This has been floating around Facebook (et al.) for awhile, but it warrants repeated sharing.  It is an excellent perspective on bullying and the last paragraph is well-stated:

“Society rewards the bullies because we’ve been brought up to believe that their victims don’t belong. That if someone doesn’t fit in, then they have to be put in their place, or destroyed.  And this movie demonstrates that this line of thinking is wrong.  It’s so much deeper than a standard “be yourself” message, and that’s why it’s one of my favorite Disney movies.”

It is one of my favorites, too.
