“Do The Write Thing” is a unique opportunity for adolescents to express their experiences with bullying and offer suggestions as to what actions could have improved their situation. Bullying and youth violence in our schools and neighborhoods is a problem that needs to be addressed. The classroom discussions provide a safe platform for developing empathy for another human being. Do the Write Thing is a program that would benefit students of all levels, elementary through high school.”

“With a pen my thoughts were set free onto the paper. It was a way of expressing my self in a nonviolent way. So once I wrote my essay about preventing violence I realized what I was doing. In my “Do The Write Thing” essay, I wrote that many people hold in anger not knowing how to express it, leading to fights. That’s exactly what I was doing before I found what I used to express my anger. So thank you once again for creating the Do the Write Thing Challenge, because of this I’ve learned what kept my anger from getting unstable.”

“This experience has been a life changing event for Miguel. This program has been a very positive experience. We have
broadcasted and promoted the DTWT at Miguel’s school I think it’s a very important program and everyone should participate.”

“I wanted to reach out and thank you for everything you have done for me. I was a national finalist in 2005 and was able to express my experiences in the Yugoslav war because of the platform you provided me. After that incredible experience, I went on to graduate high school as valedictorian and matriculated at the University of Texas at Austin with the intention of becoming a doctor. I graduated from college this May with degrees in Biology and Humanities in the top 1% of students and in three weeks I will begin the MD program at Harvard Medical School.”
