“Whether it’s talking down on your peers or classmates, your own family members, gossiping on the Internet, or teasing people, there are so many ways that you can become a bully without even realizing it. We all need to be aware of the effects of our actions.” “You never know how much your words, or your actions can help or push someone over the edge. “Growing up in Detroit I’ve seen many people around me suffer from depression, because of issues they were faced with, and for one person I knew who was close to our family, it even lead to suicide. These issues are too real.” “I want you all to remember, we are all more alike than different. We all have dreams and goals, and we’re all on the pursuit of happiness.”
WAY TO GO BIG SEAN!!!! THE YOUTH NEEDS THIS POSITIVITY!
