The bullying epidemic is a global issue that has moved into schools, homes, workplaces, professional sports associations, churches and government. Sometimes that bullying leads to violence.
Gabriella van Rij has launched a national anti-bullying campaign based on her slogan "We as a society have dropped the ball on Human Kindness. Will you help me pick it up?" The goal of this campaign is to reach as many people as possible and to get everyone to join the movement.
The basketball with Gabriella's slogan represents a child. Each time we drop it, it is important to pick it up quickly before we lose more lives due to bullying and cyber-torment.
She is here on Sunrise to talk more about the issue.
