Kill the Behavior, Don't Kill the People

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a new app that is going to help combat cyberbullying and since I feel so strongly about the topic, I have to bring it up again.

Back in the day, you used to get bullied in a schoolyard and you come home with a black eye. Your parents know what’s wrong with you when that happens and for the most part, they can comfort you in some way to help rectify the situation.

The problem today is that kids don’t come home with black eyes. Bullying happens on the devices you’re reading this blog from right now.

We don’t know the harm that kids, and adults for that matter, are causing each other because everything is happening on a screen.

How about when it comes to public figures? We don’t even realize the magnitude of everybody piling on a situation where someone has made a mistake and we are causing serious, life-threatening harm with our fingers.

Think about it…Monica Lewinsky, Brian Williams, even Britt McHenry…we’re shaming public figures in a way that is just inhumane. "It’s a blood sport that has to stop," as Monica Lewinsky says:




All of us have made mistakes. If I broadcasted the biggest mistake you made in your life all over the world, it would be humiliating, embarrassing and crushing.

We have to be more cognizant about how we deal with people online. Just because we’re not in front of someone, we have to have some empathy. Kill the behavior, don’t kill the people.

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
