How else can we stop the abuse? What would Christ, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Mohammad, the Dalai Lama or Mother Theresa say or do? I would guess that they would get out into the streets and do something about it. Must we always wait until we reach the point of being "as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!"?

Teachers only see their students for six hours a day. What happens outside of school walls we as parents, family members, churches, organizations and community members must take responsibility. It has to be a 24 hour, consistent attack and reprimand.
In May of this year, a 13 year old, Rachel Ehmke of Mantorville, Minn., committed suicide due to peer abuse and bullying.

Well folks, I hate to break the news to you, but here in Casper we are not insulated Nike 2015 Max Air from the ongoing national trend of bullying and general taunting of fellow human beings. We can see it in our schools, we can see it on our streets, and yes, we can even see it at a beautiful Nic Fest. When does this abuse of power, the bigotry, and the lack of basic human respect to the oppressed end? How do we stop it?
Name calling, laughing, jeering, using words describing a faction of people in a derogatory fashion are all abominable choices of interaction and can be construed as bullying. They are not harmless. They are not just "kidding moments" or jokes. They hurt people. They make those oppressed people feel less than who they are.

Not a big deal? Let me add just a few more facts to the situation. My two female friends are committed partners to each other. Still not a big deal? How about the fact that my friend who lost her hat in the wind was diagnosed with cancer, has been in chemo treatments, and had subsequently lost all of her hair. Yes folks, she was bald.
