Beautiful Anti-Bullying Song, Written by a Student, Is Taking Over East Brunswick
She's recording a demo album, too

Kathleen Lonski thought that her school’s anti-bullying campaign left out a big piece of the picture. Though the school was trying to stop bullying, she didn’t see any support for victims of bullying. Though she hadn’t directly experienced bullying herself, she saw a need for advice and empathy for her classmates. With her insightful look at the problem, her creative approach to a solution was fitting. She picked up her guitar, applied lessons from her after-school music composition club, and wrote a song. With “Don’t Let Them In,” she has rallied the school district and the whole community. Almost every school in her East Brunswick school district has played the song, and she performed the song at the East Brunswick Performing Arts Center to a standing ovation. Building on the success, she’s recording a demo album, hoping her message will continue to spread in support of victims of bullying.
