stop_bullyingThere are a countless number of youths that stay home or stay away from school each month for fear of being bullied or harassed. Bullying is a big problem in today’s schools and in cyberspace.

Modern communications allow and encouraged bullying and harassment to flourish because they are not face to face and people can hide behind false identities. Social networks make it too easy to get personal information about people and use it in an embarrassing and harassing manner.

For more information please visit stopbullying.gov. This website will help you recognize the warning signs and provides you with the education for bullying prevention and resources for those who may have or are being bullied.

Please help those who are to scared or embarrassed to ask for help. Let’s all work to reduce the amount of violence in our writing, speaking, and thinking. Try giving some unexpected kindness to those you meet.

  1. AMEN to this! I was bullied in school, terribly. I defended myself quite a bit though and put the bullies in their place. Note that bullies are insecure and they often target those who are unique and very special. Just think about all the famous celebrities who have shared stories about being bullied.
