Ken Meissner from Buena Vista University shared this video link about how one student responded to being bullied with Dale Carver who in turn passed it on to the school district.  Principals and several teachers have shown and discussed this video with their students. 

Now we would like to share the link with you.  Our hope is the video will continue the discussion of strategies all of us can use to decrease the incidents of bullying in our community.
