I happened to catch this story on Time Warner Cable News.  it's just another example of bullying gone awry in this country, and we have to start paying closer attention!  Check out this student's first hand account

According to Newschannel13.com some students from Hudson Falls BOCES have produced a very touching video that shows how bullying has affected their very existence, and no words are spoken.  They each  hold up a card with a word written on it from the following sentence - "You don't know what it's like to be me" .  I think they're right!  It must be even MORE tough when you are a student with special circumstances.   Again, if you click here you can view it.  It's very well done, and definitely brings the point home.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students who worked on this project.  It takes a lot of guts to stand up to behavior like this, and you should be proud

See these kids below? .

They want to tell the world that bullying's bad.  In fact, all of these classes in 5 counties  joined together and produced a song showing their disapproval in association with my Reading, Writing and Rhyming program.    Perhaps it deserves a second listen
