I cannot fathom the logic behind the decision undertaken by the school to ask the kid to leave the school because "burns were disturbing other students". They failed even greater at not being aware of the bullying and stopping it. The full weight of the law (if there is any) should be brought to bear upon them as an example to others who either choose to ignore bullying and do nothing about it.

The trauma of the victims who experience bullying are usually carried through their whole lives. Those who perpetuate it and those who do nothing about it are equally guilty. Once again the system there seems so socially inept.

Everyday more and more lines are drawn up to divide us. Its good to see, however minuscule the effort to break down these walls. We are all citizens of the universe, we belong to everything and everything belongs to us.
