It seems everywhere you turn these days there’s a new discussion about how a group of conscientious high school students is starting an anti-bullying movement.
I guess it takes teenagers (whose brains are supposedly still developing) to tell us adults (whose brains are supposed to be fully developed) that picking on or singling out certain kids because of their looks, size, a disability or because they are more isolated than others, is not acceptable. Now school districts and governments are picking up on that sentiment and are developing structured programs to prevent bullying on school property and in cyberspace.
I came across this video on the subject from Forest Lawn High School in Calgary, Alberta. Unlike our politicians, these students manage to convey a serious message without speaking barely any words. Way to go Forest Lawn!
