I think it is horrible the way kids treat other in school now. Children physically, emotionally and mentally bully other children all the time.

Smart phones and social media like Facebook have given bulled another weapon to use called "cyber bullying" on top of it all. Kids pick on other kids about what they wear, where they live, what their hair looks like and even about what kind of cell phone they have. Some of this is just brutal and we have all seen the horrible violent children fighting videos on YouTube that turn my stomach. Enough is enough.

When I saw the statistics and realized that 15% of all school abscences are from children who saty home because they're afraid of bullies at school it made me mad. Where are the parents? Who is teaching these kids right from wrong? Why can't kids just go to school and learn, without being in fear of other kids?

Townsqaure Media, the parent company of Today's Country 1077 'GNA realized that the you have to inform people in order to make a difference.
