Disabled boy (Ryan Coomber) bullied and punched on school bus

ASSINIBOIA, Sask. - "A five-year-old Saskatchewan boy who lost a leg in a lawn mower
 accident is being bullied on the school bus and school officials aren't helping,
 argues the boy's father."
"Robert Coomber says his son, Ryan, got a black eye after being hit by an
 older student on the bus ride between the school in Assiniboia and the 
family home in Willow Bunch, about two hours southwest of Regina."
"I asked him why. He said it was because he was singing," said Coomber.
Coomber said he called the older student's parents but they were unwilling to help."
"Coomber said there was no co-operation from staff at Ryan's school or at 
he older student's school, which he said "refused outright to discipline the child
 in any way." Ryan's school goes up to Grade 4 and the older student's school 
covers Grades 5 to 8, but they share a bus."

What kind of human being would punch a disabled boy in the eye just because the boy
was singing on a bus? A 13 year-old bully  beating up a 5 year old boy
talk about a "fair" fight!

 What kind of parents would  hear of their son punching someone
in the face and do nothing about this situation?? What  kind of school and school board
would allow this 13-year old to continue to be in school? Are criminal charges
possible in this situation?

Here is a link to a video about this disgusting incident:

And the school administration's answer to this situation? They told Ryan's parents that he
could no longer ride the school bus and that Ryan's parents would have to drive him
200 km to and from school each day!   What kind of  people run schools these days???

Ryan and Mr. Coomber I hope you decde to not only sue this bully and his parents, but
also sue the school board, and bring this bully up on criminal charges (if the police and a
lawyer say you can)  as well!. Ryan deserves  justice and he also deserves
the right to be and feel safe when he is going to and from school on a bus!!
This bully deserves
to learn a lesson!

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed

Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed

Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein

The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi

The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller

Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -

Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
