LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Posted October 29, 2018
ARE YOU A BULLY?
Bullying is in the news daily. Children are committing suicide over being bullied in school. I am not going to discuss that today. I am going to discuss the adult bullying going on.
We have seen many examples of this nationwide with shootings and sending bombs in the mail. We, as adults, have set this in place. We make social media comments indicating that if you don’t believe as I do then you are an idiot.
I would like to bypass the National and state politics to address the local issues and bullying. Here in DeWitt County the Wind farm has touched off a storm of opinions. I have seen neighbor hating neighbor for their stance concerning the wind turbines. I have seen County board members being condescending to other board members and residents for their opinions.
I am seeing political signs being removed from public property and destroyed. In Farmer City one candidate’s signs were ALL removed, NO signs and other candidates’ signs removed. There was even a case of a YES sign moved to a cornstalk so that if a combine had run over it there could have been major damage to the combine.
These are all forms of ADULT bullying. We as adults must set the example for the kids if we can expect to help stop bullying among the kids. We must allow others to express their opinions. If the signs are not on your property then leave them alone.
STOP BULLYING NOW
