Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“Hazing is any activity expected of someone joining or participating in a group that humiliates, degrades, abuses, or endangers them regardless of a person’s willingness to participate.” (Allan/Madden)

Quote #2

“Hazing does not equal team unity, loyalty, brotherhood, sisterhood, fellowship, strength, honor, dignity, or respect. What it does equal though is abuse and any way you look at it, it will never add up to anything else but abuse.” (Andrew Arthur Dawson)

Quote #3

“We’re very early in this movement to address the most common form of violence there is for children, which is bullying, and hazing is a type of bullying. Hazing in children is caused by adults, through modeling hazing behavior and responding inadequately when it occurs. That creates hazing.” (Stuart Green)

Bonus Quote

“Hazing is an extraordinary activity that, when it occurs often enough, becomes perversely ordinary as those who engage in it grow desensitized to its inhumanity.” (Hank Nuwer)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
