That's a Good Question!

This kid at school keeps calling this other guy names. He makes sure that there is a group around, and gets everybody laughing. I think it's mean, but I don't know how to stop it. What should I do?
Standing up for others can be hard, but is always worthwhile. If you feel comfortable, when you see this happen you could tell the group that everybody has a right to respect. You could also make a little time to reassure the victim in private that there are good people, and some people just haven't learned how important it is to show respect to everyone.

It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.
