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 am always being bullied one time or another. This website is awesome !

  • I was bullied from 4th to 8th grade, and it had disastrous effects on my self esteem and abilities to communicate with others. Nobody should ever be treated that way. I want everybody to feel as happy as I do now that I'm not being bullied anymore.

  • I was bullied when I was in my gradeschool, boys and even girls pick on me. I never really had a friend and all i did back then was just cry & take all the insults in. Until I reached my highschool, I started to get myself altogether , i did become confident but in a bad way where I became a bully myself & did bully someone. when I reached my 2nd yr of HS, I decided to change, repent of what I did. and then I started to help those other teens at my school against those who bully them (it's like good bully vs bad bully). I was happy that i could help and now that I am in college finishing a degree I will never stop & try to help those who are in need.

  • When I went into middle school there was a boy who everyone just "decided" to pick on. He would always sit alone at lunch and never once had a friend to call his own. But I never said a word. I was too scared to lose my friends... I was too selfish to help someone in need. A few years later I remembered how many times this boy had tried to talk to me... it made me cry thinking of how alone he must of felt like. Never again will I EVER let anyone decide who is " worthy" enough to be happy and have friends. And I want others to learn from my mistake. When you see someone down on the ground, have the courage to be the hand that picks them up.
