It’s hard to imagine what some children are facing day in and out at the hands of their peers. You hear so many horrible stories and watch so many graphic videos of children being bullied around at school, on the play ground and on the school bus. There was one video that I watched recently of a pre teen who got onto the school bus, and as soon as he sat down, some one attacked him. For NO reason at all, other then maybe they just did not like him. NO ONE did anything to stop this bullying and violence. The school bus driver just kept on driving and never once yelled or asked them to stop! After one teen beat up this kid to the school bus ground, the kid got up and sat back down only to have a second teen do the same things only moments later! The school bus video caught it ALL. I cried at I watched this, thinking would if that was MY child being beaten? I could not stand to think about that! My heart breaks for children and kids everywhere that go through the horrible thing called “Bullying”. It happens EVERYDAY.
