Over the past few years, the issue of bullying has received increased attention, especially in schools. Statistics show that about 30% of people have experienced bullying during their k-12 school years, and according to Do Something, over three million students are the targets of bullies in the United States. Unfortunately, the results of being bullied can have short-term and long-term effects on victims. In some of the worst cases, victims have even taken their own lives.
