What do you do, when you sit everyday in silence, witnessing a tragedy in the making. you watch one boy, getting laughed at, getting mocked, being egged on until he does things he never wanted to do in the first place.

who do you tell? teachers sit back and watch, some laugh along, some pretend they don't see, some pay no attention. they don't want to deal with it. out higher school powers play videos, give lectures, etc.. It doesn't work, and I'm pretty sure they know this. So why don't they try to do something more?
Why? Because the ones who bully, the ones who are the people to blame, are people like the captain of the softball team. Star football players, straight A, "example" students. Some people see this, and no justice is served, because when punishment is given, those star students can't play, they can't show what our school is made of. But why would they want to? 
Sometimes the places that are supposed to be our "safe" places. Our home away from home. The places filled with people that help us grow, learn, live, love, etc.. they really disgust me sometimes. From all this, things that happen when people let things go "unnoticed" are tragic. School shootings... suicides... and other violent acts come of this. AND the really amazing thing is how the people that let & cause these terrible things to happen are the ones who think hard, and just can't seem to realize why situations like this come about.

So, what would you do?

Unfortunately that is true. Bullying happens and it truly sucks. I should try to speak up for bullying because when I got bullied, no one stood up for me until it had gone on for a while.

Have a nice day :)!

Oh my God, you're soooo right!
My teachers always stress the "no bullying" crap, but when it's happening, they don't pay attention, and when they do, it's the kid who has been bullied, and finally defends him/herself. That's what middle school is.

I was just thinking the same thing today, about this kid in my class. I always feel awful for him, but I'm too shy to say or do anything.

You have a voice. You stand up when everyone else hides you speak the truth.
