Everyday racism: Your stories
Take A Stand
Firstly, there are lot of websites either government or organizational that has bunch of contents available that raise awareness against bullying, but most of them are unaware to the population out in the public, out in the society where all of our life time is situated, this kind of unawareness gives chances for bullies to increase the rate of bullying and decrease the population of the society. These situations mostly occur when we act like a bystander instead of a fighter when bulling takes place in front of us or in the society. Instead of acting like a bystander and helping the bully we can help the victim and save just one life but it means a lot because we all know that each drops of water can make huge ocean in the same way each of our never ending efforts can save lots of lives.
Secondly, most of the responsible and mature society members still are in a misconception believing that involving in the awareness against bullying they are calling themselves into troubles. They have a belief that they might be the next target but who knows the future and also how many chances are there that if we don’t stop them they won’t target us? What if we are their next target? Basically, in this situation we shouldn’t wait and worry about what is going to occur but, instead, we will need to focus on what can be done in the present that won’t harm the future of everyone and will instead make this society a better place to spend the life given by God.
Finally, just not being aware about the causes and incident of bullying is not the only cause in the consistent increasing of the rates of bullying that has claimed a lot of lives and destroyed the peace of households and societies. Many victims of this cause especially teenagers mostly deny to claim that they are bullied which gives a bully more chances to create fear on peoples’ heart. While most teenagers claim that they are not bullied in the other hand they don’t realize that depression is slowly attacking and chewing their brain bringing suicidal symptoms on them which are most often noted by the parents but they mostly have their hand tied and can do nothing. In these special time periods parents have some special roles to play on their children’s life. They should and must be their friends and use their best efforts to know and handle the situation which may reduce the chances of depression and help the teenagers know what is right for them to do in very harsh situation.
In conclusion, bullying has become like a very deadly virus which can slowly chew the mind of victim and force him to commit suicide, and the only person who plants this virus or spreads it is a bully who if not caught or reported can claims life of some innocent population of this society. The only antidote for this virus is our own mind and our efforts to take a stand against it with no fear but with bravery.
