Bullies and Suicide

I've been thinking about the issue of bullying recently, having read too many stories of bullied children and young adults committing suicide. Some of the victims were gay, and some were perceived as outsiders for other reasons.

While I've been pondering the issue, others have spoken out. Suburban Chicken Farmer sent a link to the moving testimony of city councilman Joel Burns (caution: have tissues handy.)

Chris asks, "Why can't it be Better Now?"

And northTOMom describes her efforts to teach tolerance to her children.
