Dear Future President,
Please focus on the teenagers in this generation. Teenagers are being bullied so much to the point that they consider suicide. Suicide a very big problem. Families hearts get broken, and friends feel like they could’ve stop their friend from doing it. I can’t say that I know how it feels to have a friend or family die because of this issue. All that I can say is that i was a victim of being bullied. And one thing for sure is that it’s very hard to get back up and feel proud of yourself.
In elementary school I was left out a lot. I would be bullied by the girls who I thought were my friends. I had no help, my parents didn’t understand what I was going through. My brother was entering middle school, and my parents wanted him to go to a certain school. We moved which meant I didn’t confront the girls who bullied me. My new what so much better, and I was free from the pain I lived everyday. Then I entered middle school, and the same girls who bullied me were there. They had asked me to forgive them, and I did. I learned how to forgive and i forgave them. It was hard for me to just act as if everything was alright, but we’re human, we make mistakes.
Future President, I have realized how bullying can affect a person for years. I know i’m not the only one, but I ask if you can do anything in your power to stop bullying and suicide. I ask if you can help that boy or girl who goes home crying after school because of what a terrible day it has been for them. Let there be a community program or allowing schools to have programs about bullying. A place where victims of bullying can express themselves, and where everyone can get along as a community instead of growing apart from each other.
Please give victims of bullying a reason why to wake up every morning.
Sincerely, Keren Martinez
