This little boy, my grandson, sustained the black eye, swollen jaw and several other bruises that can not be seen at the hands of an older child on his school bus ride home this week.
He is going to be all right physically and the perpetrator has to deal with consequences including a suspension.
The thing is, such issues should never happen.
Now Dalton, who is a bit challenged as a student, may feel that going t school at all is a danger to him.
And I ask myself ‘why’.
Why does one child choose to inflict injuries on another?
