    Many people have been apart of bullying. Whether it be the actual bully, the person being bullied, or a witness. There are different types of bullying, each being a terrible thing. There is cyber bullying which is bullying done through a device and there is face-to-face bullying which is bullying done in person.

    “ I think it’s wrong. How can you just tell someone they don’t fit in by what they have. I feel like there should be a law against bullying,” stated Monique Snead.

    Some may feel that they are not apart of bullying when they witness it. However, if someone is to witness another being bullied they too are in the wrong. If you see someone being bullied you could be the one to put a stop to it.

    “ I would try to stand up to the person, I probably would have to think of something to say though. I also would notify an adult,” said Samantha Dingus.

    Bullying can happen anytime at any place. Many say someone who bullies another does so because of circumstances at home. Others say they may bully for attention. Whether it’s through a screen or face-to-face, bullying is something that no one should ever have to experience.

    “ If you ask me, which type of bullying is worse, I think they’re the same because you can carry onsite bullying to face-to-face and make it worse,” stated Piajah Johnson

    If someone was to witness another person being bullied and did not take action, the bully would feel it was okay. Not stopping someone who is bullying another individual could result in the bullying harming that individual. A witness could be the one to stop the bullying and maybe even save a life. If the bully does not have consequences he/she will feel that they can continue with that type of behavior.

    “ I think that a bully should have a serious punishment. Bullying someone is like murder, it could really kill a person whether they kill them or the person commits suicide,” stated Snead.
