Many of you may remember bullying incidents in your youth, and now in adulthood may think it’s just part of growing and it never really affected you. You would be one of the fortunate ones, for bullying has much too do with stunting a child’s emotional and intellectual growth, even if it never has more than minor physical effects.Please take this opportunity to educate yourself about an issue that affects 30%, or more than 5.7 million, of children and youth in the United States because that is how many of them are estimated to be bullies, have been the victims of bullying or both.

It just seems like every year the stories get worse when it comes to children being bullied. I saw on the news a few months ago that a girl committed suicide from being bullied. Then there was the mother who cyber bullied her daughters friend. We are looking for parents, students, and anyone that is interested in helping us on our crusade over the next 65 days to help improve the situation for children of our community. If you are interested or have nay ideas please respond to this post!
