Has anyone heard about this news story about the girl that was picked to be on the homecoming court at her school as a prank? The story has been making the rounds, and I'm just flabbergasted that kids can be so mean to each other. Here is a link to the story: http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/09/25/14092311-teen-picked-for-homecoming-court-as-prank-i-felt-like-piece-of-trash 
A lot of the comments on the story are blaming the parents of the bullies, and I partly agree with that. I would throttle my kids if I ever found out they played in a role in being this mean to someone, and hope that the parents of these bullies hand out some harsh punishments to their kids. Hopefully they aren't the type to assume that their angels would never behave in such a way.
The community seems to be really rallying around this young lady, and I hope that she has a very good time at homecoming. I also hope that she's not further bullied by the story making the media rounds.
