Nassau County Girl Scouts brings anti-bullying to synagogues, JCCs.
I t happened two years ago, but it is still fresh in the mind of Avigail Borah, 11, of Hewlett, L.I. “A bunch of people — maybe four or five — were yelling at someone I knew during recess,” she recalled. “They were yelling things like, ‘You’re so stupid.’ I told them to stop yelling at her, and then some other people joined me in telling them to stop. They stopped.”
Asked if she had ever been bullied, Avigail said it had happened once when she was in the second or third grade.
