Some people stand by and watch bullying and people who bully love to have an audience. Those who laugh when someone is being harassed or picked on may as well be doing the bullying themselves as their laughter supports the bully. Others may see the bullying and disapprove of it but do nothing about it.
- Everyday people witness an act or have intimate knowledge that someone is being harmed yet they do nothing about it. In recent headlines a woman in Cleveland Ohio was abducted and later found murdered in a field a few blocks from her home.
- The family had knowledge that she was in an abusive relationship and had a drug problem yet for three years they never said a word .
- no one has been charged in the case, you can’t help but wonder–if her family spoke up and notified police of the abuse or drug issue, would she still be alive .
“Society no longer holds the “it takes a village to raise a child” mentality; instead more people have the “mind your business and keep to yourself” mindset.”
