Has anyone seen the show What Would You Do? If you haven't, above I left a clip of a scenario they have done. Basically what the show is about is they play different scenarios and see how bystanders would react. They usually have a mix of heartwarming and difficult situations like racism, discrimination, and abuse to name a few. It's inspiring to see that there are so many good people who are willing to step in when they see something wrong happening to another human being. Unfortunately, there are those who are too scared to step in, which is understandable, but also those who agree with the way a person is being mistreated. I admit that I’ve even shed a tear in many of the scenarios because some of these are very true to real life. These things happen all the time whether we see it or not. Not every scenario is sad. There are also some funny moments usually towards the end of the show to end it with a good note. I hope that more people watch this show and get inspired to help out when they see someone in need. When I first started watching the show, it became one of my favorite shows because of how inspiring it was.

I did come across the show through youtube as most of their segments are played online. The show does tackle serious topics such as Teen abuse or possible rape, maltreatment, sexual racism and many more. I find the concept fascinating whether to see of a person is brave enough and willing to stand up for someone else, whether they are being bullied or being tricked. I mostly think I have seen the videos and for me my favorite skits involve the adults or even other kids the same age, standing up for the kids who are being bullied.

Hello Carina,

I have not watched this show, nor ever even heard of it. But I am glad that you brought something like this up, especially around this time of year. You never know what other people are going through but sticking up for someone when they may not be able to do themselves shows that we can all come together as one and not stereotype, not pick on one another, we are all equal. I think it shows how much of a human we can be to get emotional about topics like this but to show others that we may not know one another, etc. but I will have your back when I see someone getting mistreated.

Great topic and post!
