The Voice Of Vinny

“It’s my wish that all, who have ever been, or know someone who’s been bullied, to Stand GRAND. It simply means to stand tall and high no matter what situation occurs. To always hold your head up and be proud of who YOU are. It means to listen to your heart and follow your dreams. To achieve whatever you set your mind to. It means to never let anyone stand in your way.


To Stand GRAND is to push away the negative and pull the positive closer. Don’t pay attention to the cruel and hurtful words that may come your way to try and stop, break you, and strip you of your goals. A friend once told me, “When people throw dirt at you, they are losing ground. All you have to do is shake the dirt off and pack it under your feet. The more dirt they throw, the higher you go, and you rise well above them and the situation.”


“We can Stand GRAND, to and through anything, yes even against our own fears. It is my mission to make the world GRAND.”


- Vinny Castronovo

    Vinny’s so amazing. I’ve always been bullied about my weight and used to cut a lot. now I’ve found the I need to “Stand Grand” and be confident in myself. Now I’m a completely different person I’m happier than I’ve ever been, the cutting has stopped, and I’ve found true friends I can trust when I’m feeling down. Still I did lose some weight but I’m too stressed over dropping weight. Vinny has totally inspired me. I <3 him.

    I have no doubt in my mind that you’re going to change the world. You’ve arleady changed my life and a thousand of others too (: We can learn a lot from you Vinny. I think of everything you conquered and…it’s like someone gave me something to lift my heart up and to motivate me to reach higher and higher. To achieve whatever I want no matter what people say to stop me. Some inpirations inspire you to fend off bullies, some make you feel like you can do anything. But YOU make me GRAND. I CAN rise above what anyone tells me I can’t do. I WON’T ever tell anyone what they can or can’t do. I will ALWAYS stand GRAND. Because that’s what you taught me to do. And it’s what I’ve grown to love you for. (:

    It takes guts to be able to say such inspirational things that so many people now live by and I know that Vinny gives such good advise because he didnt have the easiest times growing up with bullies but he stayed GRAND and its because of his past that he is so inspirational and the Vinny we love today. Vinny is my idol and I love him to death such an inspiration and he should be proud of how GRAND he is :) <3 LOVE YOU CASTRONOVO

    This saying and the saying Starve a bully Feed your soul helped me alot when I was in a fight with this guy because he was being mean to my friend soo I was standing up for her!! He started trying to tear me down but I just STANDED GRAND and didnt let his words get to me!! Before I really knew your story I was getting bullied over Facebook by what I thought who was my friend just because he thought I was being annoying but I wasnt mean to him and he wouldnt tell me why he was treating me like I dodnt have any feelings then I got soo mad at him I started to fight back and I went upstairs by myself and just cryed on my balcony I didnt know why I was getting treated that way!! but then I heard about you and your inspiring amazing story and the next time we got in a fight and he was being mean I was thinking of you Vinny in my head!!
    You and Jesus Christ help me get through ruff and tuff times!! <3 :) )) StandGrand

    Chenzo, you are truely the best person that has ever layed a foot on this planet.. you and your family. you have a beautiful and amazing family! I was bullied too, but once you came along, and showed me that i am more than what they say, i am more then what the think i am, i started over. i stand grand now. words cannot explain the amount of insperation you let off each and every day, its like sweat for you. Thank you Vincent, for being the person that helped me stand up when i fell, who helped me realize that i can be whatever i want to be and i dont need other people’s confermation, thank you for making realize that i am worth something here, and i am not just some piece of dust that can be swept off with a swiffer sweeper. Honestly, you have changed my life, and without you, i dont think i would be where i am today.
    you dont even realize how much you impacted so many people’s lives. you dont realize how much you mean to people. without you half of the people commenting on these would probubly not even be here right now, and yeah, thats sad, but thats what society has come to. i am not one of those fangirls who are going to come to your house or who have your phone number. i am symply here to thankyou for everything. i am here to show you that people care more than you think.. which i am SURE you can tell from all of that ^^ but im just saying.
    i wana thank all of the Castronovo’s. Vincent for all of that good stuff^^. Alessandra for your song “Beautiful You.” i write it on my hand when i am having a bad day, and suddenly i turn the bad into good. you are like the Good Which or something.. you are magic. thank you. Bianca for your entertainment. you are hilarious whether you know it or not:>) and Mr. and Mrs. Castronovo for bringing these lovely people into this world..
    I’ll be shoulder shining my triangle face off if you need me:>)

    This is the wisest thing I have ever read. The dirt one…that was amazingly intelligent. I will keep that with me wherever I go.

    Thank you for teaching me to stay true to myself because, lately, I have been trying to blend in, and be ‘normal,’ to give people what they are expecting and want, but you have taught me to stay true to who you are, no matter what others think, as long as you are comfortable with yourself. Now, I can stay weird and finally be proud of that! Because we all know, if you’re not weird, you’re not GRAND.

    Thank you.

    And I am sure all of the other GRANDerz are thanking you too.

    I love you!

    I will always Stand GRAND.

    You are so amazing! What you said was really true. Everything you do makes the world GRAND. I know now that standing up for myself is not as bad as i thought it would be. i can finally be my GRAND self around my friends. You made me realize that it’s not bad to be who you are. You are awesome. Because if your not weird, your not GRAND.

    Thank you.

    I love you!

    Remember Stand GRAND !
