Marian J. Clennon Speaks:

I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT WHAT YOU TAUGHT IS STICKING WITH ME. iT IS A STRANGE FEELING SOMETIMES WHEN I REALIZE IT. SOMETIMES SOME OF MY OLD FRIENDS GET A LITTLE FRUSTRATED THAT I AM NOT THE OLD ME THAT KEPT REACTING.

STAYING POSITIVE IS A VERY DIFFICULT THING. ONCE YOU GET STARTED IT IS HARD TO STOP.ONE THING THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST THAT YOU TEACH IS THAT CHANGE IN YOUR ATTITUDE DOESN’T NECESSARILY HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.

LIKE ANY CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE, IT IS GRADUAL.I STILL HAVE A WAY TO GO BUT LOVE EVEN SEEING THE CHANGE IN MY LIFE.

THANK YOU SCARY!!

Hi Scary,

You visited my school a week ago today, where you spoke to the year 13s of Sharnbrook Upper. I tried the 7 days 7 nights, but found it really difficult. I learnt something about myself doing that, I realised how all the petty words that fly out your mouth in anger do nothing except spread that anger. You don’t feel any better for them, and neither does any one else. I’m not going to give up now, just because it’s been 7 days, and I hope I get better at it as time goes on.

I know in no way am I as bad off as some, I’ve made it through my stormy years of school where I had nowhere to turn from the bullying, but I still found you immensely helpful, thank you.

I hope you are well, I know even the strongest of people sometimes need an extra 17th hug.

A MESSAGE FROM SEAN . . . ROCK ON SEAN!!!

Scary,

I must say at the opening of your lecture, I was intimidated, somewhat scared, and anxious to hear what you had to say. As you walked into the room, there was dead silence as if disbelief took hold of the room, even though we all knew prior as to what you would look like with the tatoos and rough exterior. However, as the lecture progressed, I started to relax and become comfortable. You truly stand for the expression “never judge a book by it’s cover”. You truly are one of the most genuine people I have ever heard and your personality is both contagious and inspirational. I have reached out to thank you, Scary. I have never been more inspired in my life. Not to say I was a bad person to begin with, but to stop all the prejudgments I have towards people before I even know their name. If I had a nickel for everytime I saw a fat guy and turned towards my friend and made a remark, I’d probably have a good amount of money. Every person carries a unique story and each should be looked at as such, not all categorized in derogatory stereotypes people make in order to boost their own self-esteem as you have mentioned in your lecture at Rider University this past Monday.

I would be lieing if I said this 7 day challenge was easy, because it certainly is not, but I am working on it. Society is becoming more and more cruel with each new generation. Best friends calling each other names in “kidding” fashion and women becoming more and more used as objects for people’s sexual enjoyment. I can’t help the world as you say, but I am starting to save mine. I want my mind to become pure and full of love. With your inspirational words and accomplishments, I believe it can be done. Good luck on your quest to lecture those fortunate enough to hear your words and for future successes coming your way. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences and revelations and for opening the eyes of many.

Sincerely,
Sean O’Hara

A LETTER FROM ROBYN

I recently joined a group facebook page about Tucson and our memories thereof. The Scary Guy came up as a memory, and I thought you’d want to know.

I remember being with my young son, probably 6 or 7 at the time and going into the restaurant connected to The Gaslight Theater and seeing The Scary Guy sitting there. My son asked me about him and all I knew about him at the time was that he actually changed his name legally to The Scary Guy and it was because of how he looked. But, not to judge him.

I am so pleasantly surprised to read up on the Scary Guy and see how he is helping communities with acceptance, and bullying and I\\\’m so proud of him. I have three kids who all have been bullied in their schools, and probably were participants as well, unfortunately, and I wish our schools, communities had more Scary Guy’s to teach our young as it now goes into the media age of computers and smartphones.

I never knew all the great work The Scary Guy has been doing, and feel proud he was part of our Tucson community and memories.

SHANA HOLDEN IS TEACHING HER CHILDREN

Dear Scary,

Years ago you shared your message with my children and gave them each signed photos to remind them of what they had learned. That day, you won my respect, admiration and continued support. I share what I learned from you whenever I can, and I tell people about you often.

I am a longtime fan and will continue to do whatever I can to help bring your message to the world.

The world is a better place for having Scary Guy in it!
Thank you for your hard work and dedication!

ASTRID MAKES CHANGES

Hey, Scary!

Today I finally want to thank you for the inspiration you have been for me during the last years. I saw you first on the French-German-TV-Channel quite some time ago – and to be honest I was impressed, but forgot your message too soon. Nevertheless every now and then it came back to me, when my job at a University in Germany as a research assistant became too much for me, because some students were aggressive and offending me. I wasn’t so sure if I really liked the compliment “Among your enemies you’re having a good name”, because I never wanted to be hated or give others the impression that I despised them. But obviously somehow it went that way.

One night I when I was really desperate and couldn’t sleep because of all the anger I felt, I was watching your videos on youtube and when I listened again to you telling about that offending ad in the newspaper that made you reflect your life and your attitude that was the point when I finally wanted to turn around my direction as well, because I realized it was wrong. So I quit my job and in September this year I am leaving for Canada for several months, for a complete re-start, for doing something I love, for learning more about myself and to change my attitude to myself and to other people. Because for a long time I took up all the negative energy my boss, my students, colleagues and so on gave to me and I kept it inside – and in the end it made me seriously sick. At that point I remembered you and your message I heard a couple of years ago and that was the night I sat in front of the computer for several hours, watching your youtube-videos and I said to myself “Yes, that’s the right way. You have to create love to replace hate”.

Just wanted to tell you about having this impact on me and on my life. You are an amazing and precious man, thank you for sharing your message! I love you. Facebook says you already have too many friends (can anyone have too many friends?), so you can’t ad me – but I hope you get this message.

Best wishes and a big hug from Germany!

Astrid
