What do you do, when you sit everyday in silence, witnessing a tragedy in the making. you watch one boy, getting laughed at, getting mocked, being egged on until he does things he never wanted to do in the first place.
who do you tell? teachers sit back and watch, some laugh along, some pretend they don't see, some pay no attention. they don't want to deal with it. out higher school powers play videos, give lectures, etc.. It doesn't work, and I'm pretty sure they know this. So why don't they try to do something more?
Why? Because the ones who bully, the ones who are the people to blame, are people like the captain of the softball team. Star football players, straight A, "example" students. Some people see this, and no justice is served, because when punishment is given, those star students can't play, they can't show what our school is made of. But why would they want to?
Sometimes the places that are supposed to be our "safe" places. Our home away from home. The places filled with people that help us grow, learn, live, love, etc.. they really disgust me sometimes. From all this, things that happen when people let things go "unnoticed" are tragic. School shootings... suicides... and other violent acts come of this. AND the really amazing thing is how the people that let & cause these terrible things to happen are the ones who think hard, and just can't seem to realize why situations like this come about.
So, what would you do?
