To the Editor:
Intervention, within the community, such as parents, students and educators, is needed to address the issue of bullying, which has become ridiculous in our schools.
I read there was research done on 37 school shootings, including Columbine, and found that almost three-quarters of student shooters felt bullied, threatened, attacked or injured by others.
In fact, several shooters reported experiencing long-term and severe bullying and harassment from their peers.
I feel that a lot of this community does not take bullying seriously, but it's happening and something needs to be done.
I am willing to help in any way I can to prevent and stop bullying in our school.
