Stories about bullying are constantly in the news. That’s one of the reasons a segment like the one from ABC News embedded below stands out.

Is it different role models or lessons taught at home and in school? Is it a matter of peer pressure used in a positive way? I have no answers. Regardless, let’s have more of whatever the people featured in the video are doing to get these kinds of results.
