If you didn't read my original post on bullying, go here. The San Francisco Chronicle just published an update on this story yesterday. Read Another 1,400 Sympathetic Notes for Bullied Girl.
More significantly, though, note in the comments of my original entry on this subject that the mother of Olivia Gardner has posted a comment.
Ms. Gardner: Thank you for stopping by and clarifying the circumstances under which Olivia has left school. I'm glad to hear people are letting her know she's not alone, but am equally disheartened to hear that neither the parents of nor the kids who have bullied her have stepped up and apologized.
Please let Olivia know that I send my best wishes her way.
