Bullies: Al Capone, Nelson Muntz …
I picked up an article in a newspaper today, while waiting to see someone. Publishers were acknowledging the high volume of books coming out about bullying. 1800 + books came out in 2012.
A story recently emerged in the news regarding two high school boys who are charged, and convicted, for raping a young high school lady / student, who was extremely intoxicated. The two guys were on the high school football team.
I had a post last week about this, pulled it after two days, because the post seemed too … heavy … for what I wanted for this blog. It was appropriate; not unfair. But I did not think I was ready to put out a post with such an intensity, about such a sensitive subject. Obviously, there are plenty of people talking / writing about bullying. And yet, here I am, with a post about bullying.
Bullying is a darkness that hangs out where we all live. And, it hits home for many of us. This is a tough issue to process; and this is a good place to wrap up now. Maybe I can bring more to the table at my next blogging session. Peace, T.
