Who will stop the bullies?

I can remember the Bullies that picked on me when I was younger. The constant taunting and ridiculed showered on me by my tormentors. The sad thing is that all of this can be prevented and it really starts at home with the parent being the first person to apply discipline and moral support to the one who lashes out on the rest of society. Parents need to be more involved with their kids. That day seems to be passing as more and more children are overwhelmed by other influences of this world other then their parents. They attached themselves to celebrities, musicians, drugs or any other thing that deny God, but makes them feel like they are loved, wanted and appreciated. Parents stand up for your children before its too late. Proverbs 22:6 -” Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”. How true do these words ring true. How sad that we do nothing to help our children as we watch  them become faithless in their love for God

Common Sense in an uncommon world

A brave teacher, Michael Landsberry, tried to prevent the deaths of students in his classroom in Nevada when a 12 year-old boy shot and killed him and wounded two students. The seventh-grade shooter used his parent‘s 9mm semi-automatic handgun. Classmates said the shooter had been bullied by some at the school.

When I taught fifth-grade students, there was always a boy the others seem to pick on. Every time I caught anyone bullying another student, I would lecture them before dishing out the punishment. The conversation went like this:

Me: “Why are you picking on this student?

Bully: “I don’t know. Because I can, I guess.

Me: “Are you ready to die?”

Bully: “No.”

Me: “No ma’am. Haven’t you heard about the children who get bullied until they can’t take it anymore and come to school with a gun, bent upon wiping out the school bullies?”
