Having been picked on, excluded socially, made fun of, treated differently all of my life, I totally get the fact that Bullyinn needs to be eradicated from our society, we need to teach acceptance, of all people we are all the same, one race, Human. It should not matter what someones race, color, sexual preference, clothing, hair cut or anything else whatsoever.

A poem that speaks to it as well from The Huffington Post–>

ESCONDIDO, Calif. — A woman’s poem about being bullied in a California school 25 years ago has brought her former classmates to tears. Now, they’ve created a scholarship fund in her name and raised $800 to fly her back to California for a class reunion.

Former classmates say they were reduced to tears after reading Lynda Frederick’s poem, which she posted on the Orange Glen High School class of 1987’s 25th reunion Facebook page.

“This poem touched me so bad I could not sleep…I cried,” Frederick’s classmate, Lisa Wallace, told NBC News.

In the poem, Frederick, now a mother of three who lives in Seneca Falls, N.Y., described how the bullying she endured as a teenager “shattered her childhood.”

that little girl who came to school with the clothes she wore the day before
instead of asking why.. you picked on her

the little girl who had to walk to school while others rode the bus

instead of asking why.. you picked on her

the little girl who had bruises and was dirty

instead of asking why.. you picked on her

the little girl who was always crying

instead of asking why.. you picked on her

Classmate Kristi Malone told NBC News that she remembers how cruel the other kids were to Frederick.

“Looking at her being bullied horribly and thinking…I feel so bad for her,” said Malone. “But never thinking in my head that I could stand up for her, and not once did anyone back her up.”

Frederick’s poem has been a wake up call for many of her classmates, Malone said.

“Just people in tears, like ‘how could we have done this to her,'” she said. “[They] were just crying, saying ‘Why did I do that?'”

Many of Frederick’s classmates have since contacted her and apologized.

They have also raised money to fly her to Escondido, Calif., for the July class reunion and have set up a scholarship fund in her name.

“We are making a statement for all that bully anyone, it is not right and it feels bad on both ends,” wrote Wendy Bergin Gotte on the high school reunion’s Facebook page. “It just goes down the line and hurts everyone along the way.”

Frederick said she forgives her old classmates and has accepted the invitation to return for the reunion.

“I said, Christ forgave me..and I forgive you,” she said.

Quotes from other tech sites–>

Gizmodo: ‘It’s almost like looking at a glossy magazine page. It also has much more powerful guts, with a much faster processor, graphics and more memory.’
TechCrunch: ‘As far as weight and shape, it’s almost exactly the same as the iPad 2. They wouldn’t allow comparison shots – probably because the new iPad is a little thicker – but the dimensional differences are minor and the overall feel is near-identical.’
Engadget: ‘By and large, the new guy is the same as the old guy (Home button included), but with a few nice amenities that could very well convince owners of earlier iPads to upgrade. Upon touching the HD variant, it’s not the overall form factor that grabs us — it’s the screen.’
TechRepublic: ‘Apple is trying hard to get us to see the iPad as more than just a consumption device. It clearly wants this to be a viable option for more and more users to consider instead of a laptop.’

Personally I can not wait to get my hands on one to evaluate. It should prove to be a great educational tool, as well as one for musicians, artists and business users. I wish they would come out with an 8″ version for around $299 for those that do not have a budget for the higher priced versions.
