This recording is from an
interview with Pasco School
concerning the assault on
Jared High. This is a
recording of a recording
and it isn't real clear,
but worth the download
effort. Jared had a real
mellow voice. Note:

wait for it to load entirely

I work on campaigns - I'm always vocal about what I believe, but vocally
to the Washington State House Ed. Committee about Bullying in Jan. 2002.
The bill passed the Committee unanimously, then passed the House, Senate,
and then was signed by the Governor into law in March 2002.
with other activists to get anti bullying laws passed around the USA and
founded Bully Police USA in October 2003.
to the Arizona State House Ed. Committee about Bullying in 2004, then the
AZ State Senate in Feb. 2005. Arizona passed their anti bullying
law in May 2005 and it was signed by the Governor into law.
(Note: Jared was born in Phoenix in 1985 so I'm pleased that I had a chance
to help get a law passed in Arizona.)
was pleased to see "Jared's Law" passed in Idaho. Jared is buried in Ashton

I love The
Constitution in the Tradition of the Founding Fathers.
Favorite TV shows
(if not working on the computer) - News shows such as FOX News, anything Star Trek or Sci-Fi, Voyager (love reruns),
adventure/tearjerker movies and love stories. I like home makeovers shows,
like "Fixer Upper" "Property Brothers," and "Tiny House," etc.
with the Wind"; Just can't beat Vivian Leigh & Clark Gable.
There are lots of favorites as far as actors are concerned, but I especially
like Adrien Brody because he has beautiful puppy dog eyes
and he impressed me with his acting in "The Pianist".
Ol' Time Rock and Roll - as long as the lyrics aren't nasty and the guitars
don't scream. I like most Classical music, especially Antonio
Vivaldi - The 4 Seasons. I like some Country music - if the
guitars don't 'twang' - Big Band Era and Swing music - Glen Miller (I liked
the movie too, with James Stewart) - Santana, Old Beatles music, Old Carpenters
music, Yanni and my favorite, JOSH GROBAN, who sings like an Angel!
I like just about anything that has a catchy tune to sing to, and a good
beat to dance to. When I was in college, I even won some dance contests,
...and, believe it or not, I used to do 'The Bump'!
Walking and climbing mountain trails - I don't jog because I ultimately will trip over something, I'm
really clumsy. In the past I have enjoyed (or tried to enjoy), rollar-blading,
softball, tennis, golf, swimming, ping pong, billiards, hiking, 4 Wheeling,
water skiing, snow skiing, surfing, snowmobiling, fishing, horseback riding
and bowling. ...Someday, I might try skydiving, when I've gone completely
of Books -
I like self-improvement books, Scriptures and spiritually uplifting books,
truthful and educational books, and quick, easy to read, books. I
also like Textbooks - Sometimes I like 'hard to read' books. When
I read the Newspaper, I skip the propaganda in the editorials, but I like
Letters to the Editor. I wish I could read more but I don't have
much time... I'm always working on web pages.
I love People
You may be a strange duck, maybe you look different and act different,
but for some odd reason, I like you anyway. I really hate gossip
because I have been gossiped about. I know what its like to be hurt.
Even if I disagree with someone, I will find common ground... and usually
when it comes to helping kids who are bullied, we always agree.

I can't do -
I'm not a very good cook... I burn eggs, ...and almost our house at the
same time. I'm a lousy decorator and I have no idea where to put
things on a wall, like, "Oh, this is a good spot, there's nothing on that
part of the wall!" As mentioned above, I don't jog. I also
won't ride on fast roller-coasters, mostly because I'll throw-up.
Also, I won't eat sugar free chocolate - If it's not the real thing it's
not worth having. I can't sleep in church ...someone has to tell
my husband when to wake up.
more information about me? Why? Okay,
you can see a more serious "resume" about me at www.bullypolice.org/brenda.html
as the Co-Director of Bully Police USA.
last but not least I'll leave you on a more spiritual tone -
Favorite Scripture is, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give
unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your
heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." St. John 14:27
