You know, I want to call you an Ahole, but I agree with you. Its sad to see a young kid take his life over name calling, and I give my
condolences to the mother. But if I can take this into an un-personal matter, than I believe that every kid in school has to go through this. Its a
part of growing up and knowing oneself. This is a tough world, and our kids need to be taught how to survive and deal with people like that who try to
get at them in a personal manner. This world isnt all peaches and cream, and I think that this kind of treatment towards one another(as kids) is a
natural and everyday thing. Bullies are everywhere, just look at the people who are in government, they still havent learned to stop bullying people.
I think that maybe there is more to this story, and that maybe this child had other problems in his life that only took one little name to push him
over the edge. Thats just my opinion.
It's too bad we didn't have someone with a background in healthcare talking because it might actually be valuable then. No every kid in school
doesn't have to go through name calling. Instead of allowing name calling in school, and hurting those that don't name call, kick the bullies out
of school so that everyone else can learn
. It's not a part of growing up and it has nothing to do with knowing ones self.
If it is a "part of growing up" like you say, then basically rules can't be enforced. Often times the kids that get bullied don't fight back
verbally or phyisically, but it its a "part of growing up" and adults won't do anything about it, then they will start fighting back verbally and
physically. The kids that bully don't care about rules, the people that get bullied, do. Take away the rules, and the people that get teased will
fight back....which I'm not totally against. A good punch in the face would shut most of those bullies up.
You can't compare adult bullying to kid bullying, totally not the same. You can say what you want, but rules can't be enforced in your senario and
it would be a free for all. But I hope you know with your idea, that the people that are getting bullied will
fight back and the bullies will
soon become the bullied.
Call it the *invisible guy in the sky* or whatever you cretins want to name God, but, in this case and many cases where kids feel alone and
unloved and in pain - Jesus / God works.
I might be reading you wrong since its late, but was this possibly gay kid supposed to find comfort in a God that hates him?
You guys totally
got what was going on in this kid's mind down.
If this kid was gay, he probably thought and felt like he was hated by his peers, possibly his family, society, and even religion. How in the world
do you think you can even imagine what it was like. "grow some balls" people say, grow some brains yourselves.
