Part One- Bullying Series

Bullying has been around since the second generation of life on earth. According to the Biblical story, Adam & Eve’s son, Cain, squabbled with his brother, Able, and eventually killed him. True, most bullying does not go as far as someone killing another person, however it can have severe and lasting psychological and physical implications on its victims and damages society as a whole.

Bullying & Suicide

Part Three- Bullying Series

At age thirteen, Ryan Halligan was trying to fit in with his peers but his tall, lanky frame and previous academic difficulty made assimilation difficult. He had also been experiencing bullying for the past three years. Although his parents knew of the situation and had provided Ryan with professional counseling they never approached the school or formally notified the staff of the ongoing bullying despite the fact that on at least one occasion the bullying had resulted in a fight. Ryan opposed filing a complaint because he felt it would make the situation worse.
