We're losing too many children to bullying

You'll find some of the stories that have touched the hearts of our board of directors in the stories that appear below.

Like Tempest, 11-year-old Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover ended his own life as a result of bullying. It's important all of us stand up against bullying wherever we encounter it.

Like Tempest, 15-year-old Phoebe Prince ended her life as a result of bullying. Bullying doesn't stop once a child leaves school.

Like Tempest, 13-year-old Jared High ended his life as a result of bullying. On his parent's website, someone wrote, "The only differences between a terrorist and a bully is in the organized planning or cause of the activity, and the scale of terror. A bullied child will believe that there is no difference between a terrorist and a bully given the above definitions."
