    Thanks, Citizen Tom. I loved this lesson for the children.

    I don’t know how much children would learn from that post, but it certainly struck a chord with me. As a military brat, I spent much of my childhood as the new kid in school. So I was bullied and I learned to bully.

      Aw, Tom. I was a wallflower and was bullied in gradeschool. It would be nice if children today would learn not to bully out of concern for their fellow “man.” But, we know that things will get worse and worse in these last days.

        Since stories like “Cinderella” and “The Ugly Duckling” are popular, I suspect being bullied is a common experience. Some say that what we survive makes us stronger. I doubt scars and tears do that, but they make us wiser and more compassionate.

        Are these the last days? I don’t know. I have heard preachers I respect speculate and suggest that think it likely, but they admit they don’t know.

        Are these the last days of the United States? Again I don’t know, but I think have begun to understand what must of been like during the last days of the Roman republic. After Caesar rose to power, I would imagine bullying became more acceptable.
