I think it is important to think before you speak for many reasons. First of all I think that if you don't think before you speak you might hurt someone. Sometimes if you keep saying stuff without thinking you might get in a lot of trouble. That is why you should always think before speaking.
true fact nice point
Well, you should always think before you speak. Like, if you were really mad about some one, you can say harsh words to them. That could stay in their life forever, how harmful you can hurt people with you words. Basically, I am trying to say to try to stop bullying. If you see some one getting bullied, you should always stand up for them or tell an adult. If you were about to yell at a person, think before you speak, don't say any bad words that could really affect the person you are speaking to.
-Seanster the Monster
i like the stand up part
I agree with you, I think that if you say something mean to someone that could stick with them for the rest of their life and really make them feel bad anout themselves.
I agree with Sean.Most people should think what they say before the text or yell.I also agree with Sean about his bullying description because many people cant get help when someone is pushing them around or if they are getting beaten and cries it really does not matter bullying is bullying i (just like Sean) think it should be stopped as fast as we can because like the girl in the video might commit suicide or even kill some one else or hurt them, if they can not get any help.I agree with Sean that we should think before we speak and before we text, message or tell,i also wanted to say that i agree that bullying should be stopped and soon.
We should always think before we speak because words can hurt people. Rumors et started and people have permanent damage done to their lives. People commit suicide, some cut themselves, other are mentally damaged for the rest of their lives. it upsetting and you would never want to do that to someone or be left with the guilt and have to live with it.
i like the guilt good job
WOW! um...alittle doom and gloom for me but totally true. Words definetly can do permanent damage but they can also stick in people's minds like a good reminder.( i will hear this in my nightmares tonight, THANKS ALOT JORDAN! frownie face)
It is imperative to think before you speak because soemthing might come out of your mouth that you don't mean but your mad or want to get revenge for something they did. Also it is imperative that you think before you speak because the things you say might just kill someone because they took it to far the wrong way.
i do not thing you got the whole picture u know what i mean
I think that is important to thinkk before we speak because you could say something mean and not even reilaze it so think before you speak.
wayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayaayayaayayay to short my fellow.
I think we should think before we speak because words can kill.I think we should think before we say because some people might take somethings way to serious and would kill themselves just from it.Like on the video we say on the bullying.It also means that some people might take that very offensive or even take there life for it.This is how words do matter.
I agree words can easily kill someone easily. Just like in the video
good ref to the vid
I think that if physical abuse is like a knife, words can be a nuclear bomb. They can hurt you from the inside, nothing like that with physical abuse could do that, so it is important to think and say, so we don't hurt people, even if by accident.
I like your simile, it is very true.
NICE SIMILIES G8 JOB
i agree with you alex and i like your simile. i'm with you 100% on this.
It is imperative that we think before we talk because we could hurt the other person. I could be a joke to you but it could really hurt someone else. You never know how the other person is going to take it.
i like the part about the joke
It is very imperative to think about what we say before we say it for many reasons. One reason is that you do not want that person to end up committing suicide. Also you do not want that being you. That would happen if you were bullying someone the may "return the favour" and bully you back. Also you would not want to live with yourself knowing that your word choice hurt someone that bad.
i like the parentasses
I think it is important to think before you speak becuse like in the video, maybe the bullies didn`t think through thier plans before they wen`t along with it. I think that they probably woud`nt have done it if they knew it would kill a student and land them a spot in jail... I have heard many stories about Kids who have been bullied and then sadly killed them self. This might have not happened if they thought about what they were doing. In fact, PEOPLE magzine dedicated four pages of the magzine to share stories of this same inccedent happening in other placces. It is not only girls who form "clicks" and target other students. Many boys do this to, but in more physical ways. Also, don`t think that once you are an adult, bulling goes away, because it dosent. Many adult women form "clicks" too. I feel it is a sad thing that should be more recognised by the u.s government. I think it would be nice if peeople faught back (trust me, it`s not only helpful, but moderetly entertaining.) at bullies and actually went through with plans to gt rid of them.
P.s sorry this is a little long. I have a TON to say on this topic...... :)
i agree that bullying should be stoped and taken more seriously. I also agree that they should actully go through with stopping them. They never really do this, at least that I have heard of.
i like the mag ref
yes you did wright a lot! I do agree with you though because I do think that bullies may have not thought about what they said befor they said it. I also agree with the fact that bullieing dose not go away nomatter what age you are. There are more things that I could have told you. If I did do it would be longer than yours noelle!
I liked how you said that even adults can get bullied, and that you referred to the article in PEOPLE magazine.I agree that it should be more recognised by the U.S. government.
Your blog was extremelly snazzalicious! One of my favorite thinks you mentioned in here was when you said that Bullying doesnt go away because your right...It scars you for the rest of your life. BULLYING STINKS AND WE SHOULD STOP IT :D
~MRS.INDEPSNAZZPOO CHILD :D
Noelle I think that you are correct, I have one question, is a click a gang of people who target another student or what? If this topic was looked into even more by the government than setting down a NO BULLYING law this wouldn't be a problem. If you bully someone like the girl in the video it's like murder. I think it's disgusting what happened to that girl and you are totally right about bullying and I feel you.
