About Bullying

While surfing the Web, I ran into a poem today by Lynda Frederick on MSNBC.com:

that little girl who came to school with the clothes she wore the day before
instead of asking why.. you picked on her

the little girl who had to walk to school while others rode the bus
instead of asking why.. you picked on her

the little girl who had bruises and was dirty
instead of asking why.. you picked on her

the little girl who was always crying
instead of asking why.. you picked on her

The article goes on to say how after twenty-five years, the bullying incidents still hurt. The pain never really goes away.

Ms. Frederick's experience has gained a happy ending: as a result of her posting her poem on her high school class' facebook page, her tormentors have apologized to her. Now, if only all of the other tormentors would apologize to their victims.....
