Bullying, is a word we hear often and some of us know all to well what it means. Some of us have no idea how something so small as getting picked on can be so harmful that it drives some kids to do very violent acts. I am probably a little odd since I have been on both sides of this bullying situation. As a child in primary school I was always proud to tell everyone that my mom was Japanese, she worked so hard to become a citizen of this country and to this day is still proud of her heritage. Little did I know how much I would be picked on because I was different.
