Air date: 
Thu, 04/30/2009 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
Short Description: 
discussion on the suicides of two 11 year old children due to abuse by their peers.

all this month we have been exploring aspects of mental and emotional healing and ways to cope in this world...  this thursday on 'guess who's coming to radio??!!' we will focus on the suicides of carl joseph walker hoover and jaheem harrera, two 11 year olds who were taunted and assaulted to the point where they felt they needed to take their own lives... 

we will explore the idea of social perceptions in relation to peer-to-peer abuse (and how these perceptions contribute to the perpetuation of the cycle of violence); how the school system may or may not be intervening in ways which assist children being abused by their peers and/or adults; and, how communities can connect and heal in these situations. 

i have  written a blog about this; you can check it out  here on the KBOO website!

we would love to hear from YOU!!!  call 503 231 8187 if you have had any experiences with peer-to-peer abuse/'bullying', or if you have witnessed it.  DEFINITELY call if you have some positive solutions!
check it out at 8pm (west coast time), 10pm (in the middle) and 11pm (east coast time)!

guess who's coming to radio!!!
