Our British friends gave us the Call to Action about Bullying so we are focusing on them. If you are a vicitim of bullying or want resources for your area, you can try

REFLECTIONS:
We think that by learning about how bullying is a problem in other places of the world we can be better at dealing with it here at home. Bullies are everywhere. Sometimes it is a good thing to stand up to one. Sometimes you should tell an adult. There are a lot of resources out there to help. What we learned was that we are not alone. It made us feel good to help others. The Voiceless didn't beat us on this mission!

A letter from our friends:
Dear Preston, Ashton, and Fortune,
Your game is fun to play! We learned a lot and enjoyed writing with you. It was fun to see what other people around our world think about bullying. Thank you for sharing your "genius" with us.
Sincerely,
Donovan, Charlie, and Kate
