Dulles Middle School “Pinks Out Bullying”
In observance of Stand Up to Bullying Day, the students and staff at Dulles Middle School (DMS) wore pink to demonstrate their support of the national campaign. By participating in the campaign, the DMS family joined caring citizens across the nation in sending a loud message of resistance to bullies, while identifying themselves to victims as a source of support willing to help and draw attention to the effects of bullying.
The color pink was derived from a campaign initiated by Travis Price and David Shepherd, two high school seniors who took a stand to support a freshman student who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. This act of leadership among the students provides a great example for those who are hesitant about displaying their own personal stance against bullying.
