Many of us use the microwave for this task, “meals in minutes.” I teach a cooking class for children each summer for fourth grade through eighth grades.

Bullies in my bedroom: Internet aggression is real

bernard.jpg

Today I watched a video that made me want to cry.
A boy of 12 or so broadcast himself reading hateful messages others had written to him on the internet.
I cringed as I watched and heard him read “Swine,” and “His Daddy scared the gay out of him,” and “Fatty” and other statements that I can’t repeat because they are so foul.
