Imagine being bullied every day, what would you do?

Imagine getting beat up every day at school for no reason, by your classmates or maybe even by an adult. You come home with bruises, cuts and dried up blood. Can you imagine that? Or if you are a girl, imagine getting teased every day, people calling you horrible names, mocking you because of your appearance or your background, maybe even calling you names such as “slut” or “whore”.  You come home all sad and hurt inside. Can you imagine that? Or can you even imagine being punched and being called names in class and even when you get home receiving threatening messages? Imagine not having any one to turn to. Would you feel hurt? Or even scared? Imagine the feeling. There are people facing this every day. Whether they are adults or not bullying causes serious distress. When someone is bullied especially if it is for a long time whether it is physical verbal or even cyber bullying it makes living everyday life miserable. Some in very bad cases may lead to them killing themselves because they cannot handle the pressure or the humiliation that they face every day. Many people have different opinions on what bullying is some say it is kicking or pushing  others say it is when you say mean things or call someone names. All of these things in my opinion are considered bullying. Today marks 3 years since the daughter of an old friend of mines committed suicide. This little girl of six years old decided to end her life before it even began. Her reason? She did not want to continue living in a world full of cruelty. It is extremely sad to see how kids now a day are horrible to one another. There are many sign to look for when someone is being bullied and there are ways to stop it by creating awareness. I am 100% against bullying, it makes me really sad knowing that people have it in them to cause such pain in others.
