Everyone in Falmouth should watch this video. Bullying usually starts in a school system and moves onto adult life. The people who bully in adult life tend to be drawn to positions offering them ostensibly legitimate power of some sort, such as local town boards. These local political boards sometimes form private local organizations made up of the bully's superiors and peers who are also bullies. Local town residents aka the taxpayers become scared of the consequences of crossing the bully. The current cause of the adult bulling in Falmouth over the wind turbines is the local political bullies perceives as a threat to their own status and fear fearing that the wind turbine victims will inadvertently or deliberately expose some negative aspect of the wind turbine health and economic fiasco. Everyone in Falmouth should watch this video.

Songs can help young children learn about kindness and tolerance. The song “Be a Buddy, not a Bully” can be heard on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or7WPUtUnRo

Need to sing a song to Falmouth Town Meeting Members. How is what is happening to the wind turbine victims in Falmouth any different than the school bully in the video ? The bullies in Falmouth politics are high in the town hierarchy. There are no Select Board members that are victims of the turbines. The residents of Falmouth believe the victims of the wind turbines are lying because the local political bullies peers are human resource boards and legal department. The residents of Falmouth believe the bully by default because they voted for them . Stand up for the wind turbine victims- you saw the video

I think anything we do to promote equity and inclusion and an opportunity or a place for students to express themselves in a way that makes them comfortable is a positive thing for all of the students in our schools.These anti bullying quotes are effective for anyone who is a target of bullying. Bullying is an ongoing problem that needs to be put to a stop. These quotes will encourage parents, educators, children and anyone who is the target or witness of this horrible act. Be remind of your self with this “I will use these skills for the rest of my life and have an appreciation for what I have learned.Keep safe and protected check this out at http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

Congratulations to all of you at Morse Pond School--you truly do "get it" about being that wonderful fourth character--The Bravehearted--the witness, resister, and defender. You demonstrated what each one of you individually and all of you collectively can do to break this horrible cycle of tragedy. You are making a difference. I am glad, Barbara Coloroso author: The Bully, The Bullied, and The Bystander

Falmouth doesn't "get it" far from it. Folks ,Falmouth has issues with bullying the wind turbine victims and it's well known. Falmouth through blog sites, letters to the editor, local news media and a private local organization has tried to discredit, bully, threaten and intimidate the residents who live around the wind turbines. Four years has gone by and the turbines have garnered international review. The short answer is money buys both silence and public ignorance. Falmouth residents are also victims themselves of propaganda campaigns ranging from programs to misleading claims about all the wonderful benefits wind turbines supposedly bring. The town is entering the final stage of wind energy by being able to afford the world’s most expensive lawyers to sue itself again and again.
