I Care Because

I came close to suicide three times. But I survived. I was bullied for four years, mentally. I was very emotionally unstable. Bad self-esteem, I couldn't even hold eye contact, I burned inside.
But I survived.
And if I did,
anyone can.

Jackie, 17, California

All throughout highschool I was bullied for different reasons. It affected my confidence and made me hate who I was. I ended up doing cyber school for my senior year because the bullying was too much, I was afraid to go back. My mom has helped me a lot through this and I just take life day by day now, trying to stay positive about the person I am.

I care because ive been bullied a few times it isnt as bad as some other peoples situations, but it isnt good.
I think no one should be bullied, people dont need to take their own life because of something that you said.
I mean was it really worth it? 
How would you like it. Your right you wouldnt so i mean they dont either so come on now and do what is right actually take a stand. it hurts. I wanna challenge you guys. Go to church school home just anywhere and give someone a nice comment and see how nice of a compiment you will get back.
Then you will see how it feels to be nice.
Come one guys you can do it no matter what people say whatever you think you can do you can do....
Dont judge someone till you walk in thier shoes....
                      Thanks love Jessie:) Pain is temporary when quitting is forever!!!! Have a nice day!!!!!

Sometimes I find my friend being bullied because of what she likes or dislikes. I can see how much it hurts her and it isn't ok. I try to stand up to the bullies and now we have a non-bullying club that some kids in our neighborhood go to. I also know what it feels like to go through it, and it isn't anything that anyone ever appreciates.

It is amazing what can happen when one person stands up for another. BULLYING STOPS more than half of the time ( 57% ) when peers intervene on behalf of the bullied student! It is for this profound reason, we are making a difference and saving lives by teaching youth how to take action and not be bystanders.

Free quality books with positive messages, promoting self-esteem and character building will be provided. The books feature forwards from celebrities who are top in their fields: Ten-Time Grammy Award Winner Bobby McFerrin, Chart-Topping Hip-Hop Artist Big Sean and NFL's #1 Kicker Justin Tucker.

WPGC 95.5 FM (CBS Radio) will broadcast live from the event. The day will be packed with inspirational music, highly motivational and fun educational activities that participants can bring back to their schools and communities to implement. Students will have opportunities to shine by demonstrating and sharing their superpowers both as a community and individually.
