The third annual P.S. I Love You Day was celebrated across Long Island and the country on Friday. 

Founded by West Islip High School senior Brooke DiPalma in 2012, P.S. I Love You Day is an extension of the campaign of kindness created in memory of DiPalma's father Joseph, who committed suicide in 2010. The movement has grown to support individuals suffering from depression, suicidal thoughts and bullying.

"Today has been one of the most magical days," DiPalma wrote on the P.S. I Love You Day Facebook page Friday afternoon. "I cannot thank you enough. I cannot wait to see how the love is spread tomorrow, the next day, the next year."

Having been bullied(and beaten) when I was younger (for being Jewish!) I know the pain and anguish it can cause. Years ago I was driving home and heard this song on the radio. I literally had to pull over because I couldn't see through my tears while listening to it. I immediately called singer Frank Rendo and told him he HAD to record this! Take a listen and just imagine if the world heeded to it's message. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udVybgJjs1A

I loved the idea my tenth grader came home and told me he spent his lunch money on a T shirt to support PS I love you day. So inspirational that our districts are supporting this cause. Lots of hugs for pur children
