*** "Is that nice?" ***
Last week, I decided to take a small stand against bullying and abusing others. It was uncomfortable and I was nervous there would be repercussions from the parents; but I was inspired by the countless heroes who have stood up and refused to stand by when they saw others being victimized in the street, on playgrounds, in the alleys, or behind dumpsters.
I asked some kids I saw taunting other kids in a public place, none of which I knew, "Is that nice?" It stopped them in their tracks and it drew their parents' attention toward their behavior. Maybe the next time they consider bullying another child they will think of my gentle reminder and think twice.
