In preparation for the White House Conference on Bullying Prevention, the president and first lady released a video urging Americans to participate in helping to end bullying in schools and communities nationwide.

President Obama explained,

"For a long time bullying was treated as an unavoidable part of growing up, but more and more, we're seeing how harmful it can be for our kids -- especially when it follows them from their school to their phone to their computer screen."

Now, Obama stressed "putting a stop to bullying is a responsibility we all share."
