Just Two Chicks!

Bullying comes in many forms: physical, verbal, passive behavior. It leaves one with a variety of agonizing feelings: about themselves, about their tormentors, about the world. Lets face it, your life IS your world. It's all you've got. Any one person or group can be the victim of bullying, and any one person or group can be the bully.

I'm posting this link to a 5 page article I've just read. Though this is an extreme circumstance of bullying, representing each form of, and tormentor, listed above, don't think for a second these things aren't happening all around you every single day. What can we do to stop this? To reach these kids... to teach them of their worth. They're ALL worthy. Don't think for an instant that the kids doing the tormenting feel any more worthy than those they torture. You would be amazed the things those little bullies go through in their own homes. I'm not defending them... no way, because I know what they grow up to be. How do we change this? Ah, there are days I feel so small....

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday... I need to get moving! There are errands to run, and well, that's about it. I'm trying to rid myself of a continuous 4 day headache... the kind that hurts when you touch your head, you know? It's a new one for me, but hey, I've still been productive!! Morning cleaning was done this morning even! ;)

Have a great day everyone, and please read the entire article. I don't know why these things shock me, but they do. Maybe I'll post about a bullying incident I experienced as a teen. Mine was a small incident, but one that shaped my life... for the better I think!

Thank you for the suggestion to read the article. I almost didn't because I knew it would be similar to other tragic stories; and sadly,it is. However, we need to KEEP reading about these tragedies, to stay aware of what's happening because it is very real.

I'm reminded of a teen girl who I know, who I suspect is lesbian. I want so much to ask her mom if she is, but I don't know how it will be received. I care a lot about the girl and would want to know if she has any bullying issues.

I'm going to do the reading after supper. In the meantime, I hope you've had a great Saturday, that your headache has finally quit, and that you will have a wonderful Sunday.

Blessings and Bear hugs.
