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.
