This morning I woke up, like every other morning, and checked Facebook on my phone. Amanda (my 19 year old daughter) had posted in her status 'take a stand against bullying'. There was a YouTube video attached and I clicked on it.
I invite you to click on it. Please do not skip this part. You need to watch this!
My question is, how does someone so young get to this point. This is a real cry for help. I have watched many videos that have been sent to me that have brought me to tears, but this one really broke my heart.
He is a human being, with feelings. He is someone's son, grandson! His is likely someone's brother. He is someone's friend (at least one person anyway). Why do people have to tear him down? We live in such a cruel, cruel world.
This video was uploaded in August. Here we are 4 months later and I am wondering how he is doing. He is in grade 8. Are things better for him or is he still struggling?
I will be showing this to my boys and reminding them to be kind to everyone.
