Bullies

All around the world there are people getting bullied, not just kids, but also teenagers and adults. It’s not okay just to take something out on someone that you think is different from you. It’s not okay to make fun of someone because of the color of their skin or the way they look. You don’t know if they don’t like themselves, and you can just make things worse, and maybe even make them give up their last hope they have of living.

Yes, they might not look like you, but everyone is different in their own way, it’s not their fault that they don’t look like what you want them to. It’s not O.K. just to bully someone that can’t see, or someone that can’t hear, or anyone, as a matter of fact. You might think it’s a joke, but maybe they have been though a lot of things and you don’t know how they feel when you tell them that.

According to bullyingstatistics.org, there are many people committing suicide because other people bully them because of the way they look or dress. They didn’t decide what they wanted to look like, and they only want to live and try to have a better life and ignore all the haters that are in the world. But sometimes some can’t, and they let the bullies get to them and they decide to change themselves or die. This author just hopes that these people choose life, and not let any of the bullies get to them. The bullies are often the ones with troubles, not just at school, but at home or somewhere else, and they think it’s okay to take it out on others.

People have problems with everything, but that doesn’t mean that they should take it out on other students, or people that are trying to overcome their problems. You don’t know how other people’s lives are, or how they live. You often don’t know much, you just assume what they are and how they are.

The girls swimming team

The coaches of the girls swimming team is Shmranda and Derek. They have swim meets weekly, and the varsity swimmers are in lanes 1, 2, and 3. The junior varsity swimmers are in lanes 4, 5, and 6. There are about 30-35 swimmers and 7 divers. The goal of the swimmers at practice is to reach 4-5 thousand yards.

At the swim meets, the girls are always cheerful, and they cheer: when there is only one girl in the pool, if they are on the other team, and to wish each other good luck. Even if one of the teams lose, they will be cheerful and respectful to the other team.

The swim team works really hard, and the coaches work with them to get better with whatever they need help with. The meets are really competitive, and there are areas where parents can sit with their family and watch their family member or friend compete. There is a scoreboard to see what place each person is in, which lane, and how long they have been swimming.

The team cheers when they are on their way to the meet, and they also sing songs when they are done and are heading back to school after a meet. The team cares about each other; they are like a family. They have respect for each other and they take on actions to help another person out.

The coaches tell the swimmers what they need to improve on and how they can do it. The swimmers have workout day; that’s when the swimmers have to work outside of the pool. The workouts consists of push ups and other regular workout routines. The junior varsity team does smaller things than the varsity. The varsity group goes to the weight room and does exercises. They warm up before they get to competing.
