Dearest A Piece Full World readers,

 I am taking a break from writing about workplace bullying and violence.  The outrage no longer propels.  The inner anguish no longer bursts.  Peace for us, my fellow bullied and harassed educators, is possible...but it was a long time coming for me.

Right now I see, in my mind's eye, my abuser and those bosses who  protect him.  It's like a group family picture.  He's seated in the middle.  He's surrounded by dressed up, smiling and standing others.  Oh, I am smiling too!  I am delightedly laughing for I do not have bitterness.  I honestly see these dressed up people--their hands lightly and lovingly resting on my tormentor's shoulders--with kindness and forgiveness. Some sadness too, for in spite of my honesty here at A Piece Full World and through my formal reports to my school district, he is still in a leadership position.

If you are new to A Piece Full World I know you are suffering.  Please use this website as a reference.  Please also feel free to communicate with me.  I will return all emails.

If you are a "seasoned" follower of A Piece Full World, I hope my experience has been of help.  I do not know when I will return.  I am, however, taking all of my work here and creating a book.  Please look for it.

Thank you,

 Kim
