Is there something wrong with the world.

We have no limits, we use things till we destroy them, we think ours lives superior to the other species around us.

Today in my Religious Education class (I go to a catholic school, which has actually beaten the catholic outta me) there is a boy named James, who is a small, skinny, weedy thing. He is one of the smartest people I know. But he is bullied relentlessly. And any time he makes a stand, the beat him again and again.

Today as our teacher left us alone for a few minutes, he tried to defend himself. But he was beaten to the floor by another boy he then kicked him and kicked him and kicked him till he bled. It was sickening, disgusting and sickening. Once he laid off me and the rest of the girls of the class ran to pick him up and take him to first aid. And now we are at the brunt of the bullies fury.

What is happening to the world, when a boy like that can be abused by someone who is no better, no smarter, no anything than him. Afterwards several of us, including me were in tears, how come someone so innocent can have something that evil done to him. They hurt him pretty bad, and not just on the outside.

What bothers me most, is why did we wait till it was over before helping.

Are we afraid of the repercussions? Are we unwilling to be beaten ourselves? Are we truly that cowardly? Or just smart enough to make thing the hurt of one instead of two?

What is happening to the world?
