I grew up in Knoxville, Iowa. And for a while I watched as kids got bullied and I didn't do anything. Then one day I started to get bullied because my shoes had a hole in them and I got to feel how it felt. I was in 5th Grade. I then pledged to myself that I will never stand by again. Even though I wasn't bullied extensively, it doesn't take much to feel the pain. I then moved up to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Here is where I saw larger amounts of bullying. It was a bigger city. And since I've moved up here I've been friends to those who don't have any. I've stood up for those who can't. And I will as long as I live. I want you to know that there are more like me. Just look for them. You're not alone and will never be. But most importantly don't become the bully. Get together with others that are getting bullied and ban together. Strength in numbers. Bullies won't bother you and if they do stand up for each other. Have each others back and don't be afraid to say something. If you think you're being a tattle-tale your wrong. Telling someone will make a difference and by telling them you can get help. Don't do this alone, lets do it together.
