Words that Scar
From the blog of Alicia Waldner (www.aliciawaldner.com)
It hurt. It stung so bad that no pill could ease the pain. It’s crazy how they didn’t even touch me and yet I was bleeding. Was I just that fragile? Or were their words just that powerful?

Lowell Levine, the founder and president of the nationally recognized Stop Bullying Now Foundation in North Palm Beach, said bullying is now considered the worst epidemic in the country, with millions of children reportedly being bullied each year.
“The most important point that we can instruct all children is that if they are being bullied or know of someone being bullied, to address the problem with an adult as soon as possible, whether it’s a teacher, guidance counselor, principal or a parent,” said Levine, who works with schools and lectures at local venues to help eradicate bullying.
Levine, a professional motivational speaker, has helped many parents and children.
“Our education to the adults of children K-12 is vital – very vital,” Levine said. “When we teach parents everything about bullying, it helps their child. Our theme is working but more resources are needed to get the message out to everyone who has a child in K-12. The more the message is delivered, the bullying problem will see a decline.”
