A Bully Story With a Happy Ending
Because of the election I haven't had a chance to write about the issue I care about the most. The one that made me start blogging: the horrible problem of bullying in our schools.
And I know that some of my readers are disappointed. Because so few in our aging blogosphere ever write about the subject. And every lonely voice counts.
So what I want to say to them is that I consider what I'm doing to be part of the same struggle. Because Stephen Harper and his foul Cons are the worst gang of bullies this country has ever seen.
And if they ever get a majority, they will hurt poor people, seniors, women, gay people, and children in our schools.
Even though bullying is already a huge problem in Canada.
Made worse by those who could stop it, but don't.
“As police officers, it’s disturbing to see brawls of this nature involving young persons,” said O’Brien. “What’s also disturbing is to see the number of people who witness it, then do nothing to stop it.
So tonight I thought I'd show you a video about how standing up for those who are being bullied, can make life better for everyone.
A beautiful anti-bullying video all the way from Ireland...
If only there were more happy endings in the real world eh?
But one day there will be. Because this is what I take from that sweet story.
Whether you're fighting the Con bullies, or the ones in schoolyards, or workplaces, or senior homes, or wherever.
When the good unite, and say enough is ENOUGH.
We become stronger.
And the bullies can be DEFEATED...
