The problem of bullying has become a terrible social issue that transcends race, age, culture, religion etc. If you believe or understand the phrase "violence breeds violence" then you will understand the purpose of this story and have an answer for the person who is tired of being picked on, who feel that the solution is to "join the crowd" (retaliate). Starting their own war or joining another one will only make the problem worse. It is believed that we all have bully tendencies, some greater than others. Many times the hardest thing in life is to feel like you can't do anything about it. God tells us to trust him because vengeance (retaliation) is you're your retaliation will not compare to what God will do to the person when someone is harassing his children. His actions will be permanent and you won't have to be in jail for it. According to MBNBD (Make Beats Not Beat Downs) Facts and Statistics, in 2009 reported that, "90% of 4th through 8th graders say they are victims of bullying. And revenge is the strongest motivation for school shootings." The purpose of this story is to help children to understand the best way to decrease bullying, is not to become one. Children should be told to keep reporting this problem to appropriate authorities until something is done. Silence empowers the bully. In the story the characters do not believe they are bullies. They make excuses for their behaviors and think it's okay. At the end of the story they recognize they are the bullies and decide they want to change their ways. The words rhyme to ease the hurt on a painful subject.

The powerful account of one writer's unlikely friendship with his childhood bully, now the president of a motorcycle club in one of America's most dangerous cities. Once upon a time, Alex Abramovich and Trevor Latham were mortal enemies: miniature outlaws in a Long Island elementary school, perpetually at each other's throats. Then they lost track of each other. Decades later, when they met again, Abramovich was a writer and Latham had become President of the East Bay Rats, a motorcycle club in Oakland. In 2010, Abramovich moved to California to immerse himself in Latham's world - one of fight clubs, booze-filled nights, and beat-downs on the city's streets. But dangerous, dysfunctional Oakland was also becoming one of America's most rapidly gentrifying cities, and the questions Abramovich had arrived with were thrown into brutal relief: How do we live with the burden of violence? How do we overcome it? Do we overcome it? As Trevor, the Rats, and the city they live in careen between crises and moments of renaissance, Abramovich explores issues of friendship, family, history, and destiny - and looks at what happens when those things fail. Bullies is at once a vivid, visceral narrative of an unusual friendship and an incisive portrait of a beautiful, terrible city.

Booby Kent was a bully--a steroid-pumped 20-year-old who dominated his peers in their comfortable, middle-class Ft. Lauderdale beach community through psychological, physical and sexual abuse. But on a summer night in 1993, Bobby was lured to the edge of the Florida everglades with a promise of sex and drugs. . .and was never seen alive again. The tormentor had become the victim in a bizarre and brutal act of vengeance carried out with ruthless efficiency and cold-blooded premeditation by seven of his high school acquaintances--including his lifelong best friend--and instigated by one overweight, underloved teenager who believed her life would be perfect. . .if only Bobby Kent were dead. BULLY is a riveting story of adolescent rage and bloody revenge--all the more harrowing and horrific because it s true.
