Welcome to Dreams, Schemes, and Bento Themes. Today, Bento Bloggers & Friends are taking a stand by doing an Anti-Bulling Hop. In the recent months, stories have run rampant in the media about children getting bullied. I think this topic hits home for many of us. I am sure most of us have had a child or been that child that has come home in tears because someone said or did something ugly to them. There are children that hear these things day in an day out…multiple times a day…by multiple people. It breaks my heart that people can be so mean and vicious to one another. Bullying doesn’t come only in the the form of physical violence. It is name-calling, public shaming, threats of harm, encouraging suicide, hate texts, and the list goes on. These are all things that kids are hearing every single day, and sadly enough, many of them start to believe that these things are true. And these same kids often take their lives because the pain and ridicule are too much to bear. This needs to STOP! People need to be held accountable for their actions and their words. Let’s face it…words do HURT!
