    Matthew Tapia was born 3 months pre-mature, a mere 1.5 pounds. Doctors gave him a 5% chance of survival, and if he was able to defy the odds he would barely be able to speak or even walk. A film about the power of never giving up.

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

  • Some might say that bullying is survival of the fittest, that bullying is only words that can cause no physical harm, it is being human, however I beg to differ. Human? H-honorable U-understanding M-motivating A-accepting N-nurturing. This is what human means to me. We no longer live in Medieval, Barbaric times, so why do we act like it? I am the lead chair for my company's Diversity & Inclusion team and we cover topics like this every month, the reason is not only to educate people but to keep this topic and others like it at the forefront, to keep it fresh in our minds so we may always remember that we are human and what that represents.

  • 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, because you never know what people are going through in this world. You never know if they cry themselves to sleep at night, or what they have to live with everyday. I care, because everyone needs somebody that will be always by their side, someone to count on. The best thing is knowing you have a friend who loves you and makes you feel loved even when no one around you does.

End bullying!
Taylor
Age 25

My name is Taylor. I am 25 years old and studying to achieve my second degree at a University here in Montana. I posted my relationship with my long-time, on/off boyfriend on a social media website. The next day there were two comments on the status from his sister and ex girlfriend encouraging him to dump me. I deleted the comments and messaged the girls letting them know that those comments would not be tolerated on my posts. I received several extremely hurtful messages from both girls. Both girls’ names and profile pictures would be blocked out for privacy purposes. My goal in sharing my story is simply to add another voice to the growing thunderous roar that will become the bullying prevention campaign. Let’s rid the world of bullying forever!
