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.

GUESS WHAT? I’m back and my blog has a brand new look but I am still the old me! I am so excited about the renovations here because I want to make it easier for you to figure out all of the things that I already know.
I want you to be able to see what needs to be done to help everyone feel better about themselves no matter what their differences are! And I want to make the process faster because I am impatient sometimes!
It’s kind of like being in the dark until the curtains are opened. You know what it feels like when the warm sunshine lights up your world and the darkness goes away. Sunshine helps everyone feel better and when we feel better, we can improve the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
That’s what my new website can and will do. And guess what? Along with the new look of the site, I am going to be putting my two cents more because I know all about overcoming adversity and how important self esteem is.
That’s all there is to it! Don’t forget that I’m Rugby Jones to the rescue!
We are sure happy that you came to visit. Don’t be a stranger.
