Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard, and rookie, Damian Lillard appears here in a Portland Trail Blazers anti-bullying campaign that can be watched on the Trail Blazers website. Bullying, namely “cyber bullying” has become a real problem in the United States over the past few years. With the continued growth of social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, it can really make life hard on kids who are being bullied on a regular basis. The days of being bullied solely at school and during social situations, such as playing outside, or hanging somewhere outside the comfort of your own home are over. Kids who are getting picked on at school now come home to find that even the safety of their own houses aren’t quite what they used to be. Bullies now take to social media as a means to pick on, and say hurtful things about kids they feel are weird, or socially awkward. When I was a kid, you could go home and tune these bullies out. These days, with the way the internet is, some of these kids can’t even get away from being bullied in their own homes. Kids picking on other kids via Twitter and Facebook has become a real issue, and I applaud Damian Lillard for sticking up for them and doing what’s right. This clip talks about “respect, taking responsibility for your actions and standing up for yourself. Great messages for kids who may not know any better.
