5 WHEREAS, the school shooting on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School
6 in Littleton, Colorado, during which fifteen students and a teacher were
7 killed and 23 other students were wounded, was an event set apart in our
8 hearts and memories; and

11 changes to prevent repetition; and
12 WHEREAS, many organizations, school districts, educators and parents have
13 publicly expressed concern about the bullying of children; and

18 bullying occurs every seven minutes; and
19 WHEREAS, bullying may consist of physical incidents of hitting, kicking,
20 or choking, verbal threats, teasing and taunting, or systematic exclusion from
21 activities; and
22 WHEREAS, providing a safe physical and emotional environment is a signifi-
23 cant goal and a personal responsibility of each individual; and
24 WHEREAS, in remembrance of the Columbine shootings, and as a symbol of our
25 year-round struggle against bullying, it is appropriate that we designate a
26 week to emphasize the importance of our endeavors.
