Shake it off, stomp it down.

Hey guys!
So the other day this youth motivational speaker, Brooks Gibbs, came to my school and talked about bullying. In the past few weeks there have been 5 suicides, because of bullying. People around North America have been fighting and spreading the word about bullying and standing together to help prevent this. 
Brook Gibbs, mainly talked about Love being Greater than Hate which is based off his book Love>Hate, and "The Golden Rule." Which is simply; Treat others how you wish to be treated. If we all lived by this we wouldn't have war, we wouldn't have bullying, we wouldn't even need a government, because everyone would just be nice people and respect everyone. 
Being bullied, is feeling that you have no purpose, and feeling left out and that no one cares. But, this is exactly how the person being bullied feels. So you have to stay calm and kind. 
This is the things he spoke about. If you want to know more or if your school may be having a bullying problem you can go to his website and you can also book him to speak at your school. 
He really was amazing, most bullying assemblies are super boring but he was funny and really engaged with all of us.
As always, thanks for visiting my blog, and don't forget to stand (up) together!
