MY SON DAVANTE COX HAS AUTISM AND HAS BEEN THE TARGET OF BULLYING FOR YEARS IN  CAHOKIA SCHOOL DISTRICT 187..STAFF AT THE DIFFERENT SCHOOLS HE HAS ATTENDED KNOWS MY SON VERY WELL...HE IS A VERY SWEET KID AND HAS A KIND WORD FOR ANYONE..MY SON HAS BEEN BULLIED BY STAFF AT A PARTICULAR SCHOOL AS WELL AS STUDENTS.. HE'S CALLED VULGAR NAMES EVERY SINGLE DAY  AND HE HAS EVEN BEEN THREATENED WITH BODILY HARM ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. I HAVE ADDRESSED THE SCHOOL...THE MEMBERS OF THE SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT...THE BUS COMPANY AND IT SEEMS LIKE MY WORDS FELL ON DEAF EARS AND JUST RECENTLY A TEACHER OVERHEARD THE BULLIES TAUNTING MY SON AND SHE SPRANG INTO ACTION TO RETIFY THE SITUATION. MY SON HAS BEEN PUT ON ANOTHER SCHOOL BUS AS A RESULT OF THE BULLYING AND THE BUS AIDE NOT DOING HER JOB..I AM GLAD THAT MY SON'S BUS WAS CHANGED BUT THE BULLIES STILL HAS ACCESS TO HIM DURING SCHOOL HOURS..I AM TIRED OF SEEING MY SON UPSET AND CRYING BECAUSE OF THE BULLYING.. I'VE HAD STUDENTS AT MY SON'S SCHOOL WALK UP TO ME AND HAVE COME TO MY HOME TO TELL ME HOW THEY TRIED TO PROTECT MY SON FROM THE BULLIES AT SCHOOL AND ON THE BUS..I WANT TO SEE CHANGE AND ALL THOSE WHO ARE BULLYING TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS IN A POSITIVE WAY..I THINK THE PARENTS OF THE BULLIES NEED TO BE NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY AND HAVE A FACE TO FACE WITH THE PARENT OF THE CHILD/CHILDREN BEING BULLIED SO A PROBLEM CAN BE  ADDRESSED AND SOLVED..I DON'T BELIEVE IN BULLIES BEING BULLIED BUT I DO THINK THEY SHOULD MAKE AMENDS TO THE PERSON OR PEOPLE THAT THEY'VE HURT BECAUSE IF YOU SINCERELY TELL SOMEONE THAT YOU ARE SORRY FOR YOUR ACTIONS IT WILL SHOW   THEM THAT  BEING A COMPASSIONAT HUMAN BEING IS OK. PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT KIND OF EFFECT BULLYING HAS ON A CHILD OR GROWN-UP FOR THAT MATTER.. PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH....I SAY IT'S TIME TO TAKE A MAJOR STAND AGAINST BULLYING AND MY MOTTO IS

"DON'T TALK ABOUT IT... DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT"
