Fear: Giving voice to the silent victims of violence in schools With bullying being a key topic in every school, children's literature often promotes stories of defeating bullies at their own games. That does not always happen, and not every student can morph into the Karate Kid. This article is focussed on the unfortunate childhood witnesses of violence who are not physically injured, but nonetheless experience fear for their own safety. This experienced violence can happen at home, at school, and at the shops. In fact, it can happen anywhere. However, without exhibiting bleeding wounds or bruises, or severe shock, these child victims are usually overlooked as the more "serious" cases, the immediate victim and the perpetrator, are triaged by rushing school staff.
