Dealing With Cyber Bullies

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/6d/92/a0/6d92a0dc66fbb160fae37891658394d0.jpgFor the past few days, I’ve listened to stories of cyber bullying. One friend tells of a young girl, with Autism.  One day, she is asked “Would you like to go to the prom, with me?”

She accepted the date and they had a wonderful time; however, a tragedy occurred.  At one point,they are surrounded by a pack of wolves.

They thought it acceptable to harass and mock the young couple. To add insult, someone recorded it and posted it on the Internet.  It saddens my heart to hear such a story.

With the sadness, I felt a rising sense of anger.  It should not be this way! I could give out names; however, I am not going to go down such a dark path. How do I know?  I am no stranger to bullying.

A Lesser Human? Really?

Yesterday, I was enjoying a goofy YouTube video that is produced by two friends. The friends are known by their gaming name of BDoubleO and GenerikB. These men don’t just play a game; they put on a show. Their goal is to entertain kids and the young at heart; who simply want relatively clean entertainment.

I don’t think they’d intentionally hurt anyone. As I watched their latest antics, BDoubleO made a harmless joke. It was about people who have to wear glasses. “Am I really less human because I wear glasses?”, I thought. Continue reading

How so? Continue reading

Overcoming Depression

Last week, I was reading a post on Paul Soares Jr.’s website. The writer was thanking Paul for saving his life. The young man was suffering from depression. Would you have thought that an entertaining storyteller could help someone? How about a YouTube video centering on a game, with same storyteller? Here is the young man’s story, if interested.

While reading his story and the helpful comments, I felt a need to share my story of overcoming depression. I would love to say, “A magic wand was waved over me and presto!” Alas, this is not the case. Nevertheless, God, the Father was faithful in seeing me through it. Continue reading
