Dec 22, 2018 @ 8:22

Bataan 1st District Representative Geraldine Roman on Friday issued a message to bullies and victims of bullying amid the controversial case at the Ateneo de Manila Junior High School.

“My heart aches for all people who have been victims of bullying, whether it’s in school, at home, or at the workplace,” the politiko wrote on her Facebook page.

“I know what it’s like, and I know the emotional pain the victims go through,” said the transgender lawmaker.

Roman stressed, “There’s no place in our society for hate and violence, especially in our schools.”

“Our schools must be safe for all young Filipinos, no matter their background,” she said.

She told victims of bullying to “stay strong,” and assured them that “things will get better.”

“A bright future is always ahead,” she said.

For those who witness “acts of bullying,” Roman urged them to “immediately report the matter to authorities.”

A high school student at the Ateneo de Manila was caught on video verbally and physically abusing and hurting another student while inside the toilet, sparking outrage against bullying.(END)
