I do not believe as adults, we should experience
bullying because we are different from our peers. I believe no matter what my race, sex, philosophy, and gender is, I should be treated with the same respect as everyone else.
I am anti-bullying and I believe that bullying can end. Below are some factors to think about:
Teach empathy. Adults who understand others’ emotions are better able to comfort their peers or avoid hurting others in the first place.
Encourage positive attitudes. By modeling and encouraging positivity, you can create a positive culture.
Create an inclusive community. Challenge your community to work together as a team rather than compete to be the best.
Develop leaders. Adults who strive to create a well rounded community and offer resources for a peaceful environment.
Therefore, the way that I express my culture and heritage is through various forms of the arts and teaching others about the importance of acceptance, empathy, compassion and love.
