Lets stop

Why do we get cyber bullied? What is the point? How come we just ignore all the things that happen around us and only focus on the more visible problems. 60% of middle school students say that they have been bullied but only 16% of teachers believe that their students are being bullied. Think of it 3/5 of students are getting bullied ether getting Cyber bullied, Physical bullied or verbal bullied none of them are positive and is a lose lose situation. So how come this has all started? How come we just let it go;linger around the school and infect our students. I say we take a stand, make a difference, show the bully who's boss. Why watch our kids turn into miserable victims or selfless bullies we need to stop!
