What is a Bully?

By Annie Smith

When I was a kid my best friend told everyone in my grade not to talk to me. To this day, I have no idea why, but I do know that it hurt my feelings and I will never forget it. If someone were to ask me back then if I had ever been bullied I would have said “no.” No one has ever beaten me up or taken my lunch money. But then, I saw the Blue Apple Players Perform their new musical, BULLIES. I learned from the show that Bullying is more than just someone beating up on someone else.

Bullying can be calling someone names or even spreading rumors behind someone’s back by talking or by writing things about someone on the internet. I learned from the Blue Apple show that I bullied when I was kid and I wish I had known back then that I could’ve done something about it. If you want to see what being a Bully really is, and learn some ways to handle bullying and possibly stop it at your school, you should go see BULLIES.
