I never did like Willie Nelson, but I have to say that it’s good to be on the way back to Africa.  We’re in the Atlanta airport as I type this, waiting for our flight.  We had a good visit with Susan’s uncle and cousins on the way out.  The last four months have been fun, seeing family and friends and getting back in touch with our churches in Omaha.  But it feels good to be on the way back to Africa. Back to work, back to school, back to the critters, back to friends over there.

    Lauren You are so right. My entire life ive been pkeicd on and put down. The kids who pkeicd on me where told no and never once got in trouble for their actions. Instead i was the one who got in trouble. I was always told i was the blame for the problem. Now a days with such techonologies like computers, iphones its each to lose touch with easier then ever to post whatever you want on the internet. It’s easy to post whatever you want on the internet now and come out completely scot free. No mess so to speak. Your completely right in saying that it isnt right at all and i agree it shouldnt be. People can bully others on the internet and get away with it, people can go on twitter or facebook and get on others accounts hack in nad put up nasty things, hurtful things. It teaches kids nothing. It doesn’t teach kids that it’s wrong. It should. When kids go on the internet and see their favorite celebrity whoever that is and see them being bullied whoeever it is , whatever the case may be hten they think it is okay. When the truth is is its not okay. There should be consequences for their actions, more hten just suspension from a site for a day or lose priviliges on the site, i mean real consequences. Kids need to learn that cyber bulling really affects people and that even if you cant see the person that there is a person on the other side of the screen reading their message. People think that just because you cannot see the person and see their reaction as they read their message that it does not exist. That it doesnt affect the person. I heard of a story once on the news of a girl who was on myspace, she was talking to this guy, who she met on myspace and she liked. She talked to him and he started being mean to her. Then he got meaner and meaner. He started bullying her and this girl felt so upset she hung herself my a rope in her closet. Later the parents of hte girl found out the boy was actually a girls parents who that girl went to school with. That they were pretending to be that boy. The parents i dont remember if they got charged or not. All i know is that cyber bullying does have serious consequences. Weither or not people are aware of it.
