This is a nationwide attempt to stop bullying. No one should be put down, teased, degraded or harassed simply for being different. We should all embrace differences and be empathetic.
I was bullied when I was young. In high school, a girl named Karen would pick on me. One day when I was walking home form the bus stop, she had a group of people surround me and she demanded I fight her. I did not want to fight. I was not one to be confrontational. I stood there, scared, hugging my books to my chest. She knocked them from my hands. The crowd was chanting, "Fight! Fight!"
Then, out of the crowd, a girl stepped forward. She stood between me and Karen and announced, "If you want her you are going to have to go through me first." Karen backed off. My savior led me away from the crowd and introduced herself--Maria M. Maria became my friend after that. She was actually like a protector, for no one ever bullied me again. She even would screen guys for dating later on! I was always thankful; that she stepped up at that moment. She made a big difference in my life.
