Karen Healey, the author of the most excellent Guardian of the Dead, has posted recently about her experiences of bullying, and what we as individuals can do about it. I found it a moving piece, which reflected some of my own experiences as well.
Karen’s blog is always interesting, often funny, sometimes moving, always smart. You should read her blog, and her books, anyway. But this blog especially – if you’ve ever been bullied, if you’ve never been bullied but you’ve seen it, if you’re a parent or a teacher or a sibling or just an interested bystander. Maybe we can all take her excellent advice and make the world a little kinder and a little stronger.
