Words have power, more than we think we do.
Keaton Jones is a young man from Tennessee. His mother recently posted a video of her son crying over the bullying he received at school.
My heart breaks for this kid. Yes, kids can be cruel, but childhood bullying can leave scars long after we have left school.
Many adults may look at bullying as a mere rite of childhood. The truth is that is bullying hurts, more than some of us are willing to admit while we are being bullied. Bullying can lead to depression, lower self esteem, decreased academic achievement and worst of all, suicide.
I can only hope that justice is done for this young man and the bullies receive what they deserve. Hope is the key word here.
