A few weeks ...maybe a month or two ago...there was a thread here about an American girl who immigrated with her parents from Ireland who committed suicide after being bullied.
Since then, I've also become aware of six or seven gay teens commiting suicide because of being bullied...there's an awareness meme going around Live Journal about it.
Then there was a post here about the man who was arrested for yelling at some kids who had been bullying his young daughter relentlessly.
Now I just saw this: Ohio's Mentor High School Under Scrutiny After Spate of Suicides
Can someone tell me what the hell is going on? Why is our society so broken?
This is part of the reason I don't want to teach. I don't want to be anywhere near the little monsters and their enabling parents.
