Bullying should not be supported and should be stopped.

Dear future president,

          In today's society bullying is a big problem we have in schools, outside of schools, homes, and etc. There are also many different ways to bully a person. There's cyberbullying, verbal bullying, social bullying, and physical bullying. Being an bystander is also a form of bullying because if you're just standing there letting it happen without helping, your allowing that person to continue to get bullied which makes you a bully. 

         On it states " Bullying can lead to many different effects. One serious effect that it causes is suicide. Bully-related suicide can be connected to any type of bullying, including physical bullying, emotional bullying, cyberbullying, and sexting, or circulating suggestive or nude photos or messages about a person." Bullying is a serious problem. It makes children afraid to leave the house and go to school most times at that. " According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying." Another fact about the risks pf bullying is that girls between 10 and 14 is more likely to be bullied to the point where suicide is a current thought. Most bully-related suicides happen in high school. "Over 14 percent of high school students have considered suicide, and almost 7 percent have attempted it." That's about half the students who have been bullied.

         Most bullies bully people because they used to be bullied. Others do it because they want to take the attention off of them or because they want people to feel the way they have felt. Overall, it is a major problem in America.
