The schools exacerbate the problem of bullying by their stance that all fighting is wrong.
The first time I came into contact with my wife was when I was in the 8th grade and she in the 7th. Her house had just burned down and a group of kids were picking on her because her clothes smelled like smoke. I didn’t know any of that at the time, all I knew is that a girl was getting picked on and that wasn’t right so I told her bullies (2) to stop it and when they didn’t I bitch slapped the leader and dared him to continue picking on the girl.
Schools should be in the business of promoting chivalry, not the notion that the state (or, educational system) will handle all your problems.
Notice in the interview Casey’s reaction when asked if he were a hero. I love his response and hope it gets more attention.
The world needs heroes.
