I have a dream.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

I have a dream I have a dream that one day we shall all live in a world without bullies. No one to intimidate us, no one to tell us what to do and how to do it, but to lead our own lives in confidence, and being able to walk strong-mindedly through streets at night without feeling scared or threatened by others. Every day, children are too frightened to go to school as they are being bullied. There are children coming home in tears as they are having such a bad time at school.

Whether it's physical or mental bullying, they all affect the victim. Bullies don't realise just how much they can effect someone's life.

Conclusion

Or a mobile phone? Too many incidents like these are occurring more frequently over the years and it looks like things are going to carry on like this if people don't look out for others and try to help those who are being bullied.

No one to intimidate us, no one to tell us what to do and how to do it, but to lead our own lives in confidence, and being able to walk strong-mindedly through streets at night without feeling scared or threatened by others, will continue to be a dream. ...read more.
