Just watched the video of the children harassing the bus monitor lady.
I do not know who to be more disappointed in: the kids or their parents.
Children are an impeccable mirror of society. In this case, a sad mirror.
But, shortly after watching that video I saw a friend of mine post this story on facebook:
An Indiegogo fundraiser in her name has pulled in more than $190,000 to send her on her way. (The amount continues to rise; we’ll update the numbers
as it does.) The fundraiser was started by Reddit user Max Sidorov of Toronto, Canada. When Sidorov heard about Klein’s salary — $15,506,
according to a district website — he decided she did not make enough money to have to put up with that type of harassment.
“As soon as I heard of Karen Huff Klein … I had to create a fundraiser here for this nice lady,” Sidorov writes in his profile. “Let’s give
Karen a vacation of a lifetime, let’s show her the power of the internets and how kind and generous people can be.”
The reasoning behind the fundraiser was personal, in way. “I’ve had experience with bullying from school.” Sidorov told Mashable. “I know how
bad it can feel.”

I think this is a beautiful example of human generosity and compassion.
There is a spiritual battle going on in the world right now in which
the dark is getting darker
and to counter
the light is growing brighter.
So do not let the hatred and anger of anyone, especially physically/emotionally neglected children.
Their anger is only a symptom of their drowning in pool of confusion and the lack of love.
Spread love and light and kindness, even to those who disrespect us.
Have a blessed day, guys.
