Students in Jackson County are taking a stand against bullies by wearing pink to school Wednesday.

The students' efforts are part of national Pink Shirt Day.

According to organizers, bullying in any form can lead to a host of problems for teens, including suicide. Local students are saying enough is enough.

Students at Columbia Middle School wrote bad memories of bullying on pink paper and then burned it.

Students at Jackson High School will paint the big rock in front of the school pink on Wednesday.

    Changing behavior, like bullying, is a long process that begins with providing awareness and knowledge. Wearing Pink is only one of many activities we are doing at Columbia MIddle School. Ours is a yearlong effort, which kicks off in a big way today. Contact us if you want to learn more.

    Pink!!! Last I knew pink shirt day was for breast cancer awareness. Any boy who doesn't want to be bullied should not wear pink to school. In my opinion that would create more problems for the young man. Who comes up with this stuff?

    While I think anything to discourage bullying is a wonderful thing. I wonder if anyone considered that the kids who are the bullys will also be wearing pink to show they are part of the group. Some of these bullies don't even realize what they are doing, they are "just playing around" or they just don't like someone. They aren't bullies, just ask them.

    Today I will be keeping my son home to celebrate bullying. He as been being bullied by an older girl on the school bus daily since last year! This year more kids have joined in bullying him because of excessive weight gain because of a medical condition.this week a girl called him gay in front of the whole class because his hair was neatly cornrowed. he is only 8. I don't think sending him to school wearing pink will help the situation for him..
