Kids get pointers on bullying from election
Thu., Aug. 4, 2016
Caroline McCain, Republican granddaughter of U.S. Senator John McCain of Arizona, recently announced that she would be voting for Hillary Clinton because of Donald Trump’s inflammatory statements about her grandfather and went on to describe Trump as “a coward who has never faced danger in his life, an insecure brat who shirked duty for comfort, and a man who is wholly unfit to serve as commander-in chief.”
McCain went on to describe Trump as a racist, sexist and demagogue. As a member in good standing, I don’t see how a fellow member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars could vote for him, given his remarks about U.S. Senator John McCain.
As a parent, with all of the bullying that goes on in high schools, my main concern, is that since the bullies and the bullied have the summer off from each other, what can the two groups look forward to next month, when school starts again? Have young people been watching T.V. and getting some pointers on how to publicly humiliate and degrade others, or possibly learning more about how we, as a nation, can be stronger if we work together, valuing and honoring, with respect, the dignity of all peoples?
