Does Bullying Build Character?
Today I want to have my first ever debate about Bullying.
Does bullying build character? I strongly agree that it does. Before you start to jump down my throat let me tell you why.
NO I DO NOT THINK BULLYING IS RIGHT AT ALL! SO DON’T DO IT.
We all know Chris Rock right? The funny man, he’s always cracking jokes about people or making everyone laugh. Believe it or not he use to be the butt end of the jokes back in the day at school. Can you guess why? If you answered he was bullied you would be right. At school, Chris Rock would endure countless hours of bullying. Do you know how he handled the bullying? He told jokes. Instead of giving in and listening to all the negativity he took the road less travel by and that has made all the difference for him. Thus building his character, If Chris Rock would have never went threw that he would have never had his hit TV show ” Everybody Hates Chris” which is about his childhood life and the struggles that he went threw. Looking at his success today, him being one of the most recognizable comedians that have lasted over the years. Chris Rock is the one having the last laugh at his bullies.
Steve Jobs Apple’s Co-Founder was bullied as a kid at school. Steve Jobs was a kid who like to keep to himself and the things that he liked to do; which was playing with gadgets and different electronics. One day Steve Jobs was fed up with the bullying, so he went to his adoptive parents and told them to transfer him from that school or he would never attend school again. They transferred him to a different school and at that school he saw his very first computer. Now that you have heard a little back story about his childhood just think what if Steve never got bullied he wouldn’t have grown into the person that he was. He would have never saw/ played with a computer, and if not for bullying we would not have Apple and Steve would have not been the person he was born to be, a leader. Bullying has built his character into becoming the icon that he is today.
Do you think Bullying builds character comment on this post to let you voice to be heard.
