Victims of Bullies
I saw a story about the bullied bus monitor, and it touched me. I felt horrible when I saw the videos. When I heard 5k had been raised for her for a vacation, I thought it was wonderful. But then I saw 650k, and became a little upset. Money of that kind could go to awareness for children and schools to combat bullying.
My daughter is 12 years old and suffers from mental health issues. She has dealt with bullies her entire life. There have been times where she has been suspended from school on purpose just to escape her tormentors. This last year she was almost put into in-patient therapy, recommended by the school, for threatening herself at school because of the bullying. Has the school done anything to STOP the bullying? No. They discourage the person that is already down and out. So I thought, what the hey, I’ll do this for her and see if she can raise $100 for this dolly she’s been wanting. But then I saw that it starts at $500!
Kay is really into kids and helping them. Her dream is to be a nurse at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and help kids with cancer. Since Kay doesn’t have any friends really, the time not spent hanging out with her mother and I, is spent watching Youtube video after Youtube video of kids at cancer treatment hospitals.
This isn’t some yarn just trying to pull a leg or two. I could really care less about the money (as I will end up buying her a dolly in any event). But this is more to express that these kids need help, bullies and victims alike.
What happened to miss Karen is awful, but she is an adult. The child victims of these bullies aren’t mature enough to handle it. Please reach out to your children and find out if they are bullying others, or even more importantly if they are being bullied. If they are, get them the help they deserve. So please, give all that you can from your heart, or just send heart felt wishes. Or, try and do something in your own neighborhood to raise funds and/or awareness. Better yet just find a kid who needs a mature friend to hang with and talk it out! Thank you to all!
