What does a 15-year-old in Connecticut who shot himself, an 11-year-old who strangled himself, and a college student who went on a killing spree in Virginia have in common? They were victims of bullying.
In all parts of the globe, somewhere right now, a child is being bullied. They may be children whose faces are being shoved on the toilet seat or they may be the subject of nasty rumors and gossip. School is supposed to be a fun place. It should be the last place where kids should be afraid of. How come it turns out to be the opposite? It’s an issue that until now, schools have problems dealing with. It’s an issue that may stay until the next 100 years but we can help avoid bullying in school.
Let’s make all people fit in. Let us not define a person by their social class or by their appearance. Schools should be the last place when it comes to close-mindedness. If you see acts of bullying in school whether it’s during class hours or not, seek help from the school. If you are a victim, do no hesitate to tell a trusted adult. You should not let your health and happiness suffer. Take charge of your life and don’t be the victim, not now, not tomorrow. Spot it and stop it.
