One thought on “THE LESSON I HAVE LEARNED THIS WEEK

  1. This is from Carolyn Hax, a advice columnist from the Washington Post that I respect (originally posted on Sept 8, 2013):

    “The key to any bullying situation isn’t the bully or the victim. It’s the witness. When witnesses stand up, step in, say — in word or deed — that nastiness won’t be tolerated in this crowd, the bullying stops.

    “When witnesses cower or shrug, or when no one supports the brave ones who do not step in, then the bully gets a clear message: ‘Carry on.’ Declining to engage is enable [the bully.]”

    Thank you for stepping in, engaging with and refusing to enable bullies this week, Risa.
