As a person who has struggled with weight issues my entire life, I can honestly say the pain of bullying never goes away. I won’t bore anyone with the gory details, but the memories can still bring me to tears.

And then I find a story like this and the sorrow I feel for this family is palpable. Children are cruel creatures. But do they come by it naturally? I don’t believe so. That kind of behavior is learned, pure and simple.

Whether through prejudice or ignorance on a parent’s part, generations in the making, or passed along on a school bus; it is an insidious education that takes root quickly and spreads throughout civilization with abandon.

Bullying will always be a societal issue in my opinion, because it has a pervasive presence in every facet of life, from politics to the playground.

I hope someone helps these loving siblings. Maybe Santa will.
