Although I am 23 now, I still remember how awful I felt to be bullied. When I was in grade school, another classmate took it upon himself to constantly punch me and call me fat. There were numerous days when I didn't want to go to school, because I knew what awaited me. The principal of the elementary school at the time never made an effort to put an end to the bullying. I have an 11 year old brother who has recently become the victim of bullying. My mom has talked to the principal numerous times, but still nothing has been done. It hurts to know my little brother is experiencing the same pain I had to endure how many years ago. What is even more sad is how many schools refuse to acknowledge that bullying is a serious issue, and the only way to combat it is to take a stand, and have zero tolerance for it in schools.
