Sorry I haven't been on in awhile, I have been crazy busy with the book. Writing a book is very challenging, but It gives me a sense of accomplishment.
Anywho, since it's Cinco De Mayo, I thought I would put up a special post today. I was watching a movie the other day that got me thinking. It's called Bang Bang You're Dead. It's about a high school student who is constantly bullied, and begins to struggle for freedom, making bomb threats and attempts suicide on occasions. Now this movie overexaggerated the level bullying is taken to in most schools, but to me it almost hit dead-on to how it affects us. It explains how much school causes you more pain then it has ever helped anyone, how those kids we labeled "emo" and write as losers are turned that way from the very same people. Kids don't realize it, but we are the most naturally cruel people in the world most the time. But adults must realize that they aren't far off in any sense. Kids are the ones who plant the seed, but the adults in one's life are the ones who set things off. I mean, haven't it ever occured to anyone that there are more boy shooters then girls? Because most girls always have friends they can turn to, but boys have a harder because we are always expected to be tough, we are raised not to get overly emotional about stuff, that when stuff happens to be a man, that certain passions are considered girly and that we have to like certain things. Fathers take us through our entire life saying "BE A MAN!", "STOP CRYING, BE TOUGHER!". You tell us a man isn't supposed to cry, they should take all the pains in life and deal with it, not given the ability to cope with our rage. No guys don't usually have the emotion range that girls, we can take things easier than them as well, but when is it enough? "Everyone has to deal with a little teasing" but not everyone takes it nor receieves the same amount in the same way. If you have never lived someone's life, how can you know how they truly feel? I'll pick this topic up next week, but I always want you to remember, when you tell someone that they need to tough it up, nothing is tougher then a gun and a bomb.
