Bullying occurs very often, sometimes without us even realizing. It can also happen in many different forms: social and emotional, verbal, physical and cyber. There are many different reasons why bullying takes place and many ways we can stop or prevent it from happening. We will be talking about these things today in our story.
Kenji was bullied for many years for his odd name. A few things you should know about Kenji are: he was adopted and his parents don’t really have a lot of money. Almost everyone made fun of him and no one wanted to be his friend except for a girl named Nina who is his best friend. They have been best friends ever since kindergarten and they are now in the seventh grade. Kenji never really cared about what other people said about his name because he thinks his birth parents gave him the best name ever. Well he never did used to care until one day he was at school hanging out with Nina during recess, on the playground, when a kid named Cade came up to him.
