I Care Because

Bullying is a cruel punishment bestowed on weaker/younger individuals. Whenever I was in sixth grade all of the seventh, and eighth graders would make fun of us since we were younger. Back then I thought it was normal for them to bully us, but since I'm in eighth grade now I've found out this behavior is unacceptable! Kids never should feel that bullying is normal, and nobody deserves to be put down.

Whoever is reading this dont let the bully bring you down you are so better than them. BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.

My 13 year old brother has Autism and is marked as a target for bullies because he's different.  School life for him is miserable, and he doesn't have friends.  I believe the bullying affects other parts of his life like school work.

There are so many beautiful people that change themselves for other people and turn themselves into something that they are not and it just makes me sick that some people would sit there and pick on them and hurt them and go OVER the limit  that that person has nothing to live for!!!! And when those people arent there anymore those bullies didnt even have a chance to say sorry!!!! And i know it isnt right to think this but i hope those bullies live with that in their head and i hope they feel terrible about it!!! LETS STOP BULLYIONG TODAY BY SIMPLY GOING UP TO A PERSON THAT IS BULLIED AND TELL THEM THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE FINE AND THAT YOU ARE THERE AND THEY ARE SAFE KNOW!!!! SO LETS STOP THE BULLYING AND TAKE A STAND!!

It hurts.  I wish people didn't bully.  I wish they were happy with themselves.  I wish people could just be nice.  A lot of people arw bullied and it's just not right.  Everyone says ya it's bad but the people that actually do something like tell an adult are the ones that are putting a stop to bullying.  Thank you Pacer's for letting my voice be heard.

These kids who are bullying are our future. Someday -- soon -- they will be leading this world and have more power than they should. Can you imagine what the world will be like once these kids have all the power they want? I am against bullying because it is a greater problem than anyone believes. We need to step up and get to the root of the problem and fix it. Because if we can't do it, then who can?

I know what it's like to feel low after someone has put you down. Everything has been nearly perfect in my life until this year bullies at school. From this message forward, I'm telling you to not care, and don't buy into the pressure. The bullies that got away, will get karma. Lucklily my bullies play mind games, give me looks, call me names, etc. I'm just telling you that the key is to not care, keep moving forward.

Bullying can ruin someone else.One person can impact on someone else positive or negative.I want to try to make that impact positive. One smile, one compliment, one kind word can make someone's day.

We all have a choice on how to treat others. Choose being KIND.

I am a victim of bullying. I have been bullied since 5th grade I am now a senior. I want to help others and let them know they are not alone. I am actually going to be going to college to learn phycology and help teens get through that rough time. In 2010 I tried to commit suicide because it had become so bad, I don't want to see any teen go through what I went through.

I care because I watched people bullied others as I just stood and watched the suffer.I beleive that children/teens  should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.

Share how PACER’s NBPC has helped you

KakashiI, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, writes: “I have been bullied because my love for anime is ‘too extreme.’ People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for Japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgments of ‘normies.’”
