Tell Us Your Kindness Story

There was this kid Nathaniel who went to my school in elementary and he was a really nice and sweet kid but he always got bullied because of his facial deformation. There was also a girl named Natasha who pretty much was friends with everyone and could force anyone into doing what she wanted because she didn't care about getting in trouble, and since she was so well-known especially for being a cool person, teachers always doubted them if a kid told them she did a bad thing. She was Nathaniel main bully, she spread rumors and lies about him that made people not like him, causing him to get bullied by pretty much the whole school. Except from this one kid Payton, Payton was also a really cool guy, he was always nice to Nathaniel and always stuck up for him, but soon enough Payton also started to get bullied, just because he chose to be friends with Nathaniel. I knew he didnt want to but he started to bully Nathaniel too, I was a quiter kid then and had only a couple friends so, i tried not to get involved as i didnt want to bully him, nor be bullied. The teachers were pretty much oblivious and so i decided to tell the principal and we started a project, Project Nathaniel it worked for some time but then we got a new principal and the project was cancelled. He sted to get bullied again and soon enough it got so bad to the point that he took his life. We had a school assembly about bulling and after that bullying was a rare sight, and teachers became more strict with talking with friends or group projects. I really wish I'd kept trying.
