Hi all! Sorry but have been busy, but have a few days off. J
I have been pretty busy doing research for “4 a Better World 2morrow! Alice's World!” Boy it takes a lot of time but worth it if it keeps people aware and helps others.
The more I find out about some of these kids, the more it makes me realize that bullying HAS to stop! The kids that I am finding are really young 10/11 yrs. old! They are just starting to live and their life is over because other kids think it is funny to call them names and harass them.
When I talk with people I know, I realize that many don’t understand what I am trying to do. That makes what I am doing even more important. Everyone needs to see what I am seeing. If they did maybe they would see that it is everyone’s responsibly to protect our young, and teach them that bullying will never be tolerated. We have to get people away from thinking “ah there only kids”, “they will grow out of it” or my favorite “they are just bored they need to do more sports etc.” These are excuses! If they get away with it now what kind of person will they grow up to be? Maybe the rare one will grow out of it and realize it is wrong but for the most part they will grow up and bully people all their lives. They will continue to treat others with no respect and expect to get whatever they want by whatever means they deem acceptable. What about their kids? Will they grow up to be like them? They see their parent/s doing it and getting away with it so why can’t they. Even now there are those that get away with bullying coworkers, neighbors and even friends. In the work place it is worse; we need to work to survive, but one person pushing people around without any regard to how it is affecting others, makes going to work stressful. These people usually punish everyone if anyone points out what they are doing. They have no respect for coworkers or even the company they work for. They can make your dream job a living hell.
I am beginning to understand why some say we need cameras everywhere. In schools if a child is being bullied it seems that either it is being ignored or both the bully and the victim are punished. That isn't right. I do realize that it may be hard to prove who is doing what, so it seems the answer is cameras. Which then means that it will stop at school, but what about away from school? It seems that maybe we need cameras everywhere, how sad is that?
If we had cameras everywhere imagine what would happen. Crime rate down, bullying almost impossible, drivers obeying the rules of the road, kidnapping down and no more workers standing around doing nothing, customers being treated with respect- you get the picture?
If people actually acted like the intelligent beings we claim to be, we wouldn’t need such drastic measures. It really is said. L
Well I do have to go but I found a site that may interest you or someone you know. It is called FacingCancer.ca. I just heard about it recently and if you know someone with cancer it may be useful to you and them.
One more thing before I go. If you or someone you know would be interested in helping with my blog “4 a Better World 2morrow! Alice's World!” (4abetterworld2morrow.com).
