OK~ What a way to start my day. I turn on the CBS Morning Show and a clip is rolling with a boy getting beat up on a school bus. Now, I can't imagine the horror the "innocent" kids felt, and I can honestly say I was angry when I saw several kids cheering the fight on. Now, my 9th Grader does ride the school bus daily and I can honestly say that I am confident that he would defend himself if necessary. This whole society we live in- where these rude remarks towards each other, bullying in schools, and general acceptance of so many things that are wrong- NEEDS TO STOP! When will it stop? I honestly don't know. Kudos to the young man that stood up to the bully and stopped the beating. Now, a representative from the school district was also interviewed and he said the bus driver has been questioned. I'm sure many may ask, "Why didn't he stop the bus?" Well, think about it- logistically, it is probably not possible to just, "Stop the Bus!" Food for thought for the day- be nice to someone today and see if you like the response you get! 99% of the time this does work. But, I can honestly say I had to call a customer from my part time job yesterday. She let me know that my call was not necessary and she knew where things stood. Whatever.........She had just questioned some things a few hours before, and I had answers. People need to wake up! A little respect goes a long way. After all, it's all in a Mom's Day, Right?
