Teen's Dream

My dream is to end Cyberbullying because it is starting to get out of hand.  Approximately 20% of kids cyberbullies and think about suicidal attempts. About 1 in 10 actually attempt to take their own lives.  This percent may seem very little but actually, it is getting larger as no one does anything about it. If everyone just watches who’s gonna be the one to stand against the abuse and show how much damage this does to an individual. I want to lower this percent and make my community less affected by this issue by spreading awareness.  This Dream can be slowly but surely accomplished by following some simple solution ideas; telling adults, blocking the bully and not interacting, and more are great ways to deal with cyberbullying. By starting little with just a community the idea of a safer internet can grow larger. When posting something someone should not have to be scared of how others will think of them or be scared they will get judged and harassed. They should have the comfort of being able to be themselves without having to deal with the harsh pain of people’s words.
