One day a student stands up to eat lunch in the cafeteria. While everyone else is sitting down to devour their pizza or fried cheese stick thing, this girl stands. Someone at her table says, “Why are you standing?” She answers, “I’m standing up to bullying. I’m sick of it, so I’m going to stand up until it stops.” She gets laughed at and everyone else goes about the business of devouring their food so they can properly socialize.
The next day, she’s standing again. And the next day. On the third day, another student comes over to stand next to her. A couple more at her table follow suit. After a week, there are a hundred students standing to eat their lunch. The message cannot be ignored. Bullying needs to stop.
It just takes one.
How could you make this happen without being obvious? Remember the 2% from this post?
