It's been a while since I cried this much and this long for us as a species.



As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Oh I know, I saw this earlier this week. Breaks my heart, those little shits! I sure hope I raise my children better than that. I hope these kids get a lesson in humanity that changes them for the better, too.

Did you know this?

Kids are no longer taught respect for their elders, or for other people in general.

Basic decency isn't something that kids can relate to who are from the everyone gets a trophy generation. Parents that think their little angels are perfect don't seem to think they need to learn how to behave like decent human beings...it's a generation of bullies and the parents need a damn spanking.

I have one granddaughter that I can't stand to be around, she is just a spoiled miserable brat and has been told by her parents that she doesn't even need to follow a few simple rules in my house. The other two (different mother) have great manners and know that their mom means it when she tells them to behave.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Hope maybe, but the teaching should have begun much earlier.

Absolutely disgusting. I know that one person can't, nor should, apologize on the behalf of his peers.... But....

I apologize on behalf of my generation. This is utterly, and morally, unacceptable.

I feel compelled to write to this woman and give her my thoughts and comfort. I truly despise immoral behaviors.

Just fucking unbelieveable.

There's always hope. If my kid was involved I'd make them watch it over and over again while I watched until I was confident they appreciated the difference between being fucking funny and being a goddam fucking prick.

To be honest, I do not think it's a generational thing. I just think the world is smaller. Bullying has happened since forever ago. We know about this because of technology and our 'smaller' world, and we can call people on shit like this. I know many, MANY outstanding young people whom I am proud will be our future generation.

This incident IS heart breaking and wrong.

I'm crying because we are still capable of that as a species. ... Time to evolve. ... Time to die.

They must've thought that once they were on the bus nobody could punish them.

But then, the public went postal on them. It shows that it pays to "Be excellent to each other." - Bill and Ted lol

Take heart. We are amazing human beings and this lady has received enough money from the public to do something awesome.
