Bus Monitor Horror

I saw the video a few times and still cannot believe what I saw.  In the video, a bunch of kids are bullying a 68 year old lady bringing her to tears.

I thank my parents for raising me to respect my elders.  If I were to behave as those kids back in the day when I was younger, my parents would have beaten me into the future...

In case you are not up to date, Karen Klein, a bus monitor was harassed and bullied by students while on a bus.  The kids made fun of her weight, her looks and even touched her arms in an attempt to mock her.  They called her names, used foul language.. it is just disgusting.

The youth are becoming more and more desensitized.  They are becoming more and more callous and immoral.  Respect seems to be something foreign.  The kids who bullied Mrs. Klein must be mentally unstable.  They need to be evaluated by a psychologist.  There is obviously something deeply wrong with them.  Outrage has gone viral on the internet.  The kids have even received death threats.

I feel for Mrs. Klein and applaud her for keeping her cool.  Moreover, she refused to press charges and instead wants the kids to be grounded for the summer so they can think about what they did.

This story despite being so evil has showed good things as well.  A young man named Max Sidorov began a campaign to raise money for Mrs. Klein.  To date, he has raised over $300,000 since this blog was written.
Parents please take this story and show it to your kids.  Teach them to respect their elders and their peers.  Teach them to act with civility even when they are upset.

“You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.  Leviticus 19:32
