Bullying has become an epidemic of sorts. It can be done either physically or verbally or even over the Internet. The problem is that the people who do the bullying are just as broken as the ones who are being bullied. That doesn’t excuse what they do, but it can make fixing the situation difficult. The most important person is the victim, though. It’s hard to break through and show that they are loved, though.
That was the situation with a girl named Ashley Wastakiewicz. The seven-year-old was being bullied by a neighborhood boy, who was nearly twice her age. He even allegedly pushed her off her bike and kicked her in the face so badly that she needed to go to the hospital. Ashley’s mom was so angry at this that she created an anti-bullying page on Facebook. It quickly gained traction and a local biker club saw it.
These bikers then made their way over to the Wastakiewicz’s and met them in a park. There were at least 20 of them and they allowed her to sit on their bikes. That’s huge, since bikes are the most valuable property to them. They also went to her house and stayed outside in a show of force to show the bully that Ashley was cared for. These bikers came at the right time to help keep her from falling into an abyss of despair.
The story is not over yet. Apparently, the parents of the bully don’t believe that he could ever do such a thing and said they were going to get an order of protection against Ashley’s family. The inability of parents to accept that their children might hurt other kids is what allows the cycle of bullying to continue. Hopefully the bikers will continue to maintain their presence until the whole situation is solved.
What an inspiring story. I couldn’t help but get mad at the mother of the bully who denied everything. It’s people like her who give parents a bad name. What did you think? Please leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
