I think that Asher was brought to suicide by only four kids because of all of the insults that the boys harmed him with. I think that no person helped him because the kids that hurt him wouldn't help him because that's "pointless". Why would the boys just push him down and kick his books if they were going to help him up? Asher wasn't worried about his families opinion on him being homosexual in my opinion. His family wasn't the people that were bullying him. Asher was worried about the four kids and what they would do to harm him. I think that he committed suicide because of the boys, not his own family.

I agree with everything you just said, Ella. Exactly, he wasn't nervous about his family caring; he was nervous about those four boys. He was nervous it would around the whole school, and it would give those 4 boys another reason to bully Asher about!

In my opinion, these boys did this because they thought that they would become popular, and they would gain attention. i think that the seventh grade boys posted this to be funny. This action was a mistake! If they thought that there was any humor in this, they were just plain desprite for attention. There is nothing funny about this. The boys probably didn't have an inspiration to this horrible act. My response to this is NOT laughter. My response is anger and sadness.

I believe that these boys bullied this woman to amuse their peers and gain popularity among their friends. I think they probably uploaded the video to YouTube for the same reason. They thought they would be famous for bullying this woman, and they are, but not in a good way. These kids should be ashamed for what they did. This is just plain cruel.
TrippVaughn's curator insight, January 28, 2013 8:00 PM

     I think the boys were insecure and wanted to become popular. They probably were insecure about their weight, the amount they sweat, and their hearing. They also thought that doing this would make them popular and cool. 

 

     They posted the video on youtube because the boys probably thought that doing this would make them cool and popular. If they spread the word about it the boys thought that it would make them more popular.

 

     The boys'motivation was to feel better about themselves and to gain attention by becoming popular.

 

     This article horrified and sickened me while it brightened my day at the end. it is just shocking that anybody would do such a crime, especially to a grammother. The way Max Sidorov responded is just amazing. he raised massive amounts of money for Mrs. Klein. Finnaly, raising money for Max Sidorov is a great idea. Giving kindness back to the giver is the best way to respond to anything like this.

Why would you bully someone? These boys may have done this to gain attention, or maybe it was a dare, or maybe they are just mean. I believe that they posted this on YouTube so others would be able to see them treat this woman badly and the boys would get attention this way. Another reason, is that if it were a dare, the children that put them up to this can see that they actually did it. I think that their goal was for attention and for popularity. However, if the only way to become popular is this, why would you do it? It is a horrible way to get attention and popularity. Why? Why, is all I can say. I thought this article was depressing. Why would people even dream of doing such horrible things! I believe that we should treat people the way we want to be treated, so if they are treating this woman this badly, they must not care how people treat them. Even though they apologized, they need to do more then that! They are lucky that the woman was kind enough not to press charges! I just can't imagine how this bus lady felt!

In the 21st century, the kids who bully other kids are usually the stronger, more popular kids that intimidate other teens. Kyle was saved because the weekend that he gained his best friend; he was planning on killing himself. Thankfully, due to his friend's actions, he didn't. The girls wanted to be around him because he was handsome, strong, nice, and most likely popular.
Ella Thomason's comment, January 31, 2013 11:12 PM
In my opinion everything that you said was true, except that he was popular. I believe that the kids that bullied Kyle were what people called "popular". Honestly Kyle should be popular for being courageous ness.

This story reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because both kids are bullied for being different. August is bullied for not looking "normal" and the boy in the movie is bullied for being smarter than "normal." People who join in on bullying are less likely to get bullied themselves. They can become friends with the bully and escape the torments of being a victim. In my opinion, parents are not very useful in preventing bullying. In most cases, kids don't want to tell their parents that they are being bullied, or they will sound like a snitch. The role that the kids play is much more crucialthan the parents. Obviously, your parents are going to stick up for you, but what you really need is for other kids to help you. If the bullies finds themselves out-numbered, they may back down.
Amelia Kate Foulkes's comment, January 24, 2013 10:47 PM
This movie reminds me of Wonder because it is about a boy who is getting bullied because of his physical appearance. I think join bullies because they think that the bully is cool and knows if he's on the bully's side, then he won't be the next target. Parents can do speeches and assemblies to tell kids how to prevent bullying, but, at the end of the day, if a bully wants to hurt someone physically or emotionally, they will despite actions of adults. The role of adults is smaller because bullying usually occurs when adults are not around. Also, most adults don't really understand bullying because it is different now than it was when they were growing up. Parents can prevent bullying by making sure their kid isn't the bully and helping their kid. Kids can help by being nice to kids that get bullied a lot or telling their friend if they are bullying someone, because usually the bully doesn't even realize the extent of their bullying until later.
John McMaster's comment, January 30, 2013 9:12 AM
This trailer reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because of a couple different reasons. The first one, of course, is that he was bullied at school, but it also reminds me of Wonder (underlined) because he did not want to go to school because of the mean kids, which relates to August's excuse. I think that it would be tempting to join in on bullying because the bullies are usually the cool kids, so you feel like agreeing with the cool kids will make you cool. I think that parents play a big role in bullying because a victim of bullying to tell his mom or dad, without anyone knowing. I would think, and hope, that the bullys' parents do not want the children to bully, so if the bullied child's parents told the bully's parents, the bully would most likely get into trouble. However, a common reason for bullying is a lack of a family life, so in some cases, telling the bully's parents may not stop anything. I think that a parent's role in bullying is smaller than the child's, because the child has to stand up for himself at one point, and have the parents as a backup plan. If the child can learn to be strong and stand up for himself, he will eventually be strong enough to not be to hurt by bullying. THis will let the victim be able to overcome bullying completely, and the whole problem will be solved.
