Bullying has been a big issue in our state this year, particularly in the wake of the suicide of a Greenwich High School student. Bart Palosz killed himself after suffering through a long period of being bullied.
The sad fact is that bullying happens in many schools. This week on Face the State, our guests were three three courageous teenagers who are talking about being bullied and their effort to stop it. Taylor Tanguay and Helen Mendenhall are students at Nathan Hale Ray High in Moodus, and Gillian Bransfield attends the Williams School in New London.
The trio of friends put together a video that is going viral. You can watch it right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRKSDNhd1dE
On Sunday, the girls appeared on Face the State to talk about bullying they endured, the reaction to the video, and they even shared the story of a bully who apologized because of the video.
