Go back to your good ol’ (or current) days of school, and imagine yourself in the playground during recess. There’s a group of kids surrounding two students, and one of them is being bullied. You’re the bystander. Would you help or would you watch? Now, be honest when you answer this question. You might easily think, “Yes, I will do more than watch,” but would you really?
It seems as though the social norm is to do nothing, as everyone is merely watching and condoning to the bully’s behavior. I see this in high school where two kids get into a fight and everyone just crowds around, taking videos of it, laughing. No one runs to an adult to break up the fight. Would you have the courage to stand up to this immoral act?
