Another famous blogger besides myself, Perez Hilton, blogged a lot yesterday about the bullying going on in schools and the suicides to follow (especially by gay teens). The past year there was a number of kids from Massachusetts to take their lives because of bullying, and it just makes me sick. I know I am no saint, by any means, but one of the most important lessons my parents taught me was never to mean, always invite everyone in the class to a birthday party, and make sure no one is sitting alone. That can not be stressed enough. If my children are bullies, I will fucking kill them, I will not stand for that. Being intolerant is being ignorant, and kids should not feel tortured when they go to school everyday. It all makes me cringe, hopefully some day parents and schools will teach children to be more accepting of others, but then again, people high up on the ladder aren't too accepting either. (I'm trying to stay the least political I can here).
It takes to much effort to be mean. I know I have my days, but it is so unnecessary to be a bitchy and negative person, no one likes those people.
Anyway, that is my rant for the day. I encourage everyone to wave to strangers on the road. It's not always for a reaction, but most of the time...
That is all.
