I Care Because

Bullying effects the lives of so many because people feel stressed and can suffer from depression. When people risk their own lives because they have experienced bullying. Bullying not only effects the the victim but also their family and friends. Bullying effects the lives of so many also because of the rude and nasty comments said by the bully. The comments said puts the victim in a position which they don't want to be in, and therefore they risk their life because one person can't control what they are saying to others!

  I'm being bullied right now. It's scary, and it hurts and the thought of bullying is always there in your mind. No matter what you do you can't stop thinking about it. I lost most of my "bestfriends" during the time I was being bullied, but now I know who my real friends are. 
     If you see someone being bullied, SPEAK UP. Bullies cannot bully unless you give them the power to do so. TALK to the victim if you see them being bullied. Invite them to sit with you if they're alone. 
    Nobody deserves to live as a victim. You're worth it.

Witnessing bullying and doing nothing to stop it is almost as bad as being bullied. Stand up for your friends.

One day I walked down the hall and my friend walked past me crying. I asked her what was wrong and she started sobbing and told me how she was being bullied. I had her talk to our wonderful counsler so things were better for her. WE NEED TO CHANGE<3

I've been bullied at school and I decided to speak up and talk about it to my class mates and my teachers to stop it cause I don't want anyone to go through this. We can make a change! Bullying needs to stop! something needs to be done. I know that most of the people which are bullied are shamed and don't want to talk about it to their parents, family, or friends but it can be really dangerous and you're not alone, WE ARE HERE. Nobody deserves to be treated like it. It's okay to be different. You're perfect, you're beautiful in your own way. WE CAN CHANGE IT.

Students have the power to create change in their communities to prevent bullying, but they aren’t always recognized for their hard work. On February 24th, however, at the “Green Lights Against Bullying” fashion show in New York, one young woman will be recognized for her work to prevent bullying in her school, community, and around the country. Christina Wagner, co-chair of PACER’s Faces of Change student group, will be awarded a college scholarship in recognition of her amazing national efforts to help keep students safe from bullying.

Christina was chosen as the recipient of this award because of her incredible story of enduring and ultimately overcoming being bullied. One of the organizers of the event, Rick Galvin, said that they were all very moved by Christina’s story. “We respect Christina for overcoming it [bullying] and turning this negative into a positive and helping her peers. We knew we had to help so she can continue to grow and help others.” Christina writes, “This event couldn’t mean more to me. Thanks to PACER, I have finally taken my voice back, after being silenced for so long, and to be honored for that is truly amazing. I’m so grateful for the financial help with college, that means so much to me and my family. I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of an amazing thing like bullying prevention. It’s truly inspiring to know how many people really do care.”

The event, hosted by Saboroma, will feature singer Meredith O’Connor performing her new song “Just the Thing” and includes a fashion show, silent auction, and live jazz band. Learn more about the event.

PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center wishes to extend our congratulations to Christina for this honor and express our gratitude to Saboroma and Meredith O’Connor for their support of bullying prevention.
