I'm tired of seeing good people get hurt-Warning: this is a rant

Yeah, so, one of my writing center co-workers is being treated unkindly and unfairly by her roommate. Watching her cry broke my heart today. Why do people have to be so mean to people that are kind, honest, openhearted, and all the rest? This girl would never intentionally hurt anyone and yet she is being blamed for a load of bull crap that she would NEVER say or do. The poor girl is being so thrown off by what is going on it's affecting her school work. She is an A student, a wonderful writer, and a hard worker and this girl's BS is bringing her down into a bad place. I hate seeing her like this. She's such a happy, positive, cheery person and this is taking her into a terrible place that does not suit her. I am praying the people who have the power to fix this will do it and make it right. What is happening to her is uncalled for and downright mean.
Ultimately, what I don't understand is why people can't believe that a person can just plain be kind and good. No gimmicks. Nothing fake. It hurts to know that some people cannot believe in that type of a person and endeavor to pull those who are down and make them feel absolutely crappy because they can't. No one deserves that. I wish there was something more I could do for her-but there is only so much. All I can do is be there for her, offer a shoulder to lean on and an open ear. God, I can't stop thinking about the state she was in when I left the meeting twenty minutes ago. It wasn't right. It's heartbreaking.
All right, rant over, as far as this blog goes at least. If you read this, thanks. Redhead out.
Peace
