Michael Hicks's insight:

I think that the boys bullied her because the were drunk or maybe they just did it because of a dare. I think that she had had enough bullying and thought that she would be a target forever. No, I wouldn't have and I don't think that anyone would agree to suicide.

An online fund-raising drive for a 68-year-old Rochester woman who was brutally taunted by a group of 12- and 13-year-old boys has proved hugely successful.
Michael Hicks's insight:

I think that the boys felt the need to bully Karen because they just wanted to look cool in front of their freinds. However, I am very suprised that no one steped up for her even if "it would have damged the their reputation"  or "hurt their popularity" its the write thing to do!

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.

     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.

Michael Hicks's insight:

I think that they put it on YouTube because they felt cool and wanted others to think so too also that they could pick on someone that was bigger than them and not be stopped. When I read this article, I instantly became sad and puzzled as to why someone would do that to a lady of any weight or age. I also think that the kids that appologised were totally faking and they were forced to say that.

Michael Hicks's insight:

1) It says that the narrator was offended or upset with the story and that she wanted to be annonumous, and i wouldnt have sighned it eather.

 

2) I think that the idea of the story is very true but the bird thing wasnt too realistic to me because most kids aren't usually aloud to go into the woods alone or at all.

The narrator isn't rude for not signing the card, but the narrator not signing the card shows that Billy hurt her feelings enough for her not to sign the card. It also tells you that she felt no sympathy for those who had shown none for her. I would sign the card because I would feel bad about for him losing his mother. But, a card couldn’t save his cruel personality, only he could change that. It sounds like a very realistic story because children are insensitive towards others who are obese, and often feel as if they should be bullied.
Carlin Weinberg's curator insight, January 24, 2013 4:47 PM

This story seems realistic, yet not. It is realistic beacuse of the actions of the kids. For instance, you might not sign the card if you hate someone. It is not realistic because I don't think kids would play with dead birds.

Jake Jamison's curator insight, January 24, 2013 8:42 PM

The card is for your "deepest sympathies" for Billy and his family. Dorothy pauses for a minute because Billy had been so mean to her, and then doesn't put anything. I think I would of been the same as Dorothy because he had been so mean to her. I would think this is a true story. My reasoning is that here is your usual bullying. Billy calls her names and then Dorothy doesn't do anything. Then you have Dorothy who returns the bullying when she doesn't sign the card. I would think many victims of bullying would try to bully the bully back.
