ESL Holiday Lessons.com: Anti-Bullying Day:
"Bullying is one of the nastier, darker sides of human nature. We see it everywhere, from our early days at school to our place of work. What is it that makes bullies want to tease, hurt, humiliate and injure others? In many cases, people who are bullied take their own lives. It’s so sad this can happen in today’s society. But it does happen and it’s allowed to happen. Many terrible things happen in school – children are beaten every day. If this happened to an adult on the street, the bully would be called an attacker or mugger and would be arrested. In school it’s called “part of growing up”. The bully gets away with criminal assault; the bullied child suffers long-term physical or emotional damage."
