On Wednesday, November 2, Liberty Center High School and Middle School held an assembly about bullying with guest speaker Jim Bisenius. North Star Bluescope sponsored the event. He talked to students about why bullies choose the people they do, intimidation tactics, different types of fear, and what you can do to stop bullies. He mentioned that body language is a big deal, bullies can smell fear, and they’re more likely to target you if you act weak.  Bullies see weakness in certain types of body language like putting your head down, constant eye moving, and lips trembling. If you are being bullied, talk to someone about it because things could get bad if you keep it to yourself.
