LET'S STOP BULLYING, PART III



How can we put a stop to bullying?

WHAT'S ONE POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO THE 
 BULLYING PROBLEM HARMING OUR SCHOOL SYSTEMS AND DESTROYING TENDER SELF-ESTEEMS?

We need to examine ourselves. Inspect our behavior. Search the nooks and crannies of our souls. 
ARE WE SECRETLY BULLIES?
ARE WE?

HOW CAN WE STOP BULLYING IN SCHOOLS?

The pitcher spit on the ball, rubbed it for good luck, wound his arm back three times for good measure, cranked it over his head and lobbed it faster than a meteor hurling through space.
The ball slammed the catcher’s mitt so hard, the catcher lost his lunch. The batter grimaced, tossed his bat, and gave up. That’s how bullying affects us. It hits us so hard in the gut, we lose the ability to respond and instead we react.

Tackling the bullying problem is like putting out a rampant fire threatening to burn down a house.
