Working on the Family Tree and What did I See?

  As I was working on my family tree, what did I see?   Something that really surprised me.

  You see bullying is something that, I have been around many, many years.  Working in the school system, we learned a

   lot  of  about bullying.  What causes it? What may prevent it? Why does it happen?

  So as I was reading an old newspaper article was surprised to see this topic is probably as old as humans now I fear.

Researching during the Summer

  Researching during the Summer

  Yes, it can be fun, or it can be stressful. If you get to go to a AC'd library it's super. If you set at home and have only fans not always greatly desired.
