MACON – In east Macon, community leaders and teenagers came together Monday to talk about a different type of danger– school bullying.

Inidieia Davis told us how she tackled the problem in her own life and how hopes sharing her story will motivate youth facing the same scenario.

Davis, 26, wants every kind of violence to end, especially in her home town.

“I think that everybody has to stop the violence because there is so much killing going on, like every day we get up or every night we’re hearing gunshots,” Davis said.She’s not exactly sure the best ways to end every problem, however she wants to begin with the one that she has actually dealt with head on– bullying.

“As a little lady, I was always bullied. I have a speech issue, I have difficulty with my hearing, however something about it … I never ever let it bother me,” Davis said.She shared her

story with kids and teenagers who may be dealing with the very same issues and the Bibb County Constable’s Office urged the neighborhood to help.

“The constable’s department is only as good as its neighborhood. We can refrain from doing exactly what we need to do without you men,” stated Lt. Thomas with the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

They want teens like the ones who invested their Presidents Day vacation at this conference to speak-up and understand they matter.

“Now I’m aiming to help these young kids, and motivate these young kids about a few of the things that I have actually been through as a child and I do not desire them to be bullied,” Davis said.She thinks online forums like this deal the start to a service, but more work is required to cause change.” That is why our community has to come, so we can all sit down as one, and make this entire thing stop before it goes too far,”Davis said.Macon-Bibb NAACP president Gwenette Westbrooks stated they plan on having more occasions like the one held Monday throughout Macon. © 2018 WMAZ-TV
