Letter: Students learn vital lesson
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Many schools take field trips, and the students from Excelsior High in Washougal have experienced one that I hope will stay with them always. They had no idea that when they viewed the documentary "Bully," their hearts would be so deeply touched. When the film ended, there was complete silence.
I hope that the message conveyed will stay with them as they complete their years at school and on into adulthood. I would recommend this film to all middle and high school students. There is some profanity, but it is seldom used.
Parents should also attend, so they can discuss the powerful message with their child. Hopefully, viewers will leave with a renewed compassion for others.
A special thanks to Liberty Theatre for allowing our students to attend a special morning showing. I hope every teacher and administrator will see this documentary and show it to their students.
