BROOKVILLE â€” Perhaps parents breathe their first sighs of relief in the silence of uncertainty as the sounds that the sharpness of a cold stethoscope catches are brought into existence. That steady, rhythmic pulse provides not only proof of life, but a beat to believe in, one that holds a lifetimeâ€™s worth of hopes and dreams.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Bullying has been seen in real life, on television and in films. People may like to see the underdog rise against his or her instigators, but retaliation such as that seen in the violent killings at Columbine High School shows that bullying continues to be out of control â€” along with the retaliation.
In the last several years, thereâ€™s been a focus on attempting to put an end to bullying at Punxsutawney Area Middle School, which was visited by the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, a program for explaining to students whatâ€™s behind bullying and how to end it.
