condition which prevents her from gaining weight and causes accelerated aging.

Lizzie first came under the spotlight at the age of 17, when a YouTube video called her the “world’s ugliest woman". Her brand new documentary tells of her triumphant journey to the other side of online bullying.

A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story premiered this past weekend, find a theater near you: http://imwithlizzie.com/

We're loving the messages Sacred Heart students took away from their field trip!
“Until you follow in the steps of the persecuted and walk into the gas chamber, you can never fully understand the fear that millions of innocent people faced during the Holocaust,” declared Max.Mrs. Nordlie’s eighth grade class at Sacred Heart Parish School spent a day “following the steps of the persecuted” at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, learning about the horrors of prejudice and the responsibility of tolerance.They stopped at the ...

Today is #MandelaDay! On what would have been Nelson Mandela's 97th birthday, the question we must ask ourselves is: What we are doing to make the world a better place?

Mandela Day actions, no matter how big or small, should consistently focus on the realization or restoration of dignity and empowerment through contributions. The Nelson Mandela Foundation identifies key focus areas that have particular significance: Food Security, Education & Literacy, Shelter & Infrastructure, and Service & Volunteerism

Check out the various ways you can get involved and learn more about Mandela Day:

I got the groupon deal for this museum and I've been wanting to check this museum out. Make sure to plan your day out, because it may take you at least 3hours to explore everything. There is FREE underground parking, they will check your ID and car trunk, so be aware of that. Once you get in you get your ticket and go through security scans. You will then go to a mini orientation (which is only about a minute) that describes to you where to go to. Your visual tour is about 1.5 hrs. Each tour starts every 10 minutes and once you wait for the next tour you receive a passport card about a child that was in the concentration camp. The tour was very informative, I learned a few things that I didn't know already from history class. We also got to meet and have a chance to ask questions for one of the survivors. It was an overall informative trip to MOT.

I was really excited to visit this museum but it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. I wish they showed more artifacts from the Holocaust or WWII but the exhibit a time exhibit with video after video with a different backdrop. I thought the videos quickly lost the attention of many people very quickly. Most of the information being shown here was very general, most of which many would already know if they went to school. This exhibit was like watching a documentary, which I feel like I would rather watch on my own time.

I took my 10 year old to see the Ann Frank exhibit. It was remarkable. I was educated on this day. It was hurtful to know that in 2015 the same ugliness still lives.@the end you get to use the touchscreen to post your feelings & thoughts. As a black woman raising my son... I chose to fight discrimination. I'd love for him to be ok when he leaves the house. She wanted love & peace. We all need to want the same thing. To love & be peaceful. It would be a good day everyday.

This place was wonderful! Our tour guide, Michael, was super nice. My favorite exhibits were The POV Diner and the Millenium Machine. The Holocaust one freaked me out a little, but it was so fun! Definately recommend this place!

I went here as part of a school trip. I am in the play Anne Frank and so my cast and I decided to go. We started with the Anne Frank exhibit first. Our tour guide had no idea what she was saying. She would skip very important things and we would just walk past them. Several times she began a sentence saying "and this was named after"... and she would pause and just say "well anyways" and continue on going. She talked to all of us like we were five yes old, when we are in high school. When we finished the anne frank tour, the only way to get out was the way we came in. We walked past several groups and interupted them. It was time for us to eat, so we went to the cafe. We had preordered our food, but when we got their they were short on the food we ordered. We had already payed for the food too. We had too wait for everyone's food to be ready. The fries were like little pieces of cement, and the hamburgers, I'm sure, went even meat. We began the second tour of the Holocaust exhibit and we skipped two parts immediately. Our tour guide said we were short on time because we took so long eating. The Holocaust portion of the museum is all just a bunch of videos. With not enough seats, you have to stand the whole time. When we went in this room which I assume was the gas chamber, but our tour guide never told us, it was just some more videos. Another group walked in and our tour guide immediately kicked us out, but we hadn't even finished the video. That was the end of the museum. None of my cast nor my director liked it. We all agreed that if we had learned one thing, it was to never go back there again.

Great museum. First portion of the museum speaks about intolerance in today's modern society and the repercussions. The second portion focuses on the WW2 and the genocide of the jews. Also they have guest speakers who were actual survivors of the holocaust speak.
