This iReport is part of an assignment:
Support your local bully, because they have it worse than their victims!
Morrow noticed that a lot of bullying often happens in the comment sections of forums and social sharing websites, which prompted her to ask the question. She's noticed that most people who comment on these sites aren't doing so to show their interest, but to show hate. Morrow particularly wanted to attend this conference because it was the first educational event of its kind. "Being part of documenting moments in history that really matter makes me feel like a historical contributor," she said.
While Ellen Page made the greatest impact at the event, she said that the real heroes were the school counselors in attendance. She also "enjoyed chelsea clinton because she has a real passion for human rights."

If you fix those that are bullied, then you haven’t fixed the problem. If you fix the bullies (which are victims of a matter), then the problem solves itself.
