Dealing With Intimidation.
TalkAboutIt.org was created by Greg Grunberg (star of NBC's HEROES) in collaboration with the Epilepsy Foundation, and unites Hollywood stars to ask questions and to provide answers on epilepsy awareness, and invite change in the public's false understanding and perceptions about epilepsy.
INT. NIGHT. DARKENED PEDESTRIAN SUBWAY TUNNEL.
Actor Milo Ventimiglia steps suddenly in the middle of a cavernous tube station underpass and speaks:
Milo Ventimiglia: If you play sports, make sure to talk about it with your coach and teammates so they know what to do in case of a seizure.
Each day 160,000 kids stay home from school because they are afraid of being bullied. Bullies are not cool, they are not tough. If you have epilepsy and a bully is making fun of you, do NOT stay silent about it. You have more friends than you think. I'm one of those friends. Stand up for yourself. Talk about it.
Milo, with a friendly nod, exits to the left, to the sound of distant footsteps.
