"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

What struck me hardest was when one of Kevin’s teachers told him . . . “They’er just being boys.” It reminds me of a popular television show that is currently on TV, a family opening up a chain of restaurants. There is a lot of bulling going on and people just write it off as “That’s just the way they are”. A man bullying his brother; why do some people think this is “Just being boys”?
Those who bully use power to HURT people, attempting to make themselves feel better. Power does not always mean bigger or stronger, power can also mean popular or smart among other things. There is something wrong with these relationships.
Sure there are bullies in the world, and there always will be. People will tell you “That’s just the way life is”. For the victim it does not need too stay “Just the way life is.” Kevin came to realize why he had not discovered this earlier, “But I didn’t see it because I wasn’t looking outside of myself”.
Kevin confronts the issues straight on, in a manner that will help the young and the old. You see, bullying is not just for the young. People at all stages of life and people of all ages have been the victims of bullies. I told a friend of mine, who is in his sixties, that I had just read this book on Bullying by Kevin Kearns; his eyes watered up, he lowered his head and said “I was bullied when I was a kid, it effects me to this day.”
One of the people in Kevin’s book that affected me was Kevin’s uncle Henry, he took action to help another person ‘Look outside himself’. You will not notice much about Uncle Henry, but he played a pivotal role in Kevin’s life. We need more Uncle Henrys, how about you?
Kevin, thank you for opening up . . . You have made a difference in many lives.
A Father, Police Officer, Crisis Counselor, Youth Counselor, Pastor, Mentor, International Business Developer and-
a victim of bullying.
