Bullying

I heard a story about some 5th grade boys surrounding a 3rd grader named Billy. Another 5th grade boy came up, put his arm around Billy and said, "Billy, come with me. I want to show you something" And he led Billy away. That's one of many nonviolent responses possible. Victims are often persons who are different and who are rejected. As Jesus reached out those in disfavor in "polite" society, so can Christian youth befriend victims of bullying and bring them into their group.
