Bullying is a problem that can derail a child’s schooling, social life, and emotional well-being. A report issued by the Bureau of Justice Statistics states that bullying occurs on a daily or weekly basis in 23 percent of public schools across the United States. The issue has gained more attention in recent years because of technology and new ways to communicate and harass one other, such as the internet, cell phones, and social media. Adults may have a tendency to ignore bullying and write it off as a normal part of life that all kids go through. But bullying is a real problem with serious consequences.                                                                                                                                                         The problem is that some people get easily depressed because of bullying. Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed.                                                                                                                                                                    This problem must be solved by "all of us". We are not perfect but we all have a good heart and mind, and I want this to spread all over the world that we should be a friend to all, also a friend that will motivate and help us in our problems. Let us take care of each other, and do not neglect a person to be sad. We are all one! So stop the bullying and let us start to be a good citizen for everyone. Thank you!
