Prevent Bullying

Our organization is here to make a change. Our goal is to raise awareness for bullying and to try to reduce it as much as possible and it would be better if it could be totally prevented. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among kids and teens. About 4,400 deaths per year happen according to the CDC. For every one suicide among kids and teens there are at least 100 suicide attempts. Around 14 percent of high school students have thought about suicide. Our mission is to try to reduce these numbers significantly by making it a big deal so everyone knows what these kids are going through and so they can fully understand what is going on. Also around 56 percent of all students have witnesses a bullying crime take place while at school. Furthermore, there are about 282,000 students that are reportedly attacked in high schools throughout the nation each month. We hope that no one has to see anything like that, let alone experience something like that. Many students can get disorders or messed up in the head from experiencing bullying and that is a long term effect that the student will have to deal with his/her whole life and it is not even their fault. These are only some of the reasons why we need to prevent bullying. Bullying is not okay in any circumstances.

  1. You’re company’s stance on bullying is really good, but I think you could add more information about how you are going to change the problem as a company or group. The statics is surprising to see because I thought the percentages would be much higher than that. Throughout your process of supporting the damaging effect of bullying maybe add some more effects the bullied feel. You could also add additional information on how their attitudes effect other people around them and their families. You could also add in information of suicide hotlines and help they can receive from outside sources. People are damaged severally from bullying so add some more emotional words behind the facts. -Shaylee B.

    I thought your blog was very informative about facts and side effects that come from bullying. The amount of suicides occurring in such a young population is a tragedy in this nation. I was not aware prior to reading this that suicide is the third leading cause of death in teenagers. I feel that bullying is a very important topic that needs to be addressed so that our society knows just how important it is and the truth about the effects that come from bullying. This topic is very important to me because my brother has been bullied throughout his education and it concerns me that his experiences may be leaving lasting effects or trauma on him. I do not want other children to face the same experiences my brother has in a location that should be felt as a safe environment for the best learning possibilities.

    I am very glad that you have created an organization to bring awareness to the negative effects of bullying. I think your blog post was very informative about the issues that bullying causes. I was unaware of how many suicide attempts are made. I am so saddened that people are hurt so badly by bullies that they attempt to take their own lives. I am glad that your organization is taking steps to end the bullying that causes teen suicide. After reading your blog, I have a better understanding of just how severely bullying can affect someone. I have decided that I am also going to progressively work to put an end to bullying. A high school student should never have thoughts of suicide. I am very thankful for your organization’s mission to prevent bullying. I hope that your website will bring a lot of attention to the terrible effects of bullying. I believe in your organization. -Katelynn G.
