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.

All around the world people are bullied. It doesn’t matter if it’s at school, in public or at one of their houses. Bullies do many harmful things. They hurt people’s feelings, kill them or bully them so bad that it leads to suicide.

People often get bullied because of the way they dress, talk, look, who they hang out with, what they like and many other reasons. Bullies usually have problems at home or in their life and they take their frustrations out on innocent people.

Bullying has a huge impact on teens and children. Some victims of bullying say good-bye to family members and friends because of the fact that they’re bullied so bad and they can’t take it anymore. Bullying is all over the world and it can lead to death or hurting themselves.

In conclusion, bullies are often admonished and warned but don’t seem to listen. There are many deaths because of bullying. Also, a lot of people miss out on the delight and pleasure of living because they are bullied.
