DALLAS – Being bullied can break a kid's confidence and can even be deadly. That's why Billy Earl Dade Middle School is doing everything they can to help put an end to it, since it's National Bullying Prevention month.
Friday morning, the school teamed up with "100 Men in Black" to come together, dance, march and talk about how being kind beats bullying. They also shared their own testimonies about bullies.
"My son had been being bullied by some guys,” Dr. Michael Bowie Jr. said. Bowie Jr. is the pastor at St. Luke Community United Methodist Church. “I just found out this a few months ago, and my son had to fight. And some of you all today, you've been bullied and you hadn't told anybody. And I want you to know today you're not a wimp for snitching on bullies. Amen?”
"I think that it's good that we're marching against bullying, even against anti-bullying, cyber bullying, that we're just marching up against it," student Julian Guevara said.
Here's hoping these steps are stepping stones towards a bully-free environment.
