If I could earn a living from doing one thing I would want to bring more awareness to bullying. Bullying is an issue that we are aware of. However, I don’t think that it is being taken seriously. Every time I’m on YouTube or facebook there are posts or new videos of young men and women fighting or I see stories about teens being cyber bullied. The part that really gets me is that instead of people trying to stop the fights they are recording these fights and posting them on the web for the world to see this. Bullies come in all shapes, sizes and colors. When I was in high school my own cousin took his life because he was being bullied. Not just him but I have read many stories of young adults taking their lives because they are being bullied. Bullying needs to stop, people don’t understand the seriousness of this violent act. A mother and father has lost a son or daughter, A sibling has lost a brother or sister, a friend has lost a friend and they list goes on. The bottom line is bullying is a serious problem that needs to be addressed. We need to take a stand and put an end to this violent act. My message may not change the entire world but if what I have to say touches a few people it would be worth my efforts to bring awareness to this issue.
