What experiences have you had with bullying?
(9-10-07) The experiences that I have had with bullying is that one time about a year ago one of my good friends started saying a bunch of stuff about me to another one of my friends and that friend recorded the conversation on her cell phone. Then the next day at school she let a bunch of our friends listen to it and they told me about it. So I went to the girl and asked to listen to it so she let me listen and I got very upset and I ignored the girl who said the stuff about me. She didn’t know why I was ignoring her so she asked me online on AIM and I told her what was going on and she said that she was wrong and she never should of said that stuff and she apologized a bunch so I finally forgave her and now we are even closer then we were before the fight. Sometimes I think friends need to get into big fights and then make up to really know how much they really care about each other! =]
How do you feel about bullying?
(9-17-07) I think that bullying is something that everyone experiences and there’s no way to completely end it.
Film Project Experience
What do you think of this project?
(9-5-07) I think that this project is a great opportunity for all of us students in the film. I also think that this is good for the schools that will watch this film. I am excited about the process and I think it is cool that Christopher Faull, the director, chose Franklin as the school to make the film. I cannot wait to get started on the actual filming and being on an all day schedule.
How has the project been so far?
(9-7-07) It has been somewhat slow but fast at the same time. It has been fun but we just started so there has not been too much going on. However, I thought it was cool to see our school on the national ABC News. Also, it was cool being in The News Gazette. I really enjoy thinking up a story line.
What are your hopes and expectations for the coming weeks?
I hope that we can really teach other schools more about bullying and help the teachers know what to do if they see someone being bullied.
