I am a former victim of bullying. I was bullied from 2nd grade to 7th grade. The bulling only stopped when my family moved to a different city. Due to being bullied I was and still am extemely shy as well as very standoffish with people. I have three beautiful children that are happy and go lucky and I pray everyday that will not be tormented the way I was in school. I teach them everyday that they are somebody and to not let someone get away with being a bully. I also tell them to never be afraid to tell someone what is going on and to make them listen and doing about it. I have also tought them to embrace those that different. My daughter is the defender of those that are bullied. I am proud to say that she stood up for a girl in her school that was being bullied and because of that she and that girl become really good friends. So I would definately stand against bulling if it means that one less kids has to go through what I went through in school. I am so grateful that voice are being heard and that this problem is now becoming recognized and not swept under the rug.
