May I Redirect You?

Posted on

I was subbing today — first at the high school, and then at the middle school (it was a crazy day) and I overheard students at both schools talking about a local girl who took her own life because she felt she couldn’t endure the bullying she faced.

And then, I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Slambfriend, and saw that Sara has a series going right now about bullying.  She has some really excellent thoughts.  In fact, I feel like she took the thoughts out of my brain and put words to them — especially the second post.

Here is her first post in the series: Hurt People Hurt People 

Here is her second post in the series: Let Me Tell You Who You Are

Sara says she’ll probably have at least three posts in this series, so check her blog again later this week for more thoughts from her.

About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
