The Beginning of Internet Trolls
"We will not let you make your dinners out of the things we feel!" This beautiful spoken word piece "Troll" is from Shane Koyczan's newest album, and is illustrated by the very talented Gareth Gaudin. The beginning tells the tale of the dangers of internet trolling, and the last part is about cyberbullying. I'm thankful that my kids have not yet faced any serious problems in their online presence, but I still fear it happening. While some may feel this video is making a mountain out of a mole hill, I know from my experience teaching that cyberbullying is no joke, and has a very real effect in many children, and for that matter, adults.

Trolls don't just live under bridges. Surprisingly their presence is disgustingly strong on all sites, even those full if your "friends." I hope you havent had as hard of a time lately @AgentCory

Just as @AgentCory said this is really powerful. I see so many of my students affected by this type of online bullying and it's so sad. As @danidee it can be so hard to ignore it and it truly impacts a person's life.
