BOSTON (CBS) -Everyone dislikes bullies and one North Shore teen decided to do something about it.

Maisie Miller attends Marblehead High School and had been bullied.

One day, she wore pigtails and was teased horribly.

Instead of hiding, Miller went home and got on Facebook to say how hurt she was by the bullying.

Miller asked her fellow classmates to stand up to the bullies with her and wear pigtails.

The next day, dozens of girls and boys showed up to school rocking pigtails.

Her friend made a Facebook page called Pigtails 4 Peace and it got 500 fans in 24 hours.
