The video “Bully” By Lee Hirsch has become an epidemic because bullying has pushed kids to the point of not only hurting themselves but as far as suicide. Bullying isn’t just when you see someone get pushed down or beat up or have their lunch money stolen bullying is also calling people mean names and crushing their spirits or saying hurtful stuff. This documentary of bullying show’s us that there is bullying going on in the world and that it isn’t just a couple of kids in each school but more of the whole school bullying a couple of kids. It also shows us that when you’re a nobody that no one in the community will really care or stand up for you over if you're a politician kid or someone well known.
    In the documentary “Bully” by Lee Hirsch shows us that the community or the school administrators won't care or help you unless if the problem becomes “big” enough in the society.This leads kids to believe that no matter what they do no one can help them and the problem won’t cease to stop. Most adults try to make kids grow up too fast and deal with their own problems unless if its their own kids. Some school’s and officers do a great job of stopping bullying but mostly kids have to deal with it on themselves. Is it pride, fear, pain? Some tend to believe that it’s because they don’t know how to deal with the problem on their own so when they do go to adults for help and they don’t help they have nowhere else to turn. Lee Hirsch show’s us what is really happening in world and that bullying is really true. Hirsch show’s us that even though some of the teachers and parents in the community think that they’re making a difference even though they really aren’t. This leads people to think what they can do differently to help stop bullying. People have started clubs and support groups, to try and help bullying but even if they do someone else will always be out there bullying. The truth behind it all is that even though you can have all the people in the world to stand up for you and help you get threw bullying the only person who can really get it to stop is the person getting bullied.
