October is Bullying Awareness Month

Okay, I did state in a few blog posts before, that there are many things going on this month and I would probably forget something ---- well I did!  October is Bullying Awareness Month.  Okay, you're right a "biggie" to have forgotten --- I agree, so I am here to offer a peace offering - yes a little late but an offering anyway.

I am not going to try and define bullying, I will leave it up to you to check out the sites that I have listed below, suffice it to say that it is a growing issue and one everyone needs to be aware of bullying in all its forms, the bully and the victim.

I encourage you to take the time to at least look at one of the sites below, and while I have offered only a few, a Google search will lead you to many more.
