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

  • 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 don't like bullying because its a waste of time. Bullying is a big thing here in Hawai'i. People bullying each other because they are going through something with their family. A lot of parents here teach their kids to be tough. The tougher kids bully the kids who seem weak JUST because. I'm gonna be honest though... I'm a bully AND the bullied. I bully people because i've been bullied all my life. People all around the world bully each other because they've been bullied at sometime in their life. I bully others for the same reason everyone else does. I bully because I'm being bullied and I want to know how it feels to be on the other side of the glass. I want to feel cool like all the other bullies. Bullying is just a waste of time though. It won't change a thing. I've learned that the hard way.

  • when I was in middle school I was a bully But once I went to high school I seen other kids getting bullied and it made me realize that it was wrong so I began to stick up for the kids that got bullied because I was seeing the effect it had on the kids around me.There is hope out there the reason I'm writing this is for the kids that get bullied seek help and the kids that watch them get bullied stop watching and do something what if that person was you or your brother or sister or even worse your kid bullying has to stop.

  • I want to stop bullying because I think no one deserves to be bullied. I know how it hurts to be bullied. I was bullied once. Bullying hurts. It needs to stop. That is why I want to stop bullying.

  • I care because I have been bullied for 1/3 of my life. I understand all forms of bullying, and I wish to help those who need to be helped. If someone had been there for me when I was being bullied, things might have been different, so that's why I'm working hard to help out anybody I can.

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.
