When we think of bullies we think back to our high school years, and even though it was horrible when we went through it and we felt alone, and at the time, it was the only thing that consumed our minds. We would now probably look back on it as just part of growing up and it made us who we are today. But what was happening to us was not right then and it's still not right now. In this day and age it seems like the levels of violence and personal humiliation that some will go to has been taken to another level, like cyber bullying and things like that. Attacks are more personal and more random than ever. I spoke with a young man, 14 years old, who was recently the victim of a serious physical attack at the hands of another youth whom he didn't even know, and all over a new haircut? Now he wants to speak out on bullying, and not just about what happened to him but about bullying in general and how he personally advocates to bring a stop to bullying in his school and in his community.
