For several years, I got bullied over the internet and in person. Heck, I've been bullied for my whole life. My friends would just say, "just ignore them, don't let them bother you". Ha, easier said than done. Once, a kid spat on me around 10 times, while there were several people around. I was mad, but the real thing that ticked me off was the response the witnesses showed. Not one of them helped, at all. They just watched. I get mad so many times, it's like breathing to me. My friends use to hear students taunting harsh words about me, and just laugh along. But the next day, they'd get made fun of, expecting me to cheer them up. How can you help someone out if they won't help you? So I want to make a difference. If I witness someone bullying another, I'm going to defend the kid getting bullied. I bet if you got bullied you'd want someone to stick up for you. So why not try helping others first?
