Kickin’ It! Bullying is the Ugliest Thing


by Angel Rodriguez

I have many things on my mind that I can write about today. I have considered writing about how the military is continuing its attempts to criminalize Christians in favor of homosexuals. I considered writing about the circus that is Washington and all the ridiculous crap going on over there. Thank you for trying, Senator Ted Cruz. I also considered writing about that Maryville dirt bag rapist that got off (for now) because Grandpa is a politician.

First of all, how does a nine-year-old child even conceive the thoughts of suicide? A nine-year-old, a young kid so unhappy that he could successfully plan and execute his own death. First, I have a hard time understanding how a little kid even manages to think up the concept of suicide. The thought, putting myself in his shoes, is just heart wrenching! I cannot even begin to comprehend what this little man was experiencing and how bad he felt that led him to take this action. The thought of this child being so unhappy that he preferred to end his life rather than continue experiencing the torment he encountered daily is nauseating. Let me repeat this for you, he was nine years old, and he killed himself.

So now what? It goes without saying that I want those responsible for this held accountable on all levels. From the teachers who said, “You chose this school,” to the students and anyone one else that was negligent about this boy’s situation. However, this issue is bigger than this. It goes much deeper.

For those of you that don’t know, I am also a musician, this past weekend I performed at an event called “Bullying… We’re kickin it”.
