Bullying, typically manifested through verbal attacks, physical attacks, destruction of property, name calling, and online abuse, is a nationwide epidemic with staggering statistics, some of which suggest that revenge for bullying is one of the strongest motivators for school shootings.
Bullying has also contributed ‘bullycide’ - a new age term indicative of suicide, or the killing of others, as a resulting of being bullied. Given recent statistics, and given that bullycide continues to be one of the leading causes of death among children under 14, the terms, sadly, seems to now be part and parcel of American vernacular
