Unfortunately, with the rest of the days news, that speech rings quite hollow to me. How can I expect the bullying to stop in schools when when the same president presides over such unmitigated bullying in the international arena?

I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment. As someone who's been bullied and teased for most of my life I know how much extraordinary strength it can build in the victims who survive it, but even so, it's not right. there are better ways to grow strong that don't cause you to grow bitter. Bullying in all it's forms exists because people see it being practiced diplomatic relations, military operations, business, finance, pretty much everywhere. It's not going to stop happening in schools until we accept the fact it happens at all levels of life, and remove it from the top down, setting examples of non bullying all the way down the chain.
