Although, he mentions Sacagawea quite often, he does bring up other people as well.
This truely is a great escape for Alex and the tough task will eventually lead to his demise. The task indeed proved to be too much for this unprepared boy ready for his freedom from his life and the feeling of being held down.

Alex was on Bully not only because he wanted to stop getting bullied, but also because it focuses on families coping with the abuse of their children that they are facing from bullying. It also focuses on trying to show what kids are facing when they are getting bullied, and what it looks like.
