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

  • More awareness on exactly what is bullying. Most people don't even know what bullying is.

  • i care because i have been bullied to the point where i didn't think highly of myself and i didnt like how i looked

  • My story starts in first grade, when i visited a new school. It was fine the first few weeks, then people use to tag me and then run away saying Dylan germs and tagging someone. It hurt for a long time, then in fifth grade I wouldn't give up my line in dodge ball so I got punched in the eye. Then as I moved to a new school, I begin to think of my self not as a person that is deserved of loved. I was told constantly how weak i was (emotionally). Then as I entered High School I was more active in school, I had a dream of getting in NHS by my Junior Year. Well as my freshman year progress, I can't believe the people i used to hang out with was not actually my friend. They belong in a group that judges you terribly and then when you sit there depressed they ask you what is wrong. As I entered Sophomore year, I didn't know who to trust. Until, I made a friend from a different school, she was the only person i allowed myself to trust then she left me like everyone else. So I begin not to trust people, I believed that no one would be proud of my achievements or just enjoy me. No one wanted me around so I become quiet. Then as i entered my Junior year, people stilled didn't like me, but i harden myself. I forced myself to be strong no matter how bad their words hurt. I refused to let them see how bad they got me. Well I got accepted into NHS, and there ended up a bunch of people who found ways to make fun of that too. I don't even know what there is so wrong with me. I enjoy spn, Dr.who, sherlock, and merlin. I love to read. Also, I love to make people happy, but they just end up hurting me back. I question constantly what the point of me is, but everyone no matter how bad they got it was not born thinking they are a loser it is the world around them that made them this way. Everyone is beautiful in my opinion and my biggest goal is to end bullying.

  • I've been a victim of bullying since 3rd grade.I always try to change myself because of other people think of me. They always call me cruel names and insult me every day and I have emotional issues because of it. But now I feel like a superstar because I realize you don't need to care what other people think of you. People are beautiful in their own way and everyone is a somebody because they're already a somebody on their own. Bullying is not cool and all you have to do is speak up. I hope everybody is reading this because they are super superstars on their own and you are perfect in their own way!

  • i know what it feels like to get bullied....people make fun of me about the music i listen too, and what i wear. Getting bullied puts lots of pressure on you... and bullying caused me to cut myself...so i care .

  • People don't deserve to be bullied we are all different just because a bully doesn't like himself or herself doesn't mean to destroy another's life. Being nice is a lot easier than being mean. More people should be leaders and stand up instead of being followers. Be a leader and stand up even if you lose "friends". For it if they were your friends they wouldn't leave they'd stick by your side the victim will always be a better friend than the bully.

I have been getting bullied at school not For how i look dress or act but just because somw girls likes my boyfriend ️️and tried to break is up but i told Them to stop i thought jt was over but i got mean messages ans snapchats about how im a ugly Fat a slut and much more. I Blocked Them but they made new accounts and they kept bothering me. At first ut was only online but it git brought to school and now The teachers get me to talk and apologize to the bullies. Why? I didn’t do anything to them. It stopped for a few days but then I was sitting in history doing my work with 2 of my friends and I felt a pencil hit my head. I thought it was my friend messing with me then I felt another one so I turned around and I saw a boy that is friends with the girls that have been messing with me laughing with the girls and he picked up the pencil. I got hit in the back of the head around 30-40 times the i asked to leave and go to the bathroom as I go to leave I get hit again and then called a f****** b**** by one of the girls. I looked sad the rest of the day a lot of people asked what’s wrong I just murmered im okay. After lunch I cried during my whole math class and said my head hurt but in reality I was tired of being picked on and I don’t want to get kicked off sport teams for soemthing so stupid. No matter where I go they follow and I don’t want to live my life thinking that someone is always gonna put me down. I try to stay positive but it’s hard im almost to the breaking point of shutting down my phone. I get stressed out easily and Im only 14. That’s not good im not sharing my story to win the Mac I just want people to know that there not alone and they have to stay positive and keep there heads up high. I have friends but no one really knows what’s going on… Im not popular but im an athlete i take my school and sports serious but one thing I hate is bullying.
