Cassidy Warner is 10 years old, and like numerous children, know-hows bullying at her school.
She shared her narrative — all too relatable to anyone who’s been made to feel unwelcome for who they are — in a strong video on Facebook. In it, she deems up a series of newspapers with handwritten words for the world.
As solicited, everyone was willing to repost … This is a video my daughter Cassidy affixed orginally from her own Facebook page, her caption announced ” please everyone help share my narrative about being bullied is not simply for me but for everyone” Her narration contacted 22 k panoramas before the Scranton School Dirstict contacted Facebook and her facebook came shut down because she’s not 13 and of age to have a facebooK. She was threatened by the principal to remove the video or he was going to report it and he was successful. But this should not stop here, I will be two daughters articulate I will share her storey and I hope others will share too, this Isn’t about the shares or deems or if it extends viral its about spreading awareness although be careful to ensure that smile on Cassidy’s face each time the number of views and shares get larger that was everything. Shes worried she has to start all over but let’s do this for her….please share her tale let’s introduced that smile back on her front !!!

“My name is Cassidy. I am 10 years old. I go to John Adams Elementary School. I am in 4th position. I started coming bullied in 1st gradation. One date during recess a group of adolescents grabbed my purse off of a coach, and spew on it and me. The group of boys always come up to me during recess, trying to fight me. They affected me, kicked me, attracted my hair, push things, stepped on me, spew on me … Kids don’t even want to go near me. Wherever I sit at the lunch counter, the children get up. They threaten to kill me, 2nd they tell me to kill myself. They too flood milk all over my cap. They too call me names. There’s four of them and merely 1 of me. The principal doesn’t do anything. I feel so alone, I feel like I have no one. It hurts. This is my story … Stop bullying! Not just for me, for other boys, to[ o ]. Please share my narrative! Thank you for watching! ”
Cassidy’s video was deleted from Facebook, but her mama, Jenn Slater, then uploaded it to her own personal page. Since then, Cassidy has appeared on CNN to share her anti-bullying letter and even got a warm note from actor Hugh Jackman recommending her to “never stop asking for help.”
Nearly two weeks later, Cassidy got another large-hearted meaning of the assistance provided from a terribly surprising group of people: the New York Yankees.
In a video announced to the team’s Twitter account, the Yankees responded to Cassidy’s story with a series of handwritten notations of their own. Many of the team’s performs, such as Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and CC Sabathia took part in the heartwarming video.
Hey Cassidy – we discovered the video you made and from all of us now at the New York Yankees, we want you to know that you are not alone. We have your back! https :// t.co/ uuRb0ghzf 1 pic.twitter.com/ V2EeuJ1YmW

Like Cassidy suggested, “its about” more than precisely her; it’s about all bullying.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 28% of students in tiers 6-12 event bullying, and more than 70% of students have witnessed it.
HHS has a extensive template for mothers to help coach their minors about bullying( and how to prevent it) on its website. Its tips-off include informing boys about what browbeat is, making this an ongoing dialogue, supporting kids to engage in diversions, and instilling in their own homes the values of kindness and respect.
