    Kindness Above Malice

    Just how many dead teenagers, driven to end their own lives, is it going to take for adults to stand up and say, What the hell is going on? There was a time when the words "Free to Be" embodied a hope that whatever a kid was, was good enough. But "freedom" doesn't describe the world of this generation. Or of their parents. One of those parents wrote to me on my Facebook page.

    "Hi, Marlo," wrote Kevin Jacobsen of New York. "Our son Kameron was bullied relentlessly and committed suicide on January 18th. He was 14. In lieu of flowers, we asked for donations to go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, my mom's favorite for decades. I know you're busy, but just wondering if you could take a look at our son. We have nothing else to lose."

    He then posted the link to a website he'd built to honor his son, called KindnessAboveMalice.org. I logged on, but could barely look at the child's face. He was beautiful.

    Kindness Above Malice is dedicated to affirming students that have raised the self esteem of another person, thereby preventing the injury that results from bullying. We recognize that protecting and nurturing a high self esteem is the key to unlocking the motivating factors behind bullying for both the bully and the victimů

    It is kind of a shame that an organization even has to exist to reward people for not bullying, for being kind instead...
    Just my opinion, of course.
