Growing up in a Reserve, I sure saw a lot of bullies. Today many of those bullies are old and feeble. Some are not so feeble but sure live a life of misery. Bullying is all over the place. We see it in the face of our politicians: Prime Minister Harper is a bully with great power. All bullying upsets me, regardless if it is the powerful countries picking on poor countries or even the bullying that goes on with their own people.
But the bullying that upsets me is the bullying at this moment is the bullying that causes a young person to take their own life. Can you imagine how awful a young child must feel, that their only way out is to end their life? What the fuck is wrong with this picture. Not sure of what could be done to stop this. The government can pass laws to ban bullying or to punish the people who are bullies. But is that really the answer? I don't know.
I wish it was easy to say don't do that, or do this and issues could be taken care of, but that is not how the world is really like. What causes bullying anyway?
This is really sick, even after this young man (boy) took his own life, the bullies still continue to bully him. What the fuck???
A young girl of 15 was buried the other day. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/story/2011/11/30/teen-suicide-bullying.html
It sure must be awful to be her family; anger, hurt, immeasurable sadness. I wonder if those that bullied her
will ever understand what they have done?
An Ottawa Teen suicide linked to being bullied.
"The disturbing rash of LGBT teen suicides began receiving attention last fall. Among those who took their own life was 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old Rutgers University student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge between New Jersey and New York after his roommate allegedly filmed him having sex with another man."
