    Saying Something is so important. If I am not the one to say something, it’s possible no one else will. We tend to think that someone else will. But if everyone is thinking that, who’s going to be the one to say it?! It’s better to say something 5 times then to not say something at all. It can save lives and it has before!

    I say something because who else will? There is a theory called ‘diffusion of responsibility’ that humans tend to abide by. This is where people think that others are going to take responsibility of the situation and go seek help. I refuse to go by that ideology. I will always say something because I believe it is MY responsibility to help others in need. We are living in a world that is surrounded by negativity and hatred. We must overcome this hatred by being kind to one another and helping each other out. From now on, I want YOU to say something. I want YOU to take a stand and be an ambassador of kindness in your own community. With all of us saying something, the world will change for the better!

    I say something because I don’t understand how anyone could not say something. Every life is worth saying something for. Every person is worth saying something for. I may not know them personally or I may be very close to them but no matter the case, if I see the signs I always speak up. It isn’t worth risking a life or a horrible situation for the sake of fear or uncertainty. Most importantly, I say something because I believe it is the right thing to do. We must be the change we wish to see in this world and I wish to see a world in which every person is safe and valued and in which every person values those around them, especially the safety of those around them. For this reason, I say something to set an example for others, to show them what is right, and to teach them how they can proactively make the world a safer and friendlier place.

    I will always say something because it’s always important to speak up to keep yourself and others safe. By saying something, you can prevent incidents that ma save someone’s life or help someone while going through hard times. If you see something, hear something, or know anything that is alarming, make sure you tell a trusted adult.

    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.
