This is an awesome video with a great message. Basically, the short video describes how kids can feel bullied and left out in school. Here are a few of the lyrics (words) from the song:
You don’t know what it’s like to be hurt, to feel lost, to be left out in the dark. To be on the edge of breaking down and no one’s there to save you. No you don’t know what it’s like… welcome to my life.
I think that the writers of the song (Simple Plan) hit home on the fact that there are a lot of kids and adults in this world who don’t feel included, feel bullied, and have no one to talk to about their problems. The video mentions that 100,000 (that’s right, I said 100,000!!!) kids drop out of school every year because they DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE IN SCHOOL!
My question to you (and if you’re in my class, you know that I always have a question) is what do you do to make people in your school feel included? What about on the athletic field? Do you work as a team? Is there someone that you think might not feel included while at school? What are YOU going to do about this?
