About the Book

Does society recognize bullying as a serious issue that children and teenagers deal with every day? Do they understand the long-term negative eff ects bullying can have on a person’s life?

Author Laketta Lowery knows about bullying from her own experiences. She travels to schools and organizations as a motivational speaker, speaking out on the topic of bullying and self-esteem. In Her World of Darkness and Pain, she addresses the very serious issue of bullying head-on, fi rst by sharing her own story and then by relating ways to combat this very real problem. Bullying has become more prevalent in today’s schools, organizations, and with the younger generation. It is a very serious problem because it can lead to isolation, depression, and suicide while having a long-term eff ect on the victim’s life along with their social, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

But there is hope. Everyone can take the bullying challenge to step up and do the right thing to either prevent or stop bullying by:

- standing up and telling a bully to stop
- defending a victim
- telling an authority figure that someone is being bullied
- do all they can to raise bullying awareness
- speak out and speak up!

Do not be afraid to speak up if you see someone bullying because it’s the only way to stop this epidemic from spreading!
