And no, this is not what I normally would post (although a normal post from me is not much at all lately, honestly writing, family and an EDJ are keeping me busy enough), but this is really something we need to read, listen and do something about…
I was bullied in elementary skill. Luckily it was for only one year, Grade 7. But it was enough. My oldest son has been bullied and so have some of his friends – they stuck together and now, thankfully, they are being left alone, but I still worry about high school. What if they are in the same high school together? Because at 11 years old this “bully” already has a police record. Because he didn’t stop with my son or his friends.
Last year, I was horrified to read that 12 years later poor Reena Virk still dealt with her bullies, even though she was long since dead by their hand. And the news lately just hurts my heart more.
If you see someone being bullied, don’t just walk away just because it may not be your kid or your “problem”. This problem belongs to all of us.
How many more kids will be hurt? How many more kids have to die?
