Bullying is still viewed as a rite of passage for a lot of kids, at least according to a lot of adults who don’t seem to remember their own bullying experiences very well. These sorts of experiences can leave permanent scars on children, and the wounds are even worse when they are still fresh. Kids know full well that there is nothing good about childhood bullying, including the boy portrayed in this video.
It is notable that the adult he went to for help about his sister’s bullying was Santa Clause, as if he knew that he needed an adult who was magical and gave unconditional presents. He asked Santa to make sure people would stop bullying his sister.
This is a request that manages to be both poignant and depressing, given its broader implications. People should please SHARE this video on Facebook, since it does communicate an important message to everyone.
