A shout out to 9News’ Kirk Montgomery, who had the courage to record an anti-bullying PSA based on his own experience as a teen:

Kudos Kirk! While it breaks my heart to see what kids are going through, I’m so glad to see people start to stand up and take a stand to protect them from unnecessary bullying and ridicule.

Kirk,

My daughter posted this on her Facebook page and I thought I’d pass it along. Not sure if it’s true but, it certainly presents an interesting approach to seeing the effects.
Thought you might be able to use it.

Here is something the school might want to teach the kids …

A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying. She gave them the following exercise to perform: She had the children take a piece of paper, told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was… She then ……………told them to tell it they were sorry.

Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind; that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child. They may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever.

The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her that the message hit home…
