Almost everyone has a story. That moment when we were bullied, or that entire school year, has stayed with us for a lifetime. Acutely memorable. Painfully timeless. Every year, the U.S. Dept. of Education estimates 13 million American kids are bullied. If you extrapolate that number, year after year, decade after decade, that means hundreds of millions of people.
The writer Lee Hirsh puts bullying in very stark terms in today’s Huff Post article and the numbers are staggering. But is bullying getting worse or is it just that there is more of a spotlight on it now? I’m not sure of the answer myself. Tell me what you think.
