“I am an anomaly in the world of the bullied. So many kids are are affected so deeply by bullying that the cuts never even turn into scars. They walk around with wounds that are opened again and again until they have nothing left to bleed out. They are pushed closer and closer to the edge by every word and many of them eventually fall. And the thing is, we can’t put this all on the kids who turn into bullies. Many of those kids are in just as much pain as the bullied. If we want to take steps toward creating a world where kids leave school without massive amounts of scaring, we have to start creating a society where social policing of gender, fashion, interests, capability, color, status and self-expression no longer runs rampant in our streets.”
Don’t forget to wear pink tomorrow (April 10) to show support for anti-bullying efforts.
