This article is one in a series created by students in Mr. Alex Escamilla's journalism class at Southwest Community Campus. Students were asked to complete artwork and write an article regarding bullying issues in Grand Rapids, and America as a whole. Students worked with artist Reyna Garcia and Grandville Avenue Arts and Humanities to complete artwork to express their thoughts about bullying.

It was a terrible day for a young SWCC [Southwest Community Campus] student. When two of his friends came and told that student something that person will never forget for his whole life. I will tell you how terrible it was for that student.

It was in the cafeteria when the student was getting bullied. The student was going to line up and he started to talk to someone about his weekend. When the student was done talking to his friends, the two girls came and whisper to him “that he should die.” The student was bewildered that the girls would say that. The whole day the girls messed with the student. The student told the teacher what the girls said to the student.

In conclusion, that student had the courage to tell the teacher what happened to him. Don’t be a bully it’s a terrible thing to do.
