A group of kids from Jackson and Cape Girardeau are taking a stand against bullying.
Members of the group shared their thoughts about bullying and how it’s impacted them in a video that’s getting a lot of attention online.
The video was part of an anti-bullying campaign designed to help combat bullying.
Three small companies from Jackson and Cape Girardeau, Missouri came together to try to help get the word out that this needs to stop and to get people to think about people’s actions.
The video is called Shades of Blue. It was made between Lauren Ashley Photography, Between the Scenes Studios for the Performing & Visual Arts and Cannon Cove Studios.
We talked with Lauren Ashley Photography Owner Ashley Irey about why she decided to share this video.
“I don’t remember much from my high schools years but I remember watching a girl get bullied and even pushed down the stairs,” Irey said. “I can see exactly the details of that day. So I know it’s affected me enough that I can still see it in my mind so many years later.”
