This past October CBC WKTB News anchor Jennifer Livingston received an e-mail from a casual viewer which read;
it’s unusual that I see your morning show, but I did so for a very short time today. I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn’t improved for many years. Surely you don’t consider yourself a suitable example for this community’s young people, girls in particular. Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain. I leave you this note hoping that you’ll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle.”
This was her response and what a response it was; diplomatic but right on point. This man truly felt validated in telling her how she must “consider herself” and in such, it is empowering to witness her resilience. Regardless of her size, she seems to be quite the example not only for the children within her community but worldwide.
