I Care Because

I belive that everyone has a right to enjoy life, and not be bothered about being bullied. Some time you think your not bullyng people, but in reality you are and it hurts people, but some people just cannot come to realize it. Bullyng people leads the targets to doing crazy things, and if they do the bully will or should regret it awfully. Nobody should have to deal with bulying, EVER!

I was bullied through school, it was the worst as a senior in high school. My brother (in middle school) was also going through it. No matter who we went to, no one helped us. The school did nothing because they had no proof. My brother and I were alone and picked on every day. I stand against bullying for those who are like us.

Kendra, 19, South Dakota

I have younger brothers and sisters and I want them to be happy when they go to school and confident about themselves. I have not personally not been too harshly bullied. When I was, I was strong enough to stand up for myself, though it did really hurt on the inside. My brother has a social issue and he has a hard time communicating with people. He has been bullied and it has hurt me so much to know that. I want people to know the effects of bullying and how it can really hurt someone. 

Marie, 14, America

I was never a victim of bullying, but I've seen it happened. It hurts my heart to know that people get picked on for no reason because of the way they look, how they talk, what they wear, etc. If I ever see anyone get picked on, I always be the right person and tell the other person, No that not cool, or nice, and to even leave the person getting pick on alone. People have feelings and no one likes getting left alone. You really got to put yourself in the victim's shoes. Wouldl you like to get treated like that? How would you feel? But overall I'm just totally against bullying & I'm 100% all for the prevention center thing. It truely does make a difference in some peoples lives.

Tamara, 18, Georgia

i have a younger sister  that  is the most loveable person you could ever meet.. but you know you always have that group of people that makes you not want to go to school either because your close isn't the latest fashion  or your just not "COOL"  she calls me everyday crying because she get's bullied at school... so i just hope and pray that we can come together as a team and abolish bullying bc someone can really get hurt
