(in the first sentence the makes should be made) I would have figured out a solution like ignoring the bullies or stand up to the bully. I think Jackson should have figured out a solution instead of eating because then the bullies will have more things to bully you about. I think that if he didn't turn to food he wouldn't be on the biggest loser and wouldn't have to burn all of that fat(not trying to be mean). Bullying can effect eating habits by the only way for some people to overcome bullying is to eat a lot which makes them feel cozy.

Very true. He should had confronted the bullies instead of eating all that junk. However, I think bullying can also turn you to food because it gives you a sense of serenity. Most people have a thing or place they think gives them a more peaceful aspect on life. I agree that it would save him a lot of time not going to the Biggest Loser.

I need to clarify: it wasn't a rumor that he was gay. He "came out," meaning he revealed that he identified himself as being a homosexual. Either way, the bullying was the same. However, instead of being able to deny it, he had to deal with the fact that people honestly felt like his TRUE SELF wasn't worth being kind to.

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.

Friends knew the eighth-grader was gay. His family accepted him for it. But others used it as a reason to taunt and tease him. On Sept. 19, he could take it no more
sajan patel's insight:

Step 1: Curate this article.  Step 2: Read it.  Step 3: Add your insight by answering these questions. How does Seth relate to August in Wonder(underlined)? Does he have any friends? Would you be his friend and stand up for him? If so, why? Why do you think he decided to comit suicide?

I would be his friend because I believe no person should ever be bullied to the point where they commit suicide. Friends are there for each other, and clearly, his best friend was not going to be a good friend. We sometimes forget that we are all human and humans are humans no matter what they believe. No person should die because they believe something different from other people. He most likely committed suicided because he could not take the taunting and teasing anymore. He got to the point were it was so bad, that he thought the solution was to kill himself.

(the commit up top is suppose to be commit)
sajan patel's comment, January 30, 2013 5:14 PM
I agree with you and disagree. I think Seth Walsh relates to August not only because he is different, but also because many people talk about August like people talk about Seth Walsh. I disagree because August has Jack to stand up for him. His best friend did turn on him and he also was the one who started the rumor. You are right about that. I would also be friends with Seth Walsh because no person should be bullied period. However, I think he committed suicide because of what you said, but also because of peer pressure.

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.

Ella Thomason's curator insight, January 24, 2013 11:22 PM

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. 

Carter Griffin's comment, January 25, 2013 7:51 AM
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.
