Pick any day this month or every day this month and Be a Good Bystander. Speak up for someone being bullied. Take special care with anyone who has been bullied. Do something positive for them to let them know that the bully’s words do not speak for everyone. Be mindful of your actions and words towards others – are you the bully? You may not mean harm but if the person is not laughing with you, apologize and promise not to do it again. Wear a blue shirt on Monday, Oct. 5, and encourage others to do the same.
