To the parents, students, teachers, bullying targets and bystanders, I ask you if this story applies to any of you? If it does, please change your thinking now. Please!
There were 500 students in a school. They all had similar names. Some of them were named Everybody. Some of them were named Somebody. Some were named Anybody and some were named Nobody.
When the students, teachers and parents found out that there was bullying going on in the school, Everybody was sure that Somebody would do something about it.
Anybody could have helped the situation but Nobody did.
Somebody got angry about the bullying going on because it was up to Everybody to do something to help the kids being bullied but Nobody did.
Everybody did absolutely nothing because they thought that Anybody could have helped to solve the problem.
Everybody thought that Anybody would help.
Nobody realized that Everybody would do nothing to help.
As it happened, Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done to stop the bullying.
