Be a Part of the Solution Stop the Bullet

Bullying sad attempt at loftiness









Bottled up


Loose, lips

Leaving, loneliness













Stop the bleeding before it starts

Bullying is becoming an epidemic. The ill effects are now hitting every populations, starting as young as pre-school sometimes. These victims have limited resources to process both the consequences and the impact of its bullet. Bullying is altering our playgrounds. Are they a place for imaginary play or a maze through a living nightmare?

So, why do we do it? What does anyone accomplish by tearing down another person? Why can't we see we all have our part in bullying?

  • Do we say nothing, just stand by?
  • We know in our hearts we should speak up, but are thankful not to be the target?
  • Are we even aware that we are tormenting to begin with?
  • Can bullying be an overt action?
  • Can it be covert?
  • Maybe it’s a mean look or opinionated glare. A feeling left to go wild and poison so many allowing rapid growth? I suppose it depends on your bullet of choice.
  • Could it be a spark of our own inadequacy? Fearing we must take the attention off our own imperfections!
  • Did we want to stop potential damage after the fact?
  • Is it possible that once we release the bullet we wanted to jump in front of it before it landed on its target, but it was too late?
  • Often we plan to stop it and don't know how getting trapped in our own web. Writhing in pain as we can not untangle the vicious threads of our habitual banter.

Let's stop the bullet!

How about we try to be more aware of its sting? What if we pray together to make it an offense of the past?

How about putting a seatbelt on bullying before someone else gets hurt? We don’t want to lose anyone else to bullying and we don't want you to be its next victim.

What if instead of knocking someone down we help to pick someone up? How about we all work on treating others the way we should, with kindness and acceptance? Could we learn from our mistakes and hold one another accountable not with a judging eye, but rather a forgiving heart?

You may be the bully or you may be the target, but believe it or not in this life you are a sinner, so my guess is you’ve been both. We can change this, we can learn a new way. A better and more loving and honest way. We can learn to love as Christ loves us.

One day at a time with a clean slate. No matter what we have done, He forgives. He died for us so no one else has to. We have to keep learning to live like HIM.

Luke 6:31 Do to others as would have them do to you

      I really support your comments. Having worked with victims of domestic violence I know that bullying needs to be challenged to prevent it becoming normalized and escalating into a life pattern.

      A great exhortation. It does appear that bullying occurs from toddler to adult and how sad and senseless. I watch the dynamic of my 4 toddler granddaughters and at times these behaviors occur. I used to scold the bullying offender but discovered that by embracing the one being picked on and disagreeing with the negative statement before the both of them helps a lot. Most generally the one being picked on gains confidence that they don't need to take offense by anyone because they know someone is in there corner and oddly the one doing the offending wants to be a part of all the love going on and offers a genuine apology. I do explain to the offender that it isn't kind when all is said and done but it seems as if this method opens their ears.

      I really enjoyed your poetic acronyms for Bullying.

      Dear Joan King ~

      Wonderful comment and so true. it is so sad that kids are dealing with things so much earlier in life. I to am saddened that media inflates this problem and hence kids deal with issues so much sooner than in the past. I wish kids could be kids. Awareness is a good start to healing this problem but also people not tolerating it and standing up for one another would be good as well. Thanks again for the comment and God Bless

      I wonder if bullying is getting worse or that it is getting more attention today. Bullying as occurred from the beginning of time but with social media, the destructive nature of bullying has gained more attention which is a good thing. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Faith Reaper ~ It means so much to me that you commented so quickly. I am very passionate about this issue. I am a youth sponsor at our church and I so enjoy the young people we work with. Sadly I do here bullying stories from them and how badly it hurts both in schools and communities. I wanted to write for all of us, but hoped to send a message of hope to the kids. My son told me he thought it was a good message. I feel for kids today so much they need to endure, but as you know with God's Love and Strength all things are possible in Him. Blessings to you and enjoy your weekend:)

      Very profound to this serious issue of bullying, which is just getting so out of control in our youth today. It is very frightening to think about my grandchildren may experience such. Always in prayer about this issue. You have written a very clever write here (love the poem) and it should be shared, and I will do so. Voted up, awesome, interesting and useful

      God Bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
