Texas High School’s Anti-Bullying Video Becomes Internet Sensation [VIDEO]
Recently one of my co-workers brought to my attention an anti-bullying video she'd seen done by a former rival high school of hers. I think it's sensational, showing a lot of work and coordination to pull it off.
The anti-bullying movement seems to have stemmed from the shooting tragedies, starting with Columbine in 1999. Dr. Peter Langman, author of "Why Kids Kill: Inside the Minds of School Shooters", implies in his blog that bullying does play a part but there are deeper reasons other than retaliation for harassment. Nonetheless, bullying is present in schools and elsewhere.
Cypress Ranch High School in Cypress, Texas near Houston came up with a unique way to get the anti-bullying message across. They lip-synched a song written and sung by a fellow student, Kaitlan K., and posted it on the internet. It's a phenomenal production and a memory those kids won't soon forget. Check it out.
