“Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.” (www.stopbullying.gov). “A bully is someone who continuosly tries to hurt someone.” (www.mylifemypower.org). I want more people to know that bullying is a serious topic. “Bullying is a serious problem that effects millions of students every day.” (www.kidshealth.org). Bullying is causing young innocent kids to do horrible things to themselves.
The bullies aren't even giving the kids they are harassing a chance to show them what they are really like.
