I’m Nora Nissenbaum and together with my friends we're taking a stand against bullying of all kinds for all kids.
I know first-hand how incredibly painful it can be. So often, kids are told to just avoid and ignore bullies and “be tough.” As kids, this can be a lot harder to do than grownups realize. I know I tried for a long time to be tough but began to have problems with anxiety and depression. Kids have a lot of stress on them already with school, sports, friends, etc. – add a bully to the mix and it can spell disaster!
Bullying is such a huge problem that clearly adults can’t fix alone. Kids need to DO something – WE need to have a loud voice to address this issue and we need to be heard! Kids and grownups have the power to stop the bullying trend by making an active commitment to kindness!
