One Child - Two Voices
Bullies, harassment and assaults are running rampant in Schools. Harassment,
teasing, rivalry, ridicule, emotional or physical violence can lead to
depression and low self-esteem, problems that can traumatize a child into
adulthood and affect a student, and their family, for the rest of their
life. The act of being bullied tends to increase some student/victims'
isolation because their peers do not want to lose status by associating
with them, or because they do not want to increase the risks of being bullied
Here are some facts about bullying:

Ninety percent of students felt being bullied caused social, emotional,
or academic problems.
Each year, 1 out of 13 kids under the age of 19 attempt suicide, a rate

succeeded — a staggering number that can be blamed largely on bullying.
Victims are mostly boys, but girls are increasingly being bullied. Bullying
is reported as most severe in grades 7-9 with 4-6 next.
Sixty-nine percent of students believe schools respond poorly to reports
of bullying and victimization.

According to Webster's Dictionary, the definition of a bully is:
an over-bearing person who tyrannizes the weak; intimidation. The definition
of terror is: extreme fear; one who causes terror; to rule by intimidation.
When a child is being bullied they know what a terrorist is... they experience
it everyday at school.
When a child is being bullied and no one comes to their aid, that child
feels like their school doesn't value them as an individual. There are
a lot of frustrated, hurt, and wounded children coming out of our schools
today and we have let our children down by not doing anything to stop the

When my son died by suicide as a direct result of bullying in his school,
my grief was beyond words. Now, I wish to do all I can to prevent another
parent from going through that same pain. Bullying, depression and suicide
has no boundaries, no political party, no unseen agenda. It doesn't matter
what sexual orientation, religion, color, stature, weight or height a student is; There is no excuse for bullying, and no
one deserves to be bullied!
