Hear today’s Warm and Fuzzy here!
“A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them
the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece
of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it
up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and
look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they’
were sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the
paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those
scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is
what happens when a person bullies another, they may say they’re
sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the
children in the classroom told her the message hit home.
