Sad...

First, I applaud this kid for talking about a difficult situation. That takes courage. Bullying is nothing more than cowardice expressing itself through cruelty. Sadly, it leaves scars on it's victims. Secondly, I could not imagine going back to high school now. With facebook and texting and twitter, the quantity of our ways to communicate with one another has gone up while the quality of what we have to say has gone down. For bully's looking to spread malicious rumors or to instigate fights, this technology makes it all to easy. I implore both parents and educators to take this sort of behavior seriously because the victims will stop reporting the incidents if nothing is done to help them and the bullies will escalate their actions if nothing is done to stop them.
