Seen in blogsphere... an anti-bullying message

One of the awful things a child (and, even an adult) has to bear is being bullied. Whether it's physical or othewise, or name calling, the effect on a person's spirit is the same ... crushing, just crushing. How often hope is lost and the person being bullied decides that the only relief is to die. God be merciful.

Mark Daniels reports:
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you...:
One of my nieces posted this on Facebook recently and I re-posted it. It contains a great anti-bullying message and apparently was circulated in connection with suicide prevention:
The girl you just called fat? She is overdosing on diet pills.
The girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her.
The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home.
See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for our country.
That guy you just made fun of… for crying? His mother is dying

How true. I liked this. My granddaughter gets a lot of bullying. She write about it in school and spoke to her school counselor about doing an anti bullying program. She is only 10. She would applaud this too :)

I don't know if bullying has increased over the years or it's just being reported on more. Whatever... it's a terrible experience for a child and sets them up to a life time of being on the receiving end of other's venom.
Good on your granddaughter!
