Can you imagine a world without discrimination, racism or bullying? That would be a perfect world, wouldn’t it? Instead we have people judging others for whom they want to be and what skin color they are.
I have experienced bullying, racism and discrimination for what religion I am and who I am. When I attended a valley high school, I had at least two girls constantly threatening me, spreading rumors about me, and always trying to turn my friends against me. I wanted to skip school all the time, just so I wouldn’t have to deal with it.
If you ever feel as if you’re being bullied just for being who you are, take a stand. We can change the world. Just a simple good deed or even introducing yourself to someone can can make a difference.
