Bully Trailer – This is sad, but uplifting at the same time.

Every now and then I see something that is so amazing it just brings a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye.  It makes me wonder how this world is the way it is.  How can people be the way they are?, and why do some feel they can treat others with contempt? I know there is plenty of good out there, but there’s plenty of bad too.

I have only seen this trailer, not the full movie, but it looks like something that everyone should see.  It’s heartbreaking, but I hope it’s the start of change.  This movie should be shown in schools, to teach the next generation about respect for others. I have absolutely no time for bullies (kids or adults) and there is never a valid excuse for bullying.  It’s cowardly and selfish. Kid bullies grow into adult bullies. That’s all I’ll say, I don’t want to force my opinion onto others.

  1. It’s amazing what the world can do, Steve. Thanks for sharing this trailer. You’re right, my eyes teared. Children truly are the keys to our future.. let us, as middle-grade/ YA writers, give them hope. Cheers!

    This morning I was cruising through Freshly Pressed, and this post made me say OMG SERIOUSLY? I found it interesting that the author used teenage girls as the reference for all things trivial and banal. Teenage girls, and boys for that matter, emulate what they see and hear all around them as they try desperately to navigate the confusing messages they are getting from adults; people they are supposed to trust! The author went on to quote Kipling, who I believe is one of the greatest writers of all times, saying…’Words–“the most powerful drug used by mankind,” according to Kipling–can change minds and alter behavior.’ Well, while that is true, an OMG at the top of my lungs is in order about the video posted by one of my favorite bloggers. (reblogged here) It should be Freshly Pressed as an outstanding example of just how true that Kipling quote really is. Watch it, and if it doesn’t move you and make you want to shout OMG at the top of your lungs, then I really don’t know what else to say. I know, that comes as a shock, doesn’t it?


    1. Obviously I don’t know how to “reblog” properly. As evidenced by my need to to edit my post several times. The Freshly Pressed post I am referring to is this http://acculturated.com/2012/08/23/the-regrettable-rise-of-omg/. AND your post, of course is what every person with a heartbeat needs to see. My heart was in the right place.


      1. Thanks Honie. This was one of those things that I just had to post. Thanks for reblogging.


      2. Steve, I’m so glad that you did. Of all the subjects worth writing about, this is one I take seriously and even though I botched the reblog by trying to add my own two cents, I think you did a good thing by sharing it. Thanks.
