Bullying Will Never Be Solved

This week in class we have been discussing Martin Luther's Reformation as part of our study of the Renaissance time period. Our focus is on how Luther went about spreading his message and the passion he had for his beliefs. As a kind of closure activity today, I asked the students to write a little bit about what they would be passionate enough about to start a revolution over. Students wrote about varying things and hefty majority wrote about bullying. One student's writing stuck out to me and I am sharing it below.

I am not sure why this struck a chord with me but it did. Is she right? Will this issue never be solved? I hope for her sake and for the sake of all children she is wrong but I have to wonder how many kids feel the same way...
