In the article Bullying by Rubel Shelley the readers are introduced to the social issue of bullying and the bullying can be conducted in more ways than one. Bullying has affected many individuals and families, because bullying becomes more that just simple teasing it can lead to severe harassment. In this article a grandmother who is 68 years old was being verbally abused on the bus she drives by the children on the bus. The children were making dreadful comments about her dead grandson who committed suicide (Shelley, 2012). This is a serious cause of suicide in our nation and actually becoming a serious problem Rubel Shelley questions whether of or not bullying could cease to exist, but Shelley seemed pretty confident that may never really end. Rubel Shelley hopes bullying can come to an end, and wishes that people can see the error of their ways.
Rubel Shelley took the issue bullying and presented in a case rarely seen at least by myself. The act of bullying is usually amongst to school children, but she presented a situation where a grandmother was being verbally abused by school children. Instead of only including Shelley’s own opinion rubel Shelley included others opinions on the verbal abuse of this elderly lady. Many would make implications that the grandmother was really traumatized about the disturbing verbal assault pertaining her grandson who committed suicide.
