The Blue Box at Arise 2 Write

I would really like to take this viral! Please stop by Arise 2 Write where you can read about a situation that I consider child abuse at a minimum and very possibly could be considered torture of a young boy by his school.

After hearing on the news last night about an 11 year old boy who hanged himself because he was teased and bullied relentlessly by his classmates with NO intervention by the school administration, I feel compelled to share this.

My hope is that perhaps this little boy and his family can not only take on the school system, but also get the help this child needs to move on with his life in a healthy and productive way. AND that the school system will be taken to task for allowing this kind of discipline to take place.

These folks need some intensive training and enlightening.

Thank you for speaking out with your loving heart for this boy, a child of God, and standing along side of our dear Sister-In-Christ Andrea. After praying, this prompted me to post this on my blog as well earlier this evening along with Andrea's request if prayer led me to do so. I have been receiving comments there from beautiful sisters in the Lord. Many prayers are being lifted up for this situation.

I am still crushed to the core myself about all of this...truly crushed. I can't even begin to imagine what this sweet boy is feeling as well as his parents. My prayers are fervently being said.

Hugs & Blessings,
