BULLYING IS FOR LOSERS!

Hi Guys,

Wow, it’s been a fun Summer so far and I sure hope that it’s been a fun summer for you, too.  I want to tell you something that really bothers me.  I see  many of you with your cell phones and you’re having so much fun watching funny things on it, and you’re also texting back and forth to  your friends and family and that’s great.  But make sure that the things you’re texting or watching are good things and not bad or hurtful things.  Remember, words hurt.  Never let anyone make you feel bad about yourself because they are a bully!  Bullies don’t think about the fact they are hurting people.  They just think that they can hurt others and get away with it.  Well, if someone who is supposed to be your friend begins to push you around or they text mean and unkind words to you, tell your mom and dad about it first and then make up your mind that the person isn’t really your friend. Be brave and let them know you are not afraid and that you will NOT let them treat you bad or say and text ugly things to you. You were made by God and God makes good everything.  Bullying is for losers and you are not a loser.  Just remember to be kind and have  more fun this Summer, too.  Talk to you later.  JENNY
