Bullying is an ongoing issue that everyone seems to ignore and not put their full emotions and attention to. If you think about it, bullying has come to the point where the deaf can see and the blind can hear. Lives of innocent people are being taken away due to the fact that some cold-hearted person thinks it’s extremely okay to make someone else feel so worthless and horrible about them selves. People don’t feel the pain kids have to go through. Mainly, nobody really does anything about it and that’s the worst thing ever. As I type this, my anger is rising and tears are just being forced to be held back from rolling down my cheeks and splashing onto my key bored, this is why I strongly believe something has to be done about bullying.
In class we have watched a documentary or a movie called “Bully”. Before watching I have seen my sister watch the movie before. I was only able to see snippets from the movie and just by seeing such short scenes; I couldn’t bear to watch the whole movie. But just my luck, we watched it in class. I had no idea that I was going to be sitting in a class hearing parents voices shake and their eyes get glossy from their tears just by talking about the painful stories that their son or daughter had to face. You can see the pain all over their face when they had to retell the story of how there son or daughter took their own lives just because bullies made their life a living hell. Kids were being stabbed by pencils, called fish face, being called stupid, having teachers make fun of him or her in front of the whole class just because he or she is gay. And the world thinks its okay to have bullying going on with no solution?
What I would like to see schools do is expel bullies. Why expulsion? Simply because schools claim that they want to have a “Bully Free Zone”. If the staff were to make the students know that they are here for them, then kids who are being bullied will feel some what better to tell someone. Kids that are being bullied have their voices be lowered as their hope for better days fade away. Once when the bullies are expelled, the kids will feel a lot safer at school and other kids are not being at risk of also being bullied by the same person. People need to realize that kids will take their life away due to bullying and we need to take away their cause for suicide. No one deserves to walk around earth feeling worthless. Everyone should be able to look in the mirror and feel like gold.--written by L. Avila, 11th grade
