Love and Tolerance

My beautiful wife wanted to share our feelings after learning from the news that another kid committed suicide because he was considered "different" and victim of constant bullying.

What's wrong with our society ?, why this has to happen ?

And don't blame the Internet. No doubt the advance in technology and communication services has enabled us to share (sometimes without our own knowledge) vasts arrays of information, but what is missing here is the role WE as parents have to play to transmit the correct values, morals and education to our kids, and teachers, counselors can't be missing from the equation.

As parents we ARE part of the solution, we CAN'T ignore or avoid the responsibility.

My son wrote a poem few years ago about how it feels being bullied ...