Well, I think that it is always important for us to think before we speak because words are sharp. Words are peircing, not like a knife because that can be fixed. Once you hear something it leaves a lasting impression. We must choose whether that impression is good or not and we only get the right choice if we think about it first.
I agreee. words are just like a knife. But a knife wound is easier to heel. Words last forever. Wounds last a couple of mounths. (depending...)
nice vocab jennywenny
I liked how you said that words are sharp and peircing. I think that is a really good way to describe mean words.
I think that it is important to think before you speak because what you say could hurt someone's feelings. You might not realize this until you think about it, though. If you know it could hurt someone you can stop yourself from
this is not my blog but ally just so you know you forgot a few words!! ;o
Sometimes if we don't think before we speak, we might not realize that what we say will really hurt someone.
shortest blog i have ever seen you need to right at least two lines
I think that words can hurt people much more than anything else. We should really think before we speak because if we dont, we could hurt people in un-imaginable ways. Think that just one text and a few words can make a person take their life. I read a book on a girl who did this same thing, and it was very inspiring and tought me to think before i speak and to be careful what I text and email.
nice 2012 spin on it
I think itis imperative that we always think before we speak for many reasons. Think about what it must be like to be a brother/sister or parent of someone who kills themselves. What if this happened because of words? For this family it did I but these kids just thtought that she ws fun to pick on and didnt event think about what they wanted to say what so ever. Rhey made a regular 13 year old girl kill herself now how do you think the bullis feel now they will have that grief that they made someone kills themselves hanging over there shoulder their whole life. So the bullies irresponsible behavior came back to haunt them.
idk wat sum of the wrds were
well...that video was heart breaking that what seemed like their only choice was sucicide. I know i would never want to be the cause of anyones death especially from what i said. I also feel awful for her parents and the pain they are going through right now because i know how it feels to loose someone close to you due to sucicide. my 2nd cousin comitted sucicide. well i guess what im trying to say is bullying hurts
i am srry for your loss
RIP hollys 2nd cous
"i think it'a important because people might take it the wrong way while of course it was a joke. Another thing about this is people all around us get bullied due to people sorrow comments and, if we dont say anything mean but something nice to somebody they can go home with a smile other then going home with a rope and hanging them selfs from the ceiling and there mom and dad crying in each other arms because of a sorry problem that nobody wanted to help them with. a compliment can really make somebody's day but a sorry comment can ruin there life."
I think that you make a very great point there kobe. Every body should say at least one nice thing to somebody everyday. And about that blog entry kobe, it was very inspirational.
I totally agree with Kobe's blog. Although I wouldn't have been as specific and used as much detail, his was very true. People should rather say a compliment than something rude about someone or even worse to their face. I know I would. Kobe not only said what he wrote but he means it. he does it everyday. He puts smiles on peoples faces and doesn't say anything mean. he's a true friend to everyone! I would know this because he's not only a friend of mine but he's my BEST FRIEND! He knows it he's just to awesome to admit it!
Kobe, you are absolutley right. People's lives can be taken everyday due to the smallest comments that werent even ment to be taken offensivley. The poor girl's parents were probably suffering so much because of their daughters death. People need to know when enough is enough. Its causing so many deaths around the world and it needs to be put to an end.
I think it is very important that we think before we speak because if we don't we might end up hurting someone when we didn't mean to because they took a different way from how we intended it to be which ended up hurting them. That is why I think it is important that we think before we speak.
I sometimes don't think before i speak, and It backfires back at me.
a little plain but good job
I think that we should think before we speak because if we say something that could be percived as offenceive to somebody and that is cosidered bulling and bulling is BAD and not good and can put people into depresion. Depression is horrible because it kills their selfesteem and sometimes their will to stay alive and they can kill themselves which is sad.
nic use of caps lock
I agree with your post. Even though it might be sad I dont think other people care that they MADE that person kill themselves due to the bullying around them.
I think it is important because that woman was around our age and that said it is possible for one of my collegues. It is sad to think about that. Sad. I also saw a movie where this lady tried to kill her self because she was a janitor.
BEST ONE EVER 10/10 5STARS WOW!!!!!!!
This is important because the girl died. Which goes to show that you might be joking but they might think you are serious or trying to be mean. One time there was a girl making fun of another making fun of another girl because she was skinny,so I stepped in and said "your the opposite you are fat", and that night I felt so bad about myself and I wished I'd said something like " Back off of her" you know insted of calling names myself. My dad said "your a leader Reilly so even though your 9 years old and she's 13 you cant call names or else people will beleive you. Remember when I was way over weight, this is like you calling me fat. You know what i'm sure some other guys that were stupid called her fat, but she was even more hurt because it came from you. Tommorrw I want you to apoligize to her and say how sorry you are." So the next day I said " I am so sorry for what i said. I didn't mean it really" and you know what she said? She said "Whatever" and walked away like she didn't here a word I said, but I guess this is what I get for calling her fat.
okay good ref
