A student at my elementary was being harshly bullied every day at school. She thought there was nothing she could do about the teasing, name-calling, gossiping, and hundreds of notes with horrible messages on them. I reached out to her; she was an amazing girl, sweet, pretty, smart, and more. I saw no apparent reason for her to be put down so hard. It broke my heart that she had to deal with it, and I couldn't stand by and watch, as I had experienced my share of bullying myself. I didn't want anyone else to go through what I had. I promised her that I would help her. I gathered my entire class, wrote an appreciation card, and had everybody sign it. At recess, I had gathered multiple teachers and students for a rally against the bullies. The bullying stopped for good and she met and made multiple new friends. Our kindness inspired many people in the school to stop bullying, and for the rest of the year, we tried our hardest to be a bully-free school.
