Let me begin with saying how people don't want their kids bullying or even being bullied. Now, where do you think they learn to become these bullies. I'm going to use a prime example I see happen just about everyday. FACEBOOK. We see more bullies there then in reality. Why? Because the fear of retaliation is gone, we can hide behind the keyboard. I will narrow it down a bit. On facebook I'm sure you have seen the military hatred posts (like in the picture below). Yes she said mean things doesn't mean we have to also. Maybe she just truly doesn't understand the military life. Being a military brat is completely different than being a military spouse. Or being a civilian child and then marry into the military now that will change your outlook completely... But today the post hit me hard:
Well the person who reposted this continued to call her a piece of shit. And that got me thinking:
I understand how angry that post may make you. It makes me angry as well. But did you ever stop to think it was another hoax. Or even if it isn't, she does have her right to freedom of speech. We don't have to agree with her But it doesn't mean we have to go around and blast her, calling her names and what not. I mean for those of you who have kids, you don't want them being the bully, correct? Now, I'm not saying you do this, I'm saying it happens. If you are going to sit here and disrespect someone for their opinion, don't get mad when you are the one disrespected. Or if your kid becomes the bully you don't want them to be. Who do you think they learn it from. We can't expect them not to do something we do.
What happened to the golden rule: "Do onto others as you wish others to do onto you."
Be a role model.
