Bullying: Take a Stand and Lend a Hand

   Hello I am Hannah. I'm eleven years old, and I am one of the many victims of bullying. 
As many people know, bullying increases rapidly each and every day throughout the globe. So I am here to share about my very own "Bullying Bonanza!" 
I was in the fourth grade and there was a girl named Raven, whom for some reason decided to target me to bully. Raven had called me rude names, talked about my father(which is no longer apart of my life) to my face, tried to get some of my closest friends to turn their backs towards me and be cruel to me, but worst of all Raven would push and hit me.  This made me ashamed of myself, and made me feel as though no one wanted me on this planet. That was until I talked to my mom who calmly told me she would call my teacher and talk to him about this problem. When she did, my teacher pulled Raven and I outside of the class room where he told us not to fight because fighting was for babies. After many days of being pulled outside to talk about our problem my teacher sent Raven and I to the school counselor. There we had to sign a contract which stated we would be kind to one another. However bringing the counselor in to our problem made Raven even more mad than ever. The next day Raven came after me in the hallway swinging a heavy science book aiming to hit me. Unfortunately Raven and I were the only people in the hallway, I had no choice but to..... Stand up to her! Ever since I did we have been good friends. I know this may not solve all bully cases. But there is still a 50/50 percent chance it will. So if you are being bullied or you see some one being bullied, be like me and take a stand.

  1. Good for you Hannah! I hope more kids will follow your advice.

  2. Way to go, Hannah! You're a role model for others who are being bullied. <3

  3. This is a very good blog post, Hannah! You gave concrete ways to deal with being bullied. Have you thought of submitting this post to the editor of your local newspaper to be published as an editorial piece? I think they, and lots of kids and parents, would appreciate reading it. My only editorial comment (as an editor, LOL) would be to submit it aligned left instead of centered and to enter paragraph breaks where you start a new paragraph. That make it easier for the eyes to read :-)

    1. Thank you Lisa! I never thought to turn it in to a newspaper, I'll ask my mom about it. Thank you for your advice.

  4. Hannah you are awesome, just like your Mom! No one deserves to be bullied and it takes a lot to stand up for just remember how strong you were in that moment when you did, you keep it in you that in any situation YOU are strong and brave and you stand up for what is'll go far in life! *hugs*
