Web Wednesday | The Bullying Experiment

Hello lovely people! This Web Wednesday we're here to present an extremely compelling look at the root of bullying in America. This experiment was conducted by Yousef Erakat of FouseyTUBE. check out his channel when you have a minute!

Bullying is an extremely prevalent issue in today's society, and is something that happens all over the world every single day. It is an issue that is very important to me, and I'm so happy Yousef decided to document what happens when people choose to be bystanders.

If you witness any type of bullying incident occurring, whether it be physical, verbal, or cyber, please make sure to intervene if possible. If the incident poses a threat to your own safety, please be sure to report it to an adult (if you're in school) or other figures of authority. Bullying is something that should not be ignored. As quoted in the video, and by my father on many occasions:

"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor" 
- Desmond Tutu

So please remember to be kind, help everyone you can, and love always. 

Have a great Wednesday!
