What has this world come to?

I just watched the circulating video of Karen Klein, a bus monitor, who was bullied to tears by 12 year old students for 10 WHOLE MINUTES. Firstly, I’m appalled that kids are not only bullying kids, but now adults?!

The widow and grandmother of eight just lost her son to suicide. One kid on the video said “But you don’t have a family because they all killed themselves because they didn’t want to be near you.” Horrible.

The verbal attack went viral and was picked up by an online fundraising group and in their hopes to raise a modest $5,000 to send Karen on a much needed vacation, they raised over $140,000 and counting!

This video is heartbreaking. Parents, teach your kids of the dangers of bullying. Kids, you have to give respect to get respect.
