Recently, the topic of bullying has come to my attention due to a story I read about a teen whose committed sucide because she was bullied. Her name was Amanda Todd. She was bullied online, by a predator posting pictures of her topless online, and being made fun of and even now after death people still mock her. I think that this is terrible.
Raise your hand if you've ever been bullied by someone in your life, whether it may be in elementary, middle or high school, college, or even later in life by a boss or other figure. Chances all of your hands would be raised. Bullying is something that should be ended.
What defines bullying? According to, the definition of a bully is an intimidating action done to intimidate others, preferably weaker beings. The causes of bullying can range from someone having troubles from an different layer of their life, where they would want to apply the power to a different circle of their life, to them just being an asshole. 
Nonetheless, bullying is WRONG. You hear that, WRONG. You shouldn't treat others in a way that you yourself shouldn't want to be treated. You shouldn't put your hands on someone else, unless they want a hug or a handshake or something like that. Bullying is something that should be stopped. Like now.  
And to those who have been bullied, or are being bullied right now, know I feel you. You are not alone. There are a lot of people out there who at some point who have been bullied by someone. Remember this too will pass. Remember that you are awesome, and you will one day rule the world. Stop bullying. Together, we as a internet community can do just that, if each and every person reading this vows to follow that Golden Rule. Maybe then, we can live in a more peaceful world, where at long last, we can have peace on Earth. 
Together, we can make the difference.
