    I think that people should celebrate Columbus day if they want. If they don’t, no problem just celebrate the Indians.

  2. #nobullying

    I think bullying is a big problem in the u.s. I think every student should sign something saying they wont bully or they will get kicked out of school for 3 days.

      I totally agree but the thing it is someone bully somebody they should get punished like having them be suspended for a while years a little bit too much but it just depends on the school and what they actually did I feel like that it’s completely 100 percent completely the child’s faul
      t just because of some things going on in their house that their parents should discipline them and not have them be a bully
