The Right Thing To Do
One day I was at school. I was playing with my friend. There was a girl who bullied me. She pushed me. My friend had my back. She helped me. The next day, we was outside playing. The girl who bullied me pushed my friend. I helped my friend up, and we went to tell the teacher. Our bully got in trouble, but kept bullying us until the end of the day.
I did the right thing by telling. I thought she would bully us the next day, but she didn’t. Now I know that telling on a bully is the right thing to do. -D’Vyne Allen, Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Kidz Zone

The Bully Diaries
Chances are that you experienced bullying in your life. Whether your experience was as a victim, a bystander, or the bully, if you search your memories, you will probably find instances when bullying was a part of your life. For many of us, these experiences have defined us and shaped us. Our experiences made us stronger, and helped us become who we are today.
When you are being bullied, it is hard to think about much more than getting through today. For others, there is no today. Their experience being bullied was too overwhelming, and drove them to a devastating and permanent solution to the temporary pain.
Through a community partnership with Stand for the Silent, Writing for the Soul Workshop™ has collected stories, letters and poems from youth, teens and adults. The result of this partnership was a platform to give a voice to over 1 million children and adults standing against bullying through our #writeforthesilent Project. These stories are pieces of lives impacted by bullying; written to show everyone affected by bullying that you are not alone, that you can survive the experience, that you are somebody. A portion of the proceeds from book sales goes to support Stand for the Silent.
Note from the Publisher:
Stand For The Silent exists as a platform that has allowed Kirk and his wife Laura to travel and speak to over a 1,000,000 kids. In the photo, Kirk is pictured here speaking with First Lady Michelle Obama. The first time I met Kirk, I knew that I’d met one of the most genuine men I’d ever met in my life. He truly wants to make sure that children like D’Vyne can live in a world where bullying does not exist. When Kirk shared with me how he lost his son, Ty …it changed me.
“Ty had a big heart and always had a big smile for everyone. He loved to hunt and help others. Ty was small for his age. Two years of being bullied was just too much for him. He retaliated against the bully and was suspended. We lost Ty on May 13th, 2010.” -Kirk, Stand For The Silent
