Scared to step in and help when you see someone being bullied? So was he. Thoughts from the best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars.
It takes a lot of courage to step into a bullying situation and cease being a bystander and become a person who is actively engaged in trying to stop bullying. That's a difficult thing to do and, you know, I certainly failed to do it many times when I was a kid.
