Students at Warren G. Harding Middle School in Philadelphia took a big stand against bullying Wednesday, thanks in part to a visit by the Cartoon Network, Sen. Bob Casey and a special video message from President Obama.
The students raised flags for the "Stop Bullying: Speak Up" campaign and were invited to sign a pledge against bullying on Facebook as part of the national launch of the campaign.
Students were also treated to a documentary on bullying that was introduced by the President.
Organizers say the bullying prevention pledge is in partnership with Facebook, the Cartoon Network and other school based events
Thursday weather looks damp and stormy. It will be mild and muggy to start with spotty showers early followed by afternoon and evening storms. Highs in the upper 70s with winds out of the SW 5-10 mph. Some of the storms will produce locally heavy rain and gusty winds.
This system is from the same cold front that caused the midwest tornadoes. It will also usher in cooler air for the holiday weekend.
