On Bullying

Amanda Todd. The latest name in suicides as a result of bullying. There will be more. The grief and soul searching will again be poured out for the next victim. The unanswerable questions will again be asked. I am hopeful that some progress has been made and that ultimately we as a society will be able to eliminate the consequences of bullying.

While programs are being launched and anti-bullying propaganda is being perfected, I have yet to hear anything about attempting to find the root cause of the bullying and how to find the bullies before they start using it as an outlet for their own inadequacies.
