The Time I Bullied Someone by Ra’Shavdrick Kelly
The first time I bullied someone was when I was in the sixth grade. He was a new student to the school and everyone started to bully him. So, I started to bully him. He was getting bullied for a month straight. One day he got beat up for trying to take up for himself. Then one day he came to school with all of his supplies in a Wal-Mart bag. He started getting bullied more. So, one day I saved up my money and went and bought him a backpack. I started to hang out with him and people started to ask, “Why are you with him buying him things?”
“Because it’s the right thing to do,” I said. So, people started to help him and got the things he needed and wanted. He became everyone’s friend. He never got bullied another day of his middle school years.

About The Bully Diaries:
Chances are that you experienced bullying in your life. Whether your experience was as a victim, a bystander or the bully, if you search your memories, you will probably find instances when bullying was a part of your life. For many of us, these experiences have defined us and shaped us. Our experiences made us stronger, and helped us become who we are today.
When you are being bullied, it is hard to think about much more than getting through today. For others, there is no today. Their experience being bullied was too overwhelming, and drove them to a devastating and permanent solution to the temporary pain.
Through a community partnership with Stand for the Silent, Writing for the Soul Workshop collected stories, letters and poems from youth, teens and adults from around the world. These stories are pieces of lives impacted by bullying; written to show everyone affected by bullying that you are not alone, that you can survive the experience, that you are somebody.
A portion of the proceeds from book sales goes to support Stand for the Silent.

Note from the Publisher:
Stand For The Silent exists as a platform that has allowed its Founders’ Kirk and his wife Laura to travel and speak to over a 1,000,000 kids in over 1,200 schools. In the photo, Kirk is pictured here speaking with former First Lady Michelle Obama.
The first time I met Kirk, I knew that I’d met one of the most genuine men I’d ever met in my life. He truly wants to make sure that individuals like Christina can live in a world where bullying does not exist. When Kirk shared with me how he lost his son, Ty …it changed me. -Eric L. Jones, Sr., Publisher
“Ty had a big heart and always had a big smile for everyone. He loved to hunt and help others. Ty was small for his age. Two years of being bullied was just too much for him. He retaliated against the bully and was suspended. We lost Ty on May 13th, 2010.” -Kirk, Stand For The Silent
