Bullying has always been a problem with kids in school. Now, it’s even bigger with social media and the Internet.
Today was Unity Day in Queen Anne’s County – a day to make kids aware of the problems of bullying. The county wants to let kids know that they are not alone and that together, they can stand up and stop bullying.
As a part of the initiative, schools are getting help from familiar faces – cartoon characters, super heroes and even Ravens cheerleaders.
At Matapeake Middle and Elementary, orange was worn to signify a united front against bullying. Student Erin Condon, a victim of bullying in the past, designed a logo for the campaign.
“There’s one piece of the heat pushed aside, even though it’s connected. Because, bullying is pushing a piece out, even though it fits.”
At Kent Island High School almost the entire student population wore orange antibullying t-shirts.
The message was clear – “No bullying.”
“The last thing we want is for a child to not feel loved or safe when they come to school.”
