A reflection and prayer for Anti-Bullying Week


Lord, let us remember that when we laugh at someone,

they feel pain.

 

Let us remember that when we pick on someone

they are angry but also afraid.


Let us remember that when we don’t stick up for someone who is being bullied,

they are alone.


Let us remember that we bully because

we want to feel strong, the boss.


But are we? What have we done?


We have forgotten our own fear by making others frightened.

We have forgotten our own loneliness by leaving one of us alone.

We have hidden our own nightmare in another’s terror.

It is no longer enough to be sorry.

It is no longer enough to boast and swagger.

These attitudes are hollow,

skating on the thin ice of our own fears, our own hates.


Lord, may we have the courage to confront ourselves

in the ‘not me’, ‘don’t want to know’, ‘it’s their problem’, ‘I’m not involved’.


May we have the courage to confront ourselves

in the ‘I’m right’, ‘She’s pathetic’, ‘He’s stupid’, I’m me and it’s my world, not theirs’.


For we are all hurt, all afraid, all alone, all different,

all me, and the world is all ours.


We pray this in the name of the Father,

and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

AMEN
