I don’t know what to say about bullies!
I am at a loss. That someone should be driven to take his life as a result of being bullied…
What can we do, what can we, as a community, do?
My first reaction is to rant and rave at the mother fucking bastards, but what does that do?
Their heads and hearts are obviously off!
Take the Michigan assistant district attorney, he looked as if butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth when Anderson Cooper interviewed him about his bullyblogging of 21 year-old Michigan University student,. He was very comfortable with his actions. What do you with someone like that? He is obviously not well.
In the meantime I pray someone intervenes before a tragedy happens.
And I just heard about Tyler Clementi, the young Rutgers University student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge a few days ago.
What happened to Tyler has left me speechless.
His roommate Ravi, and a female friend of the roommate, Molly Wei, thought it funny to film Clementi having sex and stream it live on twitter and I don’t know where else, for all the world to see it!
What are we missing here?
Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei have been arrested, a slap on the wrist, maybe a few years in prisons, in the meantime Tyler Clementi is dead!
And what about 13 year-old Asher Brown of Texas, bullied to death by his middle school peers?
A thirteen year-old who shoots himself because… because… because… the bullies teased him for being small, gay and Buddhist! And now Little Asher is dead.
The real question must be, why do they do it? Why do bullies bully? What is it that we are not addressing?
In the meantime there are parents who have lost their child, siblings without their siblings, friends who have lost their friends, and sentences to a lifetime of pain and sorrow that will never go away.
As a society we have to find out what we can do to make things better.
Community Love is one way and I hope that whoever is out there reading this, will join me trying to make a difference.
May those boys rest in peace and may their loved ones… I don’t even know what to say to the families, I myself go through hell every day! But life does continue, somehow day after day life goes on, like the waters of a River that never stops.
God, what a sad day – I am so tired
