A snitch is a bad person looking to gain a favor by telling on another bad person so they can use the favor to get them out of trouble later. You’re NOT a snitch if you’re reporting and standing up against bullying—that makes you a good person who cares about saving a life, saving a friend, and saving a dream. ~ Ty Howard
Today, look at the person who is sitting in front, behind, to the left and to the right of you in each of your scheduled school classes. Then think for a moment… How would you like to remember each one of them right before you go to be this evening: “One of them crying and choosing to hurt themselves because they were bullied today?” or “All of them smiling and celebrating with you after you all have walked across the stage and received your diploma on graduation day?” Choose, take a firm and bold stance for the latter—and you’ll wake up the next morning smiling and eager to go to school that day.
