Tell Us Why You Care

  • I have personal experience of being seriously bullied myself throughout my time at Secondary School. A great deal of it took place online as well as on in school. People would put (bad) photos up on Facebook without my permission where they'd then all scoff and jeer at me in the comments. It felt absolutely humiliating to just go through school being treated as one big joke. I also had people go "UGH!" when they'd walk past me and had a group of girls aggressively corner me when I had not long been in the school. I would even have strangers, mutual friends of the bullies, add me on Facebook and then troll my wall then put more bad photos of me up on their profile without my permission. All this serious bullying I received still haunts me and my self-esteem to this day, but has also caused me to empathize with the issue of bullying deeply. I hate bullying so much, it makes me absolutely sick to the stomach and just wish an end could be put to it somehow!!

  • My son has been bullied to the point of assault because of his disability... I tell him everyday no matter what they do stay kind... today the people in our community call him a Beacon of Hope because he stands up to the bullies and he fights back! He has started his own after school club call the gentlemen's club where he in a bunch of his buddies get together they have an educator who teaches them etiquette how to look people in the eyes how to shake hands they dress nice and they stand up for what is right! They know they are not alone and that our whole Community is watching them! They're no longer afraid they stand together they stand tall and proud! Do not be afraid of your bully do not be afraid to talk to someone you can trust about the bullying and get help if you need it! I not only stand by my son but I stand by all children being bullied and will fight for you!!!
