Saranya Witness Upstander Bystander Introduction A person who sees an event, typically a crime or accident, take place A person who is present at an event or incident but does not take part A person who is present at an event or incident and takes a part and stands up for the right side When my friend's mom was in high school, she would often find other students being picked on. So, she would forcefully interfere in the "bullying" and try to forcefully talk the bully out of the bullying. Each time, however, she would end up with detention. My mom was walking home from school when she saw a teddy bear near a sewer. There was no one around, so she kept the teddy bear. It was her first teddy bear. She was very excited, so she took it to school the next day. It was in her backpack when she was talking about it at school. Then, an older girl said that's my teddy bear. So, my mom asked, "OK, what does it look like?" Then the older girl said, "I'm not telling." The older girl was bullying my mom when Ted Belford came up and said, "Hey, back off," to the mean girl. My mom got to keep the teddy bear thanks to Ted Belford. My mom found a girl wandering around the store. The kid was about three years old. She stayed with the kid until her mom came and she handed her back. My dad was walking to his car downtown. He saw a homeless man begging for money from many people. They all ignored him. The homeless man asked for just a few cents and my dad emptyed his pockets of a handful of coins. This Hutu soldier could not bear seeing innocent people being killed for no apparent reason. He started rescuing Tutsis over the border and had rescued more than 50 before the soldiers caught on, causing him to flee. Kamegeri Augustin, a Hutu, risked his life and gave a Tutsi woman, whose family had been murdered, shelter in the bee forest in which the soldiers were too afraid to go in Rwanburindi Enoch, a Hutu villager, and his wife sheltered Tutsis in their house. When they ran out of space, they built a new house on their property and kept more Tutsis in there. He was also forced to go and face the burgomaster, or the mayor, and all the Tutsis and his family lost hope of seeing him again, but nevertheless, he always came back. He also had the urge of neighbors to evict the refugees. "Have you ever been or experienced someone be an upstander over the course of your life?" This was an upstander moment. This was an example in the point of view of when an upstander helped you This is an upstander moment This was an example of an upstander moment Reflection "We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone." ~Ronald Reagan This genocide project has given us a different perspective of what we take for granted even when talking about what is taken for granted. The victims' lives in the Rwandan genocide were not valued and mass slaughters were executed. It opened our eyes as to how brutal the world really is and inspired us on how we could make a difference and take a step in the right direction for peace.
