"The Bullying and Harassment Has To Stop" - Joel Burns

 

Stewart Penn recently added this blog post that is worthy of sharing with as many folks as possible.  For those who want to know how they can get involved within their own community and their local school district, please visit: www.nobully.com for information and resources to help you get started.

...According to the anti-bullying organization “No Bully”, an estimated 160,000 children refuse to go to school on any given day because they dread the physical and verbal aggression of their peers. No Bully is based in San Francisco, and it works with schools and educators to spread awareness about the problem and to develop and implement anti-bullying policies...

 

Up until today I'd never heard of Joel Burns.

But I received an email from a fellow ActiveRainer who wanted to share this YouTube clip with me and I'm so appreciative that she did. Councilman Joel Burns of Forth Worth delivered the most eloquent, sincere and compassionate speech that touched my heart and actually made me cry ..... not for me or how I feel, because I'm fine, I'm happy, settled and content.

Instead I cried for the desperate children who are being bullied and harassed, for those victims who can't see beyond the pain that's being inflicted on them.

I urge everyone who sees this viceo this to spread the word. Make others aware of this cruel and vicious "epidemic" that's destroying innocent young lives.
