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 used to be bullied off and on growing up... Still growing and having been born with mild/moderate Cerebral Palsy ("CP") it hasn't been an easy journey... And it's far from over... Being born with what I prefer to be called a "Special Need" not a "Disability/Handicap" is something I have to deal with and handle every day of my life... I would get picked at/on and it was never fun... Thank Ya'll and other organizations and people that support Anti-Bullying!Mandy xoxo

  • I have never been bullied before. But I have stoped it when ever I could. If I couldn't stop it right then I would always tell a adult. One day after school I was about to leave and walk home but when I was leaveing the building I saw "Big Ben" he was choking a kid much smaller than him. When I saw it I just froze I didn't know what to do, my first instinct was to run so I did. Right when I ran out the door I started to cry the hardest I have ever cried before. I automatically ran inside and couldn't find him so I ran to the office and told the counselor. He told me that he has talked to "Big Ben" about this before and would talk to him again. I went home and thought of all the times that I have seen people being bullied and stoped it but I couldn't this time. To this day I think about it often and I feel terrible about it.

  • I was never a victim of bullying, but I've seen it happened. It hurts my heart to know that people get picked on for no reason because of the way they look, how they talk, what they wear, etc. If I ever see anyone get picked on, I always be the right person and tell the other person, No that not cool, or nice, and to even leave the person getting pick on alone. People have feelings and no one likes getting left alone. You really got to put yourself in the victim's shoes. Wouldl you like to get treated like that? How would you feel? But overall I'm just totally against bullying & I'm 100% all for the prevention center thing. It truely does make a difference in some peoples lives.

  • Bullying is something really bad, and its really sad that its actually spreading in this world. bullying can cause some really bad issues, like eating disorders, self harm, bullemia and many other stuff, bullying should be stopped. if you're reading this and you have EVER been bullied, i just want you to know, that you're beautiful and you're worthy of life. and whatever those bullies told you, i just want you to know that its not true, and that i love every single person who's reading this, stay strong.

Somebody Has To Stop Bullying

OK. I’ll tell the short version. I’m 13 years old and 170 cm 64 kilo. (And I’m from Turkey). So many people bullied me and they’re still doing that. Joking about me, calling fat, ugly and more. I sucked at my lessons because of them. I’m talking to myself and thats insane. I have a normal kilo but I’m not like "Victoria’s Secret Angels" so I’m trying lose weight. I’m always (at home, secretly) crying. At school, no one cares. At home my paremts already have no idea about I’m crying. I’ll go to hospital for my problems. And I know that bullying has to end. Jokes should be funny but they’re not.
