Finding Your True North reveals how destructive bulling can be. Bahá’í principles direct us to strive to be a source of hope and unity, not of sadness and disunity. One out of four students is bullied every day in the United States. Charlie is fourteen year old and is one of those students. His alcoholic father also verbally abuses him, thus causing Charlie to have low self-esteem. Charlie doesn’t feel he can change his situation by staying at home, so he runs away. As he moves about his small town, he learns important life-changing lessons. Sometimes bullying can be too difficult for someone to handle alone. A small act of support, understanding, or friendship with someone suffering from bullying can make a positive impact.
