Bullying

Last night I attended a showing of the documentary, Bully.  It was playing at the Clearview Cinema on W.23rd and 8th Avenue.  While I was waiting for my friends to arrive, I heard the ticket seller say that a whole faculty from a high school attended an earlier showing.  I was encouraged.

During the movie, I experienced a range of emotions.  I cried for the children who experienced physical and verbal abuse.  I felt frustration and anger at the administrators for their lack of insight or lack of knowledge of how to stop the bullying happening in their schools.  I was also proud of the parents who started, Stand for the Silent.
