The first video above was recorded by bullying victim Jonah Mowry. Mowry uses nothing but flash-cards throughout the video, titled “What’s Goin’ On,” to express his unbearable pain and self-mutilation, not to mention the fact that he’s contemplated suicide more than once.
Nearly 3 million people have watched it , with messages of support pouring in from strangers and major celebrities(Lady Gaga tweeted “Thank you Jonah for being brave enough to share your story + showing us strength. You matter to millions.”)
The video begins with Mowry holding up a hand-written card, “I look happy, right?” followed by, “Well, I’M NOT. What you all see is the fake me.” He uses cards throughout the video to tell his story, which includes a lifetime of bullying, of being called “Gay. Fag. Dick. Douche. Homo. Asshole.” (Mowry doesn’t specify his sexuality in the video but on Twitter he says he’s gay.)
“A lot of people hate me,” he writes, wiping away tears. “I don’t know why… But I guess I do. Cuz I kinda hate me too.”
And while he admits that suicide was something he considered “many times,” Mowry states in one of his final cards, “I’m not going anywhere. Because I’m STRONGER than that and…I have a million reasons to be here.”
RED, the second video: A bunch of bullies meet a red-haired boy on a playground. Would you have the courage to stand by one in need despite dangerous odds?
Third video: If you help (for example someone who is being bullied), you will probably be rewarded, even if your only reward is self-satisfaction
