Bullying: in light of the recent NFL case.

Having been bullied excessively when I was younger I can identify with the anti-bullying stance and movement that is currently moving through the world. And as a bullied person I am sympathetic to the plight of anyone who is bullied… but I’m a bit torn in my reaction to the NFL scandal about a bullied player. Bullying is a sign of supreme immaturity and it’s wrong no matter who’s doing it. It’s wrong if you’re a law enforcement abusing power, it’s wrong if you’re in a locker room or a board room. 

Keep in mind that I have not read all the particulars and don’t know all the details, but I will be digging for more information but just at first glance this is what hits me first. 

On one hand… it’s grown men in the NFL… everyone talks smack, it’s a brutal game filled with big personalities. It’s manly… you need to be tough, physically and mentally. It’s FOOTBALL!!! We can’t let football become all touchy feely… men are men, let them be men. 

On the other hand…. it’s the NFL!! What the hell do you have to do to make one of these rough and tumble, smack-talking hard-hitting behemoths walk away from a MILLION dollar contract?? I guarantee that kind of money buys a lot of patience from me…which makes me wonder how bad it had to be for this person.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
