Salaam Alaikum, everyone.

I am a substitute teacher and I guess I could say that as an educator and a person who was bullied as a kid the movie spoke to me at a deep level, but I think it is great for anyone to watch. It is a fictional story of a high school teacher who reached out to a troubled and bullied kid and helped avert a school shooting, by placing him in a school play and giving him the chance to express what he was going through.

The movie takes a hard look at bullying in schools, and how it traumatizes the victims to such an extent that some feel committing a horrific crime like this is the only way out. It exposes the hypocrisy of some who will condemn the unjustifiable and evil actions of bullied kids who have gunned down their classmates, but turn a blind eye to the bullying that helped drive them to this point. It also shows the futility of violence, and how the vengeful actions that some take do not solve the problem.

Watching this film I found interesting, not only because of the issue of bullying in schools, but also because it reflects some global realities. Terrorist actions against innocent civilians are always unjustified and can never be excused on any level. However, often they are a result of injustices being perpetrated, injustices that are ongoing and ignored- and that may drive people into the ranks of extremists.

Please watch this movie and feel free to post your thoughts/comments/reflections. I would love to get people's feedbacks and maybe get a discussion going on this.

God bless you.
