Every October, schools and organizations across the country join for Bullying in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage communities to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.  Try making friends with someone at school that you don't know,  a smile goes a long way.  Stand up for others, be a strong voice for someone that doesn't have one. I was bullied when I was a kid, and no-one ever spoke up for me or stood up for me.  I was to shy and did whatever I could to avoid confrontation, and I know there are a lot of kids like that today.  So step up and do your part to help stop bullying!
