It’s been happening forever, and it still exists today

There are no signs of demise

Only too much suffering.

Bullying affects those who are bullied, but they’re not alone

Those who bully are victims

Even witnesses are victims.

The effects of bullying are damaging to all

Mental health, substance abuse, and even suicide

There is no limit to its impact.

Knowing what is considered bullying is very important

Threats, spreading rumors, physical and verbal aggression

They’re all examples of bullying.


Knowing why people bully is also important 

Whether it be social or family issues, power, or cultural

It must be confronted.


We don’t have to run from witnessing bullying.

It’s important to talk to others about it

You can save someone’s life.


We must stand up to bullying.

Tell someone, stand strong, and do not show any weakness.

You can make it. You can do it.
