I was invited by principal Padilla (Craver Middle School), along with a few other community people, to join teachers and administrators in participating in an anti-bullying training program funded by ESPN and Mountain Dew. One of the things that makes bullying hard to deal with is that a good many people see living in an environment that is at times harsh is necessary to prepare students for adulthood. After all, the adult world is full of adverse situations and who doesn’t want their child capable of coping with those challenges. Other people don’t really see any difference between bullying and plain old horse play or just being ‘picked on.’

There is a difference between bullying and “messing around” with your friends. In the simplest of terms, you don’t bully your friends because you have some respect and care about them. For the bully, those they bully are perceived as lacking the intrinsic value necessary to respect them. So, it is acceptable to the bully to commit repetitive acts which degrade others as a valid method of gaining notoriety or experiencing some form of pleasure – or so they think.
