Many of us, at some point in our histories, have had experiences that fall on either side of the line delineating what we consider bullying.  Perhaps these experiences were as a bystander, victim, ally, advocate, and for many, perhaps as a bully.

What within us allows ourselves to behave this way?

Connectedness and empathy may be the answer to at least part of this question, and though building healthy communities is what we as educators have been doing for a long time, refocusing our lens on how we do so may be at least part of the solution
