Too Many to Who Will Stop the Bullying 
The challenges of relationships how do lovers handle them
The challenges of bullying how do we stop them 

Too Many (Shakespearean sonnet) 

Too many painful heartaches have we bourn
Too many sleepless nights of deep regret
The empty shouts with which we were beset
The lonely darkness sheltering our mourn
Too many minute passing as if years
Wondering are we ever coming home
Reflecting on what was where does it roam
We can’t believe that love could bring such tears
Too many dreams still waiting to come true
Too many plans were made that didn’t last
Too many angry blames were freely cast
Too many woes to stop a kiss that’s due
Yet through it all we found great Joy somehow
Too many things have passed to give up now

(Another example of "Surprise Factor". This time, from a world of negatives, a positive is born. To accentuate the finale, I used the words "too many". I could have used "too many" to start every line, but by adopting  the pattern used, a level of interest is brought to this sonnet,.- Years after we where married, trouble came into Arlene's and my life. So much for the "perfect lovers". The sonnet covered most of what went on. Maybe some of our readers can relate. Ever hear the saying, "Never go to bed angry"? Good advice, but hard to put into practice, Arlene and I adopted,"Blessed be the ties that bind." Those "ties" also include the troubled waters. we bridged, and stayed in love. We lived a great roller coaster ride. What made the fireplace warmer, on those cold nights was, we lived it together.) 

After all, tomorrow will be: New Beginning "Another Day" 

Next challenge 

Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year. Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.What can we do to help stop bullying? Put yourself in the target’s place and show your support. UP (Stand Up Against Bullying) has produced a great video showing that we can stop bullying. 
What is great about this video is, it shows the we have different styles of getting involved. They all work. "Who Will Stop the Bullying?" 

Thank you for stopping by and your kind support
