Bullying is a big problem in the United States. It affects so many different people. One of every four teens is bullied, that is 25% of teens. Over 160,000 stay home from school every day because they feel threatened by another student. This is unacceptable. Every person should be able to go to school and learn without feeling threatened or endangered. Another scary statistic is that one of three students have heard someone say to another student that they were going to kill them. Every seven minutes a child is bullied. These seven minutes can add up really fast. My Hexagon was created to expose the harsh effects of bullying. Each tear has a word inside of it that a bully might say to their victim. The glitter around each tear represents the many students that have had that said to them. The glitter in the corner of the Hexagon represents how we need to come together and end bullying. I am so saddened by how many people are bullied. I have been bullied before and it is not a fun experience to go through. I know that this has made me stronger. Each person is a human being and we should all have the same rights.

I liked how you used glitter for the tears because it really represents them well, like they are flicker in the light.
