Hi, my name is Michael. I am 13 years old, and I have also experienced a little of bullying over 6th grade. I am now in 7th grade. In 5th grade it started when my good friend Timmy started to tease my other good friend Brendan, by calling him offensive names like dumbo, idiot, and moron. You know stuff like that. And Brendan never and I mean never stood up for himself. It made me sick just watching that. I even tried to encourage him to do so, but still continued to be silent. And it stayed like that for the rest of the year. Honestly, I did not stick up for him. I regret it today. If I could go back in time I'd stand by his side and defend him. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! And it's the movie BULLY that gave me this inspiration. But I'll talk about that later.
Then in 6th it was totally different. Here is when my story begins. First, Brendan started to make fun of me if he thought I said something he thought was stupid, and he started to call me names. Just like Timmy did to him. Then later, Timmy started to do the same thing to me. I think the reason why Brendan started to tease me was because of Peer Pressure. I even stood up for myself a few times, but still they pursued to tease. I felt total be-trail.
Now today in 7th grade, things are again, different. All we do is tease each other in fun. It's not even offensive to me anymore.
Ever since I have seen the movie BULLY I felt an explosion of inspiration go off in my heart to help victims who are bullied! I take the pledge!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH for the inspiration. It means the whole world to me.
And for the people who wrote they’re sad stories I hope you NEVER get bullied AGAIN and I wish I were there to support you against the bullies.
And who ever made the BULLY PROJECT, bless you. In my opinion it was the most wonderful idea ever!
