The story I want to share
In my story, I was the:
It happened on...
Here's what happened
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. A tactical FPS created by Valve. CS:GO has 5 official gamemodes. Team Deathmatch, Arms Race, Demolition, Casual and Competitive. I chose to queue in Competitive. I got matched up with a team whom didn't like each other very much. "KFC" didn't like "McDeesNuts" and the former started to call the latter names I cannot say. I had enough of it 4 rounds in and I told "KFC" to quiet down or else he would get kicked. He did and that was that.
3 things I want you to know
IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT IF YOU GET BULLIED!!!
If you step in on bullying, chances are the bully will stop.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
What can you do?
The community online needs to step up to bullying if we are to get anywhere in the first place. But let's say they did - then what you could do, right when the bully commits the crime of bullying, inform them of their actions so that it doesn't continue. If they do continue, others will have the courage to step up to the bully.

What I want adults to know
@parents, Comfort and encourage your child to step up to the bully and if that isn't enough, at least make them feel they are wanted in our society.
@teachers, Inform @parents about the changes in their child's behavior so they deal with it. Doing it yourself will make the child feel embarrassed.
