~You Don’t Know What Goes On Behind Your Back, by Alexis
“Here is a cartoon about gossip/rumors/bullying/teasing. The boy in the picture has words on his back because they are words that people are saying behind his back. When he sees these words, he is hurt. Talking behind someone’s back is a horrible thing to do. Everyone has been a victim and everyone has been the person saying these things to a victim.
I drew this for three reasons:
1. it’s for a class assignment.
2. I haven’t been drawing in a few weeks because I’ve been sick and busy.
3. Lately, I’ve been on Youtube looking up videos about bullying/cyperbullying and the sad thing is . . . it’s not going to go away.
When I was growing up, I was picked on for being weird. Someone asked me if I had ADD because of the way I was acted as a kid. But HEY! I didn’t let that get me down!Because I didn’t know what it was until I Googled it. People bully all the time. There are many reasons why they do it and unfortunately there’s nothing we can do about it.”
