So sad …

In the Greenwich Time today, http://www.greenwichtime.com/news/article/A-eulogy-for-Bart-Palosz-4776345.php there is a beautiful eulogy written by friends of the Palosz family. Rachel and Brian Raabe. The excerpt below, is towards the end of the eulogy, and perhaps among the most poignant words written…

Bart Palosz is the teen who killed himself this week in desperation. As another terrible bullying situation, we can only hope that this finds its way in the hearts of the seemingly heartless, and adults who ignore bad behavior.

…”As individuals we need to reach out more, embrace people’s differences, watch out for one another, and most importantly, pass these traits to our children. Schedule play dates for your children with others that are perhaps not their obvious choice, take the time to get to know peers that are maybe considered different and take an interest in them. The simple observation that, “kids can be cruel” is not action, it is an excuse, an inequitable pardon for those whose actions lead to us being here today and an excuse for not teaching our children well.

Hopefully we have all learned from this tragedy.”
May he rest in the peace that he couldn’t find on earth…
