Empathy

Kids will be kids. Boys will be boys. Teams will be teams.

Targets will be targets.

Bullies will be bullies.

I heard an earful today. About all of that.

And so.

Enough.

Stop.

Think.

It does not have to be. Just because it’s always been. And will always be. Because there is no other way.

There is another way.

Think. Feel. Know.

That the boy being bullied.

Is our brother.

That the boy being bullied.

Is our son.

That the girl being bullied.

Is our sister.

That the girl being bullied.

Is our daughter.

Just that thought.

Will help.

Maybe too. If you know. That the boy being bullied was my brother.

I get it.

And finally. I am ready to take a stand.
