People will forget what you said.
People will forget what you did.
People will NEVER forget how you made them feel.
I love the above quote so much that is posted on my wall at work and on the refrigerator at home. I grew up being bullied and I am sure a large percentage of adults my age can say the same. The difference is, when we went home the bullying for the most part stopped. With today's kids the bullying continues for social apps, texting, etc. Educating parents and teachers on recognizing the affects of bullying is of the utmost importance.
Tanda Zap is showing their support by launching the Zap Bullying Campaign on Facebook to help raise awareness to bullying. "Bullying is an issue that knows no boundaries in terms of race and class. 1 in every 4 teens in the U.S. is bullied. Every 7 minutes a child is bullied on the playground."
"We envision a world in which young people feel safe from bullying."
