We have to put an end to bullying NOW

I watched this video on facebook this afternoon and it made my heart break.  Bullying takes a terrible toll.

After I watched Jonah’s video, I read his update.  He’s doing better.  He’s come out to his family, he’s no longer pretending that everything is ok.  He’s taken a stand against bullying.  Jonah is an incredibly strong kid.  He’s come through this terrible experience.  He’s survived.  Even though his scars are healed, Jonah will carry them for the rest of his life.  No child show have to know such fear, isolation and sadness.  And what about those children who don’t have Jonah’s strength?  Will they survive being bullied?  We must protect our children.

We have to put an end to bullying NOW.

    Thank you Elizabeth. Please do spread the word. Silence is what enables bullies…our silence as a society, and the silence bullies instill on their victims.

    Thank you, Sheryl, for posting this. I was compelled to share it on my blog as well. Bullying MUST stop.
