  1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
  4    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  5        WHEREAS,  the  school shooting on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School
  6    in Littleton, Colorado, during which  fifteen  students  and  a  teacher  were
  7    killed  and  23  other  students  were  wounded, was an event set apart in our
  8    hearts and memories; and
  9        WHEREAS, it behooves each of us, as parents, students, educators and citi-
 10    zens to recognize the lessons to be learned from  this  tragedy  and  identify
 11    changes to prevent repetition; and
 12        WHEREAS,  many organizations, school districts, educators and parents have
 13    publicly expressed concern about the bullying of children; and
 14        WHEREAS, it is important that we acknowledge the serious  issues  and  the
 15    negative  effects  of  bullying,  including  the long-term damage which may be
 16    caused for our youth and the risks of teenage suicide; and
 17        WHEREAS, playground observations identify that at least  one  incident  of
 18    bullying occurs every seven minutes; and
 19        WHEREAS,  bullying  may consist of physical incidents of hitting, kicking,
 20    or choking, verbal threats, teasing and taunting, or systematic exclusion from
 21    activities; and
 22        WHEREAS, providing a safe physical and emotional environment is a signifi-
 23    cant goal and a personal responsibility of each individual; and
 24        WHEREAS, in remembrance of the Columbine shootings, and as a symbol of our
 25    year-round struggle against bullying, it is appropriate that  we  designate  a
 26    week to emphasize the importance of our endeavors.
 27        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
 28    sion of the Fifty-eighth Idaho Legislature, the House of  Representatives  and
