4 Bullying Videos That Will Bring You To Tears

4 Bullying Videos That Will Bring You To Tears

It seems like a news cycle doesn’t go by without the mention of bullying Ė a new study, another suicide victim, another video confession of a child or teenager sharing how their life was touched by bullying.

It’s the videos that I find the most moving and telling of the harmful effects of bullying. It is in these videos that I too often find inspiration. How brave to share what you are going through, no matter how painful, to raise awareness and give hope to those in similar circumstances.

I don’t think I would have been brave enough to do so when I was in school. I’m not sure I am brave enough to do it now.

Take a look at the four amazing videos below and take a moment to share this article with a young person in your life.

To This Day Project

“And if you canít see anything beautiful about yourself get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer because there is something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.”

Caine Stands Up

“I feel like me speaking out might encourage others kids to do the same and speak out and rise up and help each other out to get rid of bullying.”

Jonah Mowry: “Whats going onÖ”

After admitting to being a cutter since the second grade and attempting suicide to ease the pain of bullying Jonah says, “But I’m not going anywhere because Iím STRONGER than that and I have a million reasons to be here.”

Ellouise’s Story

“No-one deserves to be bullied. If you are being bullied seek help or talk to someone who cares because believe it or not you are loved by many people. Keep your head up.”

Hard to watch. Harder still to know it is all true.

Back in my day you actually had to GO to school to get bullied. Now you can get picked on in the privacy of your own home through the web. I am not sure that is progress.
