“HAHA I know, right,” said his friend laughing too. “I heard that the new kid, Alex Libby has Asperger's,” said someone on the bus laughing ridiculously.
Alex, a young boy who lived in Iowa city, got on the yellow bus cheerlessly every morning with his heavy books and a bag. People would stare at him and gossip about how he looked and how he has no friends. Why is this so hard I can’t make any friends at all Alex thought sadly in his math class. He was slacking off in all of his classes because no one wanted to talk or be anywhere near him.
One day someone started poking him and punching him. Every day it got worse and worse. People would start choking and strangling him. People even threatened to kill him and break his bones.
He didn’t want to say or do anything because he just wanted one friend in his new school, Edlin Oklahoma Middle school in Iowa city. Until one day Lee Hirsch, a high school student who rode on the same bus and saw the bullying, asked Alex if he would like to star in a documentary about bullying.
Lee Hirsch began filming the documentary about bullying and included five other people who were getting bullied as well as Alex.
After the documentary was published on the internet and people all over the world watched it, classmates from Alex’s classes started talking to him. People realised that Alex was a nice and funny guy and started to feel differently about him. He now has lots of friends because of the documentary, ‘Bully’.
People in Alex’s school started being nicer to Alex and that made Alex feel happy and he felt much better about himself.
After that, Alex came to school every day with a smile on his face. Every morning he had someone to talk to on the bus. He was becoming much more confident day after day and he started talking to many more people in his classes.
The sadness has gone away and happiness came flashing by him. Slowly Alex grows tougher every day with friends and family beside him.
Now Alex talks to people who are getting bullied and helps them get through what he was going through. “If people are trying to bring you down it only means you are above them,” Alex said. Now the world hears the voice of this young teenage boy from Iowa city and listens.
Alex got bullied until the end of Middle School, in eighth grade. He had no friends until the documentary that Lee Hirsch made about bullying. At Edlin Oklahoma Middle school, people were bullied because of theirs looks and how popular they were. Now Alex Libby is known all around the world. He even appeared on national T.V and he also went to visit the white house. He also meets many celebrities in the world like Victoria Justice.
