Can An Anti-Bullying Video Be Too Shocking?
The images are shocking and disturbing.
Just like the real thing.
But can an anti-bullying video be too shocking?
You be the judge...
And all I'll say is this: it shouldn't shock anyone in France.
Not after this.
And it shouldn't shock anyone in Canada either. Not In a country where a mother can be mocked for complaining about her son being bullied.
“Someone is bullying my Justin and that makes me mad,” she said, presumably to groans of embarrassment from everyone there.
Not in a country where a gay teenager in New Brunswick can plead for help.
A gay New Brunswick teen hospitalized after a suicide attempt is speaking about being bullied to the point of no return. Adam Roberts says things got so bad he didn’t want to live anymore.
But not find it, because people and governments don't care enough.
Not in a country where Stephen Harper can get away with killing a National Anti-Bullying Strategy just to please his rabid religious base. And bullies his opponents like a political pervert.
Not in a country where so many kids have died, and only two questions demand to be answered:
How can we accept to live in a country where bullies rule? And still call ourselves Canadians.
And how can we defeat this hideous problem?
With a monstrous bully as a leader...
