All this is true..but we adults need to consider where these kids have learned to bully…we need to consider our own behavior, politicians, rock stars, etc etc.

Sadly, an epidemic here as well, Larry…sometimes leading to suicide.

They are shocking statistics. Those who don’t think it is a problem, should look at the terrible teen suicides cases.
