Stop Everything & Watch This Anti-Bullying Video

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: Bullies Suck.

October 26, 2017

When I think back to high school, I have mostly fond memories hanging with friends, playing sports and goofing off. But then I have some darker memories from when I was bullied, and these memories are even more vivid than the good ones.

 

I remember being called a "pocket-protector NERD" by girls who were "cooler" than me. I remember being surrounded by girls in my class who were yelling horrible things in my face and kicking dirt at me while I was literally on the ground. I remember being prank called by these girls, too, and I'll never forget that.

 

I had no idea one of America's most well-known fast food chains could put together an anti-bullying campaign that would have a profound impact on me. Whether you've been bullied, have watched a bully pick on someone else or even have been the bully, you should take 3 minutes out of your day to remember why standing up for someone who often cannot stand up for themself is so important. 

 

Don't be a bully. And if you see bullying happening, don't be a spectator. Stand up and say something.
