    I will say something because it is the right thing to do, and not only is it the right thing to do it the necessary thing to do. As a minority, I have learned as a leader that saying something is essential to change and that without saying anything you’re taking for granted the fact that you have a right and are allowed to say something and in other places people are being denied the right to say something. I will always say something not only for myself but as well as my community. By saying something I bring to the light the truth and help people by speaking up for those who aren’t allowed to say something or are too afraid. By saying something I work towards my community building a stronger relationship and fighting against violence in not only in my community but in my schools as well.

    Saying something changes a situation in an instant. It can give anyone the help they need, safe others, and create a safer environment in any type of community. I will always say something because I want to ensure the best atmosphere possible for myself and everyone I may ever come in contact with.

    I will always say something because it is vital to the safety of my peers and my community. People unconsciously show signs and reach out. What would it hurt to show that you care by saying something? It shows you’re a friend and a resource.

    Because why not? Why sit still and say nothing because you’re too scared? By saying something, you’re showing you’re going to be there for someone and you’re brave enough to reach out to them. Humans are social beings, but now that’s becoming less and less prominent. I think by saying something, you changing someone’s world entirely and that’s absolutely beautiful.

    I will always say something because it could be detrimental in ensuring someones safety. In many instances there is little that we can do ourselves other than being a shoulder to lean on. As a result, when you say something to a trusted adult, an outlet is created for necessary change to happen. When we do not say something, typically out of fear of being accused of “snitching”, we are showing a lack of empathy and care for life of the person involved. When you brush of the signs and leave actions to be made by the next person that comes by, you are taking the risk of absolutely nothing being done. Instead of taking that chance, I say something before it gets out of control.
