I Care Because

Bullying hurts alot. I know. Everyone is created equal. everyone is beautiful. theres nothing wrong with being different because different is good.Not bad. i think its better to be yourself instead of trying to be popular or the coolest. If you want to be the best that you can BE YOU, dont listen to the world if there saying bad things about you just be you.

Michael, 11, Minnesota

i got bullied for 2 years i never did anything or had anyone by my side i was alone. but i do now how it feels to be bullied its a feeling that a person may or wouldnt understand.it can affect a person so much that it can get to a piont were there just done.and its very important to speak up, stand up ,or tell an adult.if you see a person getting bullied its best to do something tell someone to make them stop  before its to late.it can be hard but its the best thing to do. 

Molly, 15, California, Riverside

From 1th To 5th Grade I Was Bullied By Class Mates & People I Once Considerd my "Friends".
I Switched Schools And Made New Friends..
But Even With A New Life, Bullying Still Affects Me Today. I Have Depression  From It And Sever Anxeity..

Think BEFORE You Say Something..
Words Hurt More Than Actions.

Sara, 14, ND

Somw girls in my grade would always tell me they loved me and one time I walked into a conversation about how i was 'absolutely horrific' to put it in their terms... They then started doing it to my face and i almost ate lunch alone every day... a couple guys would sit with me every once in a while but the girls just isolated me. This verbal and lack of attention bullying was and is getting on my nerves and I want it to stop. Not just for me, but for other people who are also going through this... and I definately want it to stop for those in the future so they don't suffer too. I've always wanted to make a change.
