Day 22 (5/17)

Imagine a friend of yours is standing outside a classroom and making fun of another student. He is mocking him endlessly for the way he looks, and you can tell the teasing is starting to get to the other boy. You are standing next to your friend while the teasing is going on, but say nothing. Are you guilty of bullying as well? Why or why not?
