A couple of months ago in April or May, I was walking home from school. I saw a kid, about twelve, riding his bike. There was an older kid, perhaps fourteen or fifteen, jogging up behind him. At first I thought he was just jogging, but then he knocked the younger kid off of his bike. He kept pushing him around, saying things like "What are you going to do?" and "Come on, defend yourself!" He also called him a b****. The way he pushed and shoved him made so much anger rise within me, and even though I was scared he'd hit me, I tried to go back and talk to him about what he did. Unfortunately, a car full of other teenagers came and picked him up before I could. I walked over to the younger boy, who had just been punched in the eye and asked him if that boy beat him up for no reason. He said yes. I helped him up and asked if he was okay. He said yes. He then just rode off like nothing happened! Some girls came up behind me who were watching the incident. They said that boy got what he deserved. But who deserves that? I'm a girl in school, and I've never been bullied, and neither have my friends, but I've witnessed it before and didn't do anything even though it made me so angry. But that day I tried my best to not just stand there. Later I reported what I saw and the situation was resolved. It never happened again from what I hear. And that makes me happy that I did something.
