WLOX Editorial: Stop bullying

Nobody likes to be pushed around physically nor mentally. But according to studies 20 to 25 percent of youth, middle and high school age, are being bullied every week. And far to often, we all just dismiss it.

Bullying can result in physical injuries, social and emotional difficulties, and academic problems for our youth. It is time for us take a stand against the bullies of the world.

Monday from 4pm to 7pm WLOX News will open up our Stop Bullying Hotline. If you or someone you know is being tormented, we will have experts here to answer your calls. The experts can provide comfort and guidance.

Bullying should not be tolerated. Watch for our special reports and the hotline number from 4 to 7pm Monday, and help us take a stand against bullies.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
