Stick and Stones, or Overblown Pondering?

"Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words could likely kill me" - Connor Holland.

I think as Nerds many of us growing up have experienced either bullying, or insults at the very least with the intent to hurt, annoy or just otherwise make us mad. Connor in this video brings up a pretty damn good point, but what do you guys think? Bullying is probably something that will never be eradicated, but we can do what we can to lessen its effect right?

Thank you so much for this. Someone just cursed me out today for being myself and this was very very comforting.

Wooooow. Great video! I think his passion goes a little far here and there. Such as interrupting people and telling them what they should teach. Could be possible depending on the situation and his approach. I just see how easy that could go wrong. That said, I was genuinely impacted by the video. Some very thought provoking things.

Good  and true video! "From Human to Human Being" is a life changing book. It covers this is a great way in the 1st Passage. This book will elevate you to a higher level.

I watched this earlier, and I totally agree with this 100%

I work with young children (3-4 years if anyone's interested!) and we tell them every day that words hurt and to use "kind words." We also talk about people they can talk to, and reassure them that their not alone.
In the grand scheme of things, I know it's not much, but hopefully it'll make them think when their older and now really.
Catch 'em while their young I recon!
