Why are we losing the Good Ones?
We lost four in Ohio. We lost one at Rutgers. We are losing them left and right because we let it happen. We, the adults, the ones that form the laws and pretend we know what happens in our child’s life. We don’t, period. How many come home and tell us they are being bullied at school? How many admit the teasing’s of others hurts?
“We’ll handle it” is said by too many school officials and nothing is done. I am not one in favor of a lot of laws, but it is time to put a stop to this! Don’t make it a school rule. Don’t make it a state law. This has to be a federal law based on hate crimes. Everyone is different, so let’s learn to tolerate and even learn from those differences.
We are losing the good ones and leaving the mean ones. People may not agree, but I personally say we need to lock up the bullies before more people with an accent, a different way of life (gay or lesbian, Jewish, etc.), or that just like to dress or be different in some way, get forced to decide suicide is their only way out.
Contact your congressperson, your school administrators, or whomever you can, do stop this practice. There is friendly teasing and malicious. It is this latter that is killing off the good folks and leaving the mean and spiteful bullies.
IT IS TIME TO STOP BULLYING!
