October is home to a lot of causes, Breast Cancer Awareness, National Reading Group Month, Cookie Month, Diabetes month and list goes on. However, I would like to shed light on National Bullying Prevention Month. With everything that is going on in the political landscape and in schools, one thing is evident and that is bullying extends far beyond the playground and middle school. It appears as if bullying has ramped up in adults. I see it all the time, parents do it while sitting in the bleachers at sporting events, its done within social circles heck, some people deal with it at home. The point is, it's awfully gross to continue such childish behavior well into adulthood. As adults, we should have the competency to dismiss the likings of such behaviors.
The #MeToo movement has shown that bullying not only exits off the playground but heavily in the workplace, in Hollywood, on Capitol Hill and definately on the world wide web.
