If it weren't for Phoebe Prince, then 44 states of America wouldn't have passed legislature which prohibited bullying online and offline.

How many of us are familiar with this I wonder? Bullying is a horrid torture for anyone to endure.  It breaks down the spirit and fractures the psyche - in the worst cases the psyche actually shatters resulting in bizarre thoughts which ultimately result in the unneeded death of someone and the seemingly eternal pain and sadness of their family. 

However, what would you do if could stop such sadness? What would you do if you saw a fellow human being suffering under such harshness.  Would you stand up for them? Would you listen to them, offer them solace?

It's an unfortunate truth that many of us have witnessed others being harassed by others and we just wander on, turning a deaf ear.  It is an even more unfortunate truth that many of us who have done this have heard about the suicides of such victims.  For those with a conscience, they are wracked with guilt, constantly questioning themselves: "Could I have done something to save them?"  Sadly, such a question could never be answered.

So, the next time you see someone being bullied please do not hesitate in helping in them as you could very well be saving their life.

We could all do with a little help from those around us every now and again.  I was just wondering how many of us here at Care2 would actually help someone in need.

 

Please take this poll.


If you answered "b" most often to this poll then please think about joining my Care2 group "The Blue Rose Foundation" which I set up in order to provide counselling and help to bully victims of all ages and walks of life.

Thank You.

It's a sad fact that a lot of us believe that we are alone when in fact we are not.  We are so overcome by sadness and despair our mind becomes clouded and as a result we feel isolated.  We may not feel like talking as we may feel stupid and that no one would want to talk to us.  However, that is not always the case.  Try and talk to those close to you, despite how stupid you may feel, you never know, you may feel better and realize that there are those who are there for you.

I plan on creating leaflets so I can post/email them around and try to get others to notice the violence in the world and stop it.  Only, I have no idea how to do this.  Any thoughts?

We are all familiar with war in some way: whether it is because we have experienced it first hand, have a relative who has experienced it or we have seen pictures or other evidence of its existence. 

War is a terrible thing, despite many people claiming they fight to make the world a better place, war only produces two things: destruction and death.  It spreads sadness as if it were a disease and causes unlimited pain.  This is the worst type of strife and violence.

Several of us have heard of the adage: "If you wish for peace, prepare for war."  However, is this the only way for us to attain peace and non-violence in our world?

Do you think war is necessary?

This is one of the factors of life which haunts and crushes many people.

Imagine going to school every morning with no one to talk to; wandering around school - going from class to class with no one to talk to and imagine having no one to talk to during break and lunch and having to spend your time in the library all alone - to avoid bullies.  Then at the end of the day you go home all alone and spend most of the evening watching tv due to not having any friends and your parents being at work or at the pub.

 

The above described my high school years pretty well.

It seems we can never get enough peace to ourselves and as a result get stressed easily....

This poll is to try and see how many of Care2 users are actually prone to outbursts of anger and violence.
