Bullying is a generational epidemic that knows no boundaries. It is worldwide and the statistics are staggering. According to the American Justice Department, one out of every four children is a victim of bullying and at least two children are bullied every seven minutes. 

Ty Smalley was the typical kid. Shaggy hair, playful spirit, wide smile and bully victim. In response to years of abuse, Ty took his own life at 11 years old. In the wake of this horrific tragedy, Kirk and Laura Smalley began Stand for the Silent, a program to address school bullying with an engaging, factual and emotional methodology. This event is co-sponsored with the School Community Intervention & Prevention (SCIP) Program.
