It’s been happening forever, and it still exists today 
There are no signs of demise 
Only too much suffering.

Bullying affects those who are bullied, but they’re not alone 
Those who bully are victims 
Even witnesses are victims.

The effects of bullying are damaging to all 
Mental health, substance abuse, and even suicide 
There is no limit to its impact.

Knowing what is considered bullying is very important 
Threats, spreading rumors, physical and verbal aggression 
They’re all examples of bullying.

Knowing why people bully is also important 
Whether it be social or family issues, power, or cultural 
It must be confronted.

We don’t have to run from witnessing bullying. 
It’s important to talk to others about it 
You can save someone’s life.

We must stand up to bullying. 
Tell someone, stand strong, and do not show any weakness. 
You can make it.  You can do it.
