  •  Here's to all victims of bullying, (5+ / 0-)

    who end up taking their own lives, or who are merely constricted and made fearful, because of others' malice.

    For too long, this horrible practice has been accepted as "normal" and "kids will be kids."

    Finally, it is being called into question, and not a moment too soon, for Jardin Bell and for countless others.

    Thanks for the diary.

    It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
