Came across this quote as part of a story I was reading and it made me think about the current state of the world where bullying, especially cyber-bullying, is a pandemic of hate and torture of the most insidious kind. It attacks the heart, the soul and destroys those who need to be helped and protected against the morally, spiritually and emotionally empty.
Society as a whole is not at all social. Kids not even in their teens are driven to escape the only way they can see which is also the way which creates even more pain as it means that they have NO chance of ever being able to show just how wrong the scum bag bullies are about them. Lip service is paid to the media and no authority is wanting to take responsibility for their inaction which allowed the trauma to continue. I myself even as an adult suffered badly and I am a lucky one for I was able to see them for what they are and turn the tables. See into the emptiness of their souls and treat them like the nothing they ultimately are in the scheme of my life. That does drive them to even greater lengths to get to me but it is futile for I see it for what it is and will refuse to give them what they so desperately crave. Power over another's emotions.
Sadly many kids are unable to do so as it is a barrage combined with the natural need to be a part of things. To try and find your identity and place in society and fit in. Society is far from decent. People are neglecting the fact that humanity is made up if the word HUMAN. Lip service is paid but all the so-called education is futile when the ones committing this vile torture for their own amusement have no conscience at all and play the game until the next poor victim comes into their scopes.
