No world peace amongst modern day bullies...
I read with interest in our local newspaper; Lisa Ann Capozzi's front page article on bullying. "The bullying effect."
She mentions the many forms of student bullying, however bullying is prominent for adults too.
One of the major forms of modern day bullying are comment boards that are available in almost every major periodical and even on Facebook.
Look at most of the comments to stories and even to the letters to editors, most comments are very Venomous towards the writer.
Check out the Facebook pages of any professional sports team or TV show and most comments are hateful.
Check out the editorial page in your local newspaper and forum pages. The comments are bound to be mean spirited, degrading and negative.
How can we ever expect world peace when we cannot even respect differing opinions, even on a local level?
Is this not the modern day bully?
Looking forward to all the upcoming venom and hateful comments. It amazes me that the human race is still around.
