I Care Because

it hurts people

Cornholio, 6, Wyoming

I can relate. I've moved around a lot in my life, and I find people are very, shall we say unaccepting, towards stranger. I've had friends hurt me, strangers shove me, and people just randomly shove my stuff on the ground. 

Always remember that just because no one fully understands exactly what you've gone through, doesn't mean they can't help or just be there for you. Just because bullying happens everywhere, doesn't make it right. Find someone who will help you get out of the sadness-pit you fall into every time you think of the hurt. Cause the least they could do, is just sit in there with you.

Bullying is wrong. Period.

Nick, 14, TX

i have been bullied before from being told to kill myself, stabbed in the hallway at school,pushed into lockers, and hate pages about me on social media. It really bugs me that my school says that they can't do anything about this. So basically they are saying that from people causing me some medical issues and depression they won't do anything about it. So all this anger and sadness about all of this has made me want to do anything to prevent bullying from happening to others. Lets all pitch in together to stop bullying!

There was an unpopular girl at my school n she was bullied all the time, so one day i stood up for her and done something about i gave her a friend. You dont have to use violence or even tell someone about it, i just gave her a friend and found out that she is a really nice girl.

I know what it's like to be bullied, I understand how hard it can be some days, and I'm able to relate to those who have had it worse than me. My school isn't the best school, the teachers consider it to be a good atmosphere for kids like me, but it's not. Kids pick on the other kids constantly, people get pushed into lockers, kids get tripped in the halls, and you can hear laughter directed at someone wherever you go, all while the teachers are standing only a few feet away. So even though my school isn't the greatest it only makes me more motivated to make a difference, I care because bullying is one thing I just can't tolerate.

I am bulled myself, and no one knows. no one notices. 
it is mostly emotoinal and mental, but that is worse that physical. with the emotoinal pain. every day, i dread going to school cause i starts all over again. the pain is awful, and no one notices. the worst part is that my parents abuse me as well.  i am all alone,

It's jus t not safe. I really don't like bullying. The words "Sticks and Stones might break my bones but names will never hurt me" is not true. Bullying counts the same BOTH mentally AND physically. So let's stop it together!

errrr. i knew an awesome girl... she was bullied because of horrible rumores. she saw only one wy out,,, I am against bullying

sara, 15, ca

I care because...  I was bullied for four years. Being bullied leaves scars that no one can repair. Being bullied leaves you vulnerable to the harsh things in this world that can change a person and not always for the better.  My graduation paper/project this year is on bullying and teen depression.  Bulling is serious and anyone who takes it as a joking matter needs to look into the lives of those affected by it.  Stand Up.  Speak out.  The End Of Bullying Begins With Me.

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.’”
