- Describe a bullying situation from one of the resources above. What does the situation cover?

It shows that if you think twice about what you’re going to say or how it might make someone feel you might not send the message.
- In your own words, what do you think it means to be a Digital Leader?
I think it means, if you see someone saying something mean over social media then you say something to someone, or you tell them to stop because it’s not okay to make someone feel like they don’t want to be alive.
