In recent years, bullying has been on the rise. With the growing popularity of social media, people simply have one more outlet to use to make fun of, harass and belittle innocent victims. In schools especially, it seems that bullying is becoming more and more prevalent — and sadly, instead of helping, many simply turn a blind eye to it.
In this commanding video, we follow the story of two girls who are bullied relentlessly. In one scene, a bully takes a picture of a girl in his class and then posts it all over the halls, along with a mean caption. The girl finds the poster and breaks down in tears. In another scene, we see a girl shying away from her friends and family because she has been horribly bullied via text message.
This powerful video is a much-needed reminder of the bullying that happens around us every single day. It must be stopped. Is this what God would want? There is no need to bring someone else down to try to make yourself feel better. And if you see bullying happening around you, remind yourself that we are all children of God and no one deserves this treatment.
As the Dalai Lama once said, “Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”
