How many people are advocating putting an end to bullying?
How many times a day do you hear the word? Is it in school? On TV perhaps?
What if you see someone else being bullied right now? Do you do something to stop it? Or you just think to yourself:
“Whoa! I’d better get the hell out of here because it’s none of my business”
There’s a viral video with more than 2 million views that was posted a few days ago called THE BULLYING EXPERIMENT, by fouseyTUBE. And just…
How did that make you feel?
How did the girl in this part make you feel?
How did this guy make you feel?
What about her?
And what can you say about these people?
I know what some of you will say: “Oh, I’ve been bullied myself, so I’ve seen and suffered it. That’s why I wouldn’t like to get in the middle of it”. And that’s just one of the possible answers some of you might have. Here’s another one: “I might get hurt, and I wouldn’t like that, so I prefer not to step in and help the guy”. Or, or: “Those types of situations really scare me, so I just run away from them”.
So, if we don’t help to stop it, how will the problem of bullying be solved? I myself don’t have the answer because, I will be honest with you, I fit in one of the above quotes. But I will also confess this: this video I just saw just made me think it over and made me realize that I can be one of those who help make a change.
So Ugly Ducklings, what do you think? Feel free to comment below and tell us what you would do if this happened next to you. Have you been brave enough to face a bully?
Here’s a couple of reasons why people in the video reacted the way they did…
So, what would you do?
