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!

Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because it's important to know and NOT just stand there and watch it happen. Also it's IMPORTANT to know WHEN to tell a adult that you can trust and you know everyone NEEDS to know and LEARN when you SHOULD tell someone. I saw on a disney channel show it said it's NOT tattling if you are telling someone about a bully. YOU have the right to tell someone because if you DON'T it can just get worse for you. It will get BETTER for YOU if you take care of it THEN instead of keeping it in like talk it out or tell someone.

    Justine — Not saying.
  • A few years ago I was bullied and i know how it feels. NO one should be bullied. if you are bullied don't let it hurt you and go tell an adult like your teacher or your parents and remeber they know you aare the better person

    EMILY — WASHINGTON
  • I see bullying everyday and its not just the stereotypical big kid beats up on little kid stuff. I'm a six foot tall, 15 year old girl; and I have been bullied by people way smaller than me for years. Now its not me being bullied, but other people and about EVERYTHING. Racism is coming back strong and everyone laughs and jokes about it. "Its funny" they say... "I wasn't even talking to you"... "Why do you care"... Its wrong and people get hurt that is why I care.

    Catherine — NC
  • I care because no one deserves to be afraid to go to school like I was, and nobody knows that the victim might have a disability or problems at home. I speak from experience..

    Ali — Tennessee
  • I Don't like bullying Because it make's people feel unhappy.And Bullying just make's you get on trouble and you can cause that person that you target not want go to school ever again !!!!!!!

  • I care because i have been bullied is I know how it fills.

“No Match for Me” by Aditi Iyer
Anonymous

Aditi Iyer is a ten year old gifted singer from Delhi, India who is shaping up to be a crossover artiste doing western contemporary and classical songs.

‘No Match For Me’ is a very important song for her as an original recording artiste because despite being only ten, she has also faced the numerous odds that kids face when people (in her case kids from her previous school) are unkind, rude and tease you over things that can make one feel ill at ease. Aditi took her own sweet time to face her struggles and with the help of her mother’s guidance became stronger and now can face anybody as ‘no bully is any match for her inner strength’.

In her words, ‘every child or an adult can be and should be assertive as each person is unique and can stand up for herself / himself. If I can do it, anybody can.’

Aditi is truly grateful to April Knoll and Fred E Jam for believing and choosing her to sing their song.
