words can hurt

Examiner: “Many people think of bullying as getting beat up in school, but it is so much more than that. For me it was all of the verbal harassment I had to deal with. People say sticks and stones may break your bones but names can never hurt you, but that’s not true. Words can hurt. They hurt me. Things were said to me that I still haven’t forgotten.” “I was lucky, though. I had really supportive parents, other education options, and I had outlets like music and acting. I actually used all of the bullying as a motivation to succeed. I think I have actually become a stronger person because of it.” “But I know that many kids and teens do not have all of the support and outlets I have, and that’s why I want to do something about bullying. I want to make it stop. And I’ve teamed up with PACER and TeensAgainstBullying.org as their spokesperson to create a movement. A bullying prevention movement made up of kids and parents and teachers everywhere who want it to stop, too” (Shelley Dillon, Examiner, Nov 21, 2009).
