11-Year-Old Caine Smith Inspires with Anti-Bullying Campaign [VIDEO]
Because of avenues like social media and texting, bullying has become an epidemic in this country. The psychological damage inflicted on kids today is taking a horrible toll. Hopefully, more kids like Caine Smith will emerge.
He’s 11-years-old and there’s absolutely nothing about his life or anyone else’s, for that matter, that merits the mistreatment he endures on a regular basis. As he says, not a day goes by that he isn’t picked on or called names.
Bullying today is at a whole other level from when I was a kid. Back then, there were no mind games involved or desires to ostracize. It was just meanness. Also, when I was a kid, parents weren’t looking the other way as some do today. I can recall a number of occasions where if a kid was picking on another kid, he’d get in trouble…and on two fronts–at school and at home.
It doesn’t seem to be happening like that anymore, so it’s good there’s a kid like Caine Smith–and hopefully more like him–who are unwilling to tolerate it and who ARE willing to stand up and do something about it.
The kid’s courageous and strong and people of ALL ages could learn a lot from him.
