Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced. Sad day.
But more importantly, the bullies involved in the Karen Klein bus incident have been suspended for a year! For those of you who don’t know, Karen Klein was a school bus monitor who was recently harassed by four 7th grade boys while on the job. The four boys would call her names, make threats at her, and tease her relentlessly. Video footage was shot of the incident and almost instantly went viral. From this, many rallied behind Klein and contributed to a fundraiser that amounted to over $650,000 to give Karen Klein the vacation that she deserved.
I am thrilled that action from the school was taken because I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a little bit tired of all these misconceptions surrounding bullying. There are those that say it doesn’t happen in school and that kids don’t tease each other, but no – there is proof now that it does happen and that kids are not only teasing each other, but bullying adults as well. Hate to break the news to you this way, but even after school is over, the bullying never really ends. It can happen in a workplace too.
Kudos to Karen Klein for being absolutely amazing.
