As bullying gets worse and worse, I've come to realize how bad it actually is. Every time I see someone at school in the halls (popular-unpopular) getting bullied it just enrages me. There is one specific kid I can't stand to see bullied. He is an autistic kid named Caleb and is in my homeroom class. I have gone to school with him in the past and seen him bullied before. These boys (that are also in my homeroom) always laugh and say mean things to him everyday that he comes in late. One day, I finally stood up and said "Stop! Stop messing with him. You would not want anyone saying things about you...would you!?" (Mind you, they got pretty silent). I went on to say..."Treat people the way you would like to be treated." I turned to Caleb and said "Ignore them, they're just immature". A big smile lit up on his face. It made me feel pretty good.
Now that I have seen the 'Foundation for a Better Life' commercials they have encouraged me to 'pass it on...'
