There has been a lot of news lately about bullying. Many of the victims were gay or thought to be gay. That’s a tragedy. But a recent radio news program said that many Middle School children experience the verbal abuse of their peers. This is a social issue crying out for attention.

What can I do? What can you do? I don’t have a sound bite answer. But I am going to go into prayer about this with St. Francis as my example: "Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace!"

Will you join me?


If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
