I would like to state an issue that affects me and a lot more people from many ages. This issue has to
do with “bullying”. Bullying shouldn’t be something we all see everyday and pass it by something we see
everyday and in my opinion ALL types of bullying should be illegal.
Some of the reasons that I want bullying to change are because the only people who “like” bullying
are the same bullies. An article by LA Times states that “The victims of bullying are 2 times more likely
to contemplate suicide and 2.5 times more likely to try and kill themselves than other kids who are not
victims of bullying”. Also another article by LA Times states that “Victims of bullying suffer the
psychological consequences all the way until middle age, with higher depression,anxiety, and thoughts of
suicide”. In other words kids that were bullied as little kids will continue to suffer as adults because of
other kids wanting to have fun. I can say that being bullied is not much fun and i’ve had experienced it
but not as much as other people that have way worse situation than I do.
This is what I want to do I just want you to make Bullying illegal. Make more anti-bullying
commercials, mostly anything to get the word out of no more bullying. You could also do some more
“reunions” for anti-bullying in at least most schools in the US. I hope you have a good 4 years running or
even maybe 8 years, good luck president.
