Each year, more than 3.2 million students are victims of bullying. Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because they are bullied by their peers. Meet Lewis. As a typical Brevard County high school student, Lewis was active in marching band and AP classes. “I really like music,” he says. “My real passion is jazz band. I play electric bass.” Lewis also was active in ROTC, and he vividly recalls an interaction he had repeatedly with one of his adult instructors.
