Unity Day was a great orange success

On Wed., Oct 22nd, the world came together to unite against bullying!

Here are a few Unity Day highlights:

  • At Ramstein Intermediate School, the lunchroom served orange colored food and a military unit provided 900 orange cookies for students. Even their jaguar mascot, Spots, dressed in orange.
  • Heritage High School in California had their 2nd annual Unity Flash Mob.
  • More than 550 students from Washington Elementary School in Washington celebrated by joining hands around their school and reciting their bully pledge.
  • AD Johnston High School in Michigan created an art piece to be displayed in their school. Each student, staff and board member decorated a popsicle stick and all the sticks were put into one piece of art to show that we are all individuals and together we create a larger beautiful piece of art.

Other celebrations across the country included a mix-it up lunch, pep rallies, paper chains of unity, and morning announcements. Unity Day celebrations also went international in Argentina, Mexico, Taiwan, United Kingdom and Canada. Thanks again to everyone who came together this year to show one giant message of support, hope and unity. When we stand together, no one stands alone!

  • Dear young people.When i was in middle school, I was bullied horribly. Every day at school was torture. I never knew what i had done to deserve it, and the kid who lead the bullying had been my good friend. It seemed that everyone hated me, and told me so every day.One day, after a social studies lesson about clicques, i realized that i wasn't the only person going through this. I stopped caring what my former friends did or thought.Suddenly one day, i went to school and they knew I didn't care about the bullying anymore.And just like that, the bullying stopped.I became friends with the "un-cool" kids who were terrific, kind people. They saved me.And guess what? I'm old now, and I've had a really fun, happy, wonderful life, with great friends, great travel, good work, and people who love me as i love them. Please, please, remember- there is a wonderful world and a good life waiting for you. Bullying is not forever. You are valuable, and you can endure. Think beyond the place you are now! Think of the good you can give this world!Never ever give up! eileen

  • Bulling sucks. It just needs to end. I have been bullied many times, but I spoke to my Guidance teacher and she helped us, and now we are close friends. All you have to do is SPEAK UP. No one wants to be bullied, so if you see someone being bullied, DON'T just stand there thinking, "Oh. Well, I want to help, but, it's none of my business. I should leave them alone..." And then walk away! No! Step up, and help! If it gets physical, contact a teacher/adult that you know will help. Bulling should have never been invented. Now, Candy Waffles should be!

    Please join us un the fight of bulling. Thank You. And, you do matter.

  • I suffered bullyng from a very young age. I was 4 years old and from then until a year ago people bothered me for my height and thiness. They told me giraffe and lanky many times. People actually talk in secret about me. They look at me as an alien or something like that. When I was younger, I cried many times. I start wanting to die, because people told me that I was so ugly, and I believed it. I wanting to die. I start to see that I'm not ugly, that I can be more. My dram is to be a model. Because some people actually say that it could be a great deal for me. I really want to feel good, pretty, special .

  • I care about bullying as no one deserves to be bullied. After a while of being bullied you get depression and then you can go down all different paths. I have been bullied since I was a very young girl and still love to help other people out with bullying. No one deserve to be bullied.

Stop it

Hi, I’m almost 14, Polish girl and this is my story. I’ve always been really shy. When I was in kindergarden, I had a lot of friends actually, but also there was a one girl that I was afraid of. She wasn’t doing anything to me, but I was just scared. Then, when I stared school when I was 7, I was a lot more confident. I had a lot of friends and I wasn’t care about this girl that was in my kindergarden and now she’s in the same class as me. And then I started 6th grade. Things starts to be a lot more harder to me. This girl is really popular in my school. A lot of people hate her, but no one ever said her how rude and mean to others she is. Anyways. I’m really trying to ignore her but it doesn’t work. Everytime I’m hearing that she’s talking about me, I want to cry. When she walking in the way I’m in, I’m walking away. When she’s staring at me during the lesson, I’m trying to act like I’m not seeing her and I’m writing something in my notebook. She’s always like "Why are walking away? Why are you can’t stop writing? Why are you’re hiding from me?", she’s saying that while laughing and making fun of me, because she knows that I feel uncomfortable and sad. That not all of what she’s doing but it’s not that important right now.

I’ve always wanted to ask her, why she’s doing that to me. I it really that funny? Even if I’m only standing, sitting, fixing my hair or even talk to my closest friend, she could laugh at it. Everyone who knows it are saying that I need to tell the teacher or my parents. But what if she will find out and turn my last days of school into hell? People are saying ‘Just ignore her, she’ll get bored about it’, but it doesn’t work. Now, I’m having social anxiety because of her
Now, I’m even trying to not sleep, because I know that tomorrow is next day, and another reason to cry. Bullies from all of the world needs to know how painful their words are, and realize that’s not cool when you’re bullying someone who is more shy or just diffrent. That all needs to stop…
