Bullying And The Road To Violence

For years I have been discussing how Violence Is A Process And Not An Event. The issue of Bullying is certainly a part of that process. Everyday in America someone is seriously injured due to the process of disrespect that we commonly label Bullying. My concern is that we sometime hide behind a term that really does not expose it’s true impact. The term Bullying means something different today then 10 years ago. Some how we water down Victimization by creating labels. “He or she was not abused they were just Bullied”. This cultural denial leads to repeat acts of civil discord which in the end becomes Violent.
We can’t accept the path that leads to creating victims no matter how little or small the infliction. To deny the hurt is just to act as another Bystander.
