從前，有一個家庭的小雲雀，跟媽媽住在玉米田裏的一個鳥巢裏。 當玉米成熟時，雲雀媽媽很小心的觀察著，看是否有收割的人前來的樣子，因爲她知道，當他們一來，他們的刀子很鋒利，會把鳥巢砍下來，傷害到雲雀娃娃。 所以，每天當她出去尋找食物時，她都會告訴小雲雀們，對經過那裡的每樣東西，都要很注意看，很注意聽。並且，當她回家時，要把所看到的事全都跟她說。 有一天，當她回到家，小雲雀們都非常害怕。 「哎呀，媽媽，親愛的媽媽，」他們說：「妳今天晚上一定要把我們搬走！農夫今天來田裡了，他並且說：『這些玉米已經可以收割了，我們必須請鄰居來幫忙。』然後，他告訴他兒子，今天晚上要去請所有的鄰人明天來收割玉米。」 雲雀媽媽笑著說：「別害怕，」她說：「假如他要等他的鄰人來收割玉米，那我們還有很多時間可以搬家，明天再跟我講他說些什麼話。」 第二天晚上，小雲雀們都發抖了，很害怕。 他們的媽媽一回到家，他們就立刻大叫說：「媽媽，妳今天晚上務必把我們搬走！今天農夫來了，並且說：『這些玉米過熟了，我們不能再等我們的鄰居。我們必須找親戚來幫助我們。』然後他叫了他兒子，並且告訴他去請所有的叔叔伯伯和堂兄弟們，明天來幫忙收割玉米。我們今天晚上還不搬家 嗎？」 「別擔心，」雲雀媽媽說：「叔叔伯伯們和堂兄弟自己還有很多收割的事要做，我們還不必搬家。」 第三天晚上，當雲雀媽媽回到家，雲雀娃娃說：「媽媽，親愛的媽媽，農夫今天來田裏，當他看到這些玉米，非常生氣，他說：『這樣不行！這些玉米太熟了，再等我們的親戚也沒有用了，我們要自己收割這些玉米。」然後他就叫他兒子，並且說：『今天晚上出去聘請收割的人，明天我們要開始收割了。』」 「那，」媽媽說：「事情不同了。當一個人自己開始做事，而不是求別人做的時候，事情都能做出個結果來的。今天晚上我就得把你們搬走！」

While I was a student at the age of 10, standing on stage was one thing I really enjoyed. When my mother told me that there was a play and tryouts were the upcoming week, I was very excited. My mother drove me over to the tryouts, and I saw that there were lots of kids who wanted to be in the play. When they told me I made it I was full of joy. I couldn’t stop thinking how much fun this would be. On the first day I realized there were a group of four girls, and the “leader” of it was this one girl, we can call her T. At first ‘T’ seemed kinda nice, but then things suddenly turned around. She started making up lies, rumors and calling me names which made me cry. They took all my joy away from me. There was a girl who couldn’t stand this bully. She and I promised eachother that we would tell the director about this problem. When I was looking for her, she was making fun of me secretly with the mean girls. I tried to tell the director, but all he said was “kids will be kids, just ignore them.” I had to tell a parent who listened, and they helped. You know the saying “sticks and stone may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”? People say that, but the words are the ones that can hurt the most. I learned that bullies will just try to break you down and make you feel bad about yourself, but they’re just doing that to make themselves feel better. Bullying is NEVER good in any way. Even to this day, I’m still partially bullied. Every now and then someone will try to tear my spirit apart… but I know that you should just ignore it because after a while they’ll just give up. If you’re a bully, just think how the other person might feel. And if you’re a victim, just tell someone that can help.
