Let’s start off with the actual definition of bullying from stopbullying.gov:
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time...
If you saw a young person being bullied what would you do? Would you step up and say something or would you ignore it?
Who will stop the bullying?
This is the question a new anti-bullying video shot in Grand Rapids asks.
The way several strangers reacted to the social experiment makes me proud to be a Grand Rapidian!
Caitlin Prater-Haacke, a high school student in Airdrie, Alberta, was bullied a few weeks ago on Facebook.
Someone posted on her page telling her to die. Pretty brutal.
But instead of responding in a negative way, Caitlin did just the opposite.
