I think that it is very important to stand up to bullying. I have been bullied alot through my elementary years, had my shoes thrown into the trash, my head slammed with a dictionary, hit in the chest (many times) and what not. You would think it's only boys that do these kind of rough and violent things, but girls do it too. And they did it to me for years. Always being the smallest, shortest girl in class, I was considered a FREAK. I had some very close friends that treated me well, but no one else ever seemed to like me. From 4th grade to 5th grade, I was bullied every single day by two girls who gained endless fun from doing this. My mom and I talked to the principal about it, and of course, they got away with it, and she did nothing. I remember feeling so worthless thinking, "What kind of person is just treated that way? There must be something wrong with me...." And so on I went through my life, thinking I was worthless and useless until I started to realize that lots of kids are bullied. Perfectly normal kids, like me. No, wait, correction- there is no such word as "normal". If anyone ever tells you something like, "your not normal", the truth is, NOBODY is normal. If you think of it everyone is a bit weird! :) everytime I think of this, it makes me smile. Just know that there is always hope, and everyone is unique and special! This is why I think the bully project is important, to stand up for those who are bullied, to be an UPSTANDER :)
