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!

  • I will never forget the pain of mer being bullied as a child in junior high school it was not fun and i think no one should never have to go threw what i did

  • bulling is not the right path so chose the right path no mater what.

    Dylan — 14
  • I care because I was bullied for superficial stuff. My hair is red. This is because of genes me parents passed down to me, not anything I did guys. People say, "Gingers have no souls" or even that "Gingers will steal your soul". Frankly, this is not only outrageous but it doesn't even make sense. I no longer raise my hand in class very often and I flinch a lot when ever someone I don't really know gets very close to me. Bullying made me this way, I want it to stop. Stand up for others guys.

  • my name is mackenzie and i am 13 years old and my family moved to this new neighborhood and i met this boy named zach and we went out for about 3 days then he broke up with me and he has bullied me every since. like i am scared to go to school now because he has ma my life hell

    mackenzie — 13
  • I never knew bullying existed. I saw sarcastic jokes here and there but that was until severe bullying happened to me. I have been through everything from guys at my school from getting punched in the stomach to being told to hang myself. What I have to remind myself every time is I have friends and a family that loves me. Instead of making it a negative, I turn it into a positive by helping others. So to all of those bullied out there stay strong and know people are there to help.

Struggle
Emma

When I was in 3rd,4th, and 5th grade, I was bullied. I was I the counselor’s office almost everyday. I was afraid to go to class, afraid to go to lunch, afraid to face my bully. Finally one year, my bully stopped. But that wasn’t the end, this year another bully emerged. She would call me a "snake", told me I was "fake", and annouce to the whole entire class, she was irritated at me. I felt so alone and I felt depressed. At one point, I felt like giving up . She would say " THANK GOD THOSE SNAKES ARE GONE!" when me and my friend sat at a different table. It hurt a lot. She still bullies me today. But I’m not letting it get in my way. I’m gonna stay strong and keep my head held high.
