Saving Your Friend from Embarrassment

My friend, Allyson, was a really great friend. She never talked much. She didn’t talk because everyone was jealous that she was voted smartest in the grade. She was short and every day at recess a few people bullied her every recess. One day I saw my best friend, Allyson sitting on the side crying with people next to her making fun of her. That was the day we were assigned a poster to make an ‘anti-bullying’ poster. My poster said, “Words can hurt just as much as punches.” And there were 2 boxing gloves hanging. I gave in my project and I got an “A+”. I was really happy. Next day at recess I took my poster marched around with it getting a lot of people to hold their signs and march as well. The bullies went away from Allyson because everyone scared them. Allyson was happy; she was wiping away her tears. Allyson was never bullied again. We taught her to stand up for herself and tell an adult if it doesn’t work.

A group of girls are making fun of one girl about how she looked, even though it was just her bad hair day. I looked back and saw this happening. I told people that I want to mess up our hair and make ourselves look like a mess. We went to the group that was making fun of that girl and asked if they liked how we looked. The girl being made fun of had a big smile because we all looked crazy and the mean group doesn’t have enough insults to insult all of us and had to give up.

One day, Dona wasn’t feeling well. A bunch of girls in her class didn’t want to sit next to her because they thought she would throw up on them. Dona felt so bad she just wanted to go home. Samantha saw this and sat next to her and talked to her all day. Dona felt good and was happy that she had a new friend.

I know a girl and someone was making fun of her. She was one of my best friends. Someone was being mean to her. I went over there and said, “Why are you being mean to her. You don’t even know her. You are just going to judge her by the way she looks.” She kept teasing both of us. So the next day I went up to her and said, “Why are you mean to everyone? You don’t know them. You never saw them. Why are you mean?” the next day she came up to me and said, “I am sorry.” I said back, “Don’t apologize to me. Apologize to everyone you hurt.” She did and she became one of me best friends. We all had a good time together.

There was a quiet girl names Raquel and a spoiled popular girl who I was friends with name Rebecca. We were making a skit and Rebecca said, “I am a better singer than you, I should be lead.” Raquel started crying and I ran to her and said, “You are a great singer, you are better than me.” And she was happy again. Just because she won’t stick up for herself it doesn’t mean nobody else should.

There was a kid names Steve. His best friend was a popular kid named Michael. Once, Michael figured out Steve’s biggest secret. He still watches “Dora the explorer.” This may sound normal, but Steve is a college kid. When Michael figured this out, he spread a huge rumor. In school, all do Steve’s friends were making fun of him. Steve was crying so much. Days later a quiet boy names Jim saw Steve crying. He felt very bad. He had an idea. Jim started to make a new rumor that Steve never watched TV. A few days later Steve was so happy. He stopped being friends with Michael and was friends with Jim instead. He thought that he would rather have a shy and nice friend than a mean but popular friend.

We were playing baseball and it was a tie at the end of the game. One kid who was the best out of all of us and he was up with 2 outs. He hits a high pop the kid misses the ball and the other team won. Everybody said he was very bad and he can’t catch a ball. Then I came up and said, “It wasn’t his fault, the sun was in his eyes.” Then everyone stopped.

There were two groups of ten girls playing a game. One girl didn’t have a lot of friends. She asked to play and one of the girls from the game said, “You can’t play. You are weird. We don’t like you!” she left and cried in recess. Then all the girls from the game except one girl went to play with her and the girl that made her cry wanted to play and the girl that cried said, “You can play!”
