Today is Stomp Out Bullying Day, a day to come together and stand up to bullying.
Each year on the first Monday of October kids, teens, and adults all across the country all across the country wear blue shirts in a show of solidarity against bullying to make that the day that bullying prevention is heard around the world. This important day gives students a unified voice and empowers those who are so often silent to be able to speak out together.
I do not stand for bullying at all, it’s the one thing I do not condone. As a child I was severely bullied because of a car accident that left me scared and I had to learn to control my left side from a stroke. It continued through being a teenager and even as a adult I still get bullied from people.
It was so bad as a teenager that I thought about suicide and doing horrible things to myself. It was just awful. No child should ever have to suffer at the hands of someones jealousy or hate. It’s the worst feeling in the world.
So today put on a blue shirt and sho your support to Stomp Out Bullying. You can get your official Stomp Out Bullying T-shirt here.
