I have really tried not to get too involved in the news the last couple of months. I feel like my soul was absorbed in all the bad news for the last, what, 20 years? And I seriously need a break from it. But I can't help but weep and get outraged (outraged is really too weak of a word for what I feel) when I hear and read these stories about kids committing suicide over being bullied. I say prosecute the offending bullies to the the nth-degree. They know the damage they are doing. The schools can't turn a blind eye to these situations. There has to be a solution outside of home schooling.
Tyler Clementi is thought to have committed suicide, days after video of him was secretly webcast on the Internet. Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi and another classmate, Molly Wei, have been charged in the case.
