The series and the assignment

This article is one in a series created by students in Mr. Alex Escamilla's journalism class at Southwest Community Campus. Students were asked to complete artwork and write an article regarding bullying issues in Grand Rapids, and America as a whole. Students worked with artist Reyna Garcia and Grandville Avenue Arts and Humanities to complete artwork to express their thoughts about bullying.

People get bullied all around the world. For example, young kids, teenagers and also adults get bullied. Bullying means to insult or mock someone for the way they look, act, talk, dress, their religion or where they’re from. This situation is causing many bad tragedies.

People who get bullied actually may cut or burn themselves. Another thing is that bullying is causing people to commit suicide. Time after time, people get bullied and they do these types of things because they can’t take the pain anymore. Many people go through a lot of things. They suffer and they feel like everybody is against them.

In conclusion, millions of people get bullied. This results in people killing and hurting themselves. Bullying is one of the major problems all around the world.
