I care because it hurts me when I see people being bullied.  I want to help, but I'm to scared.  I get sad and scared when I see it.  When, I see bullying it reminds me of the Karate Kid.  Where he can't fight back because he is to scared.

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.

When  will it be enough for people to realize, that hurting people isnt the answer. Jealous, Anger, Depression, Family Affairs and much much more drive people to bully. But why! It happens in the hallways in the bathroom locker rooms facebook face to face gossiping. And it brings me to tears to hear about so many percious lives being lost because people are careless about their actions. im constanly bullied through school and yeah the teachers talk about it but they never do anything about it!!

I see bullying at my school a lot. We have this thing called Advisory every friday that everyone is riquired to go to but everyone just doesn't get it. It doesn't have to be phisical... its mostly emotional. Like for me.... other girls would always gossip behind my back and never treat me like a true friend. But now I feel as if everyone at my school thinks its only in movies and doesn't happen in real life. IT DOES.

Bullying happens all the time, and it gotta stop! We gotta do something!

My self-esteem was crushed my classmates and even teachers because of how I look and the way I act. They made fun of me pointed out every flaw there was in me and practically made me a loner. Everyday at school was torture. Everyone in class made fun of me, toyed with my emotions, laughed at my face, and tell me that they'd rather die than be with me. That was 3 years ago. Now that I'm in college, I've realized the kind of torment they inflicted on me and I don't want that to happen to others. Together we are better than them.

I care because it's not fair to be treated nasty just because the other person does'nt like you. I've been since elementary school just because of a boy that liked me. It's been going on for four years and im really sick and tired of it. A few weeks ago I was eating lunch and three girls came up to me and one of them grabed my lasagna and dumped it on my hair! The worst thing was that the whole cafetria watched and the teachers didnt even do anything at all. But with the support of my friends and family I was able to stand up for myself. Im really glad that there is a website like this to show kids and teenagers that they are not alone. And a big thanks to Demi for standing up for us and not ignoring us. I love you! thanks.

i care because i was never the queen of my class nor i wanna be,but when you're not a part or the elit,you are thought to be useless,a loser,a nobody....and when you're not one of these girls who are thought to be beautyfull and cool,then you have to put up with them,live your school life being told how much you're not like them and that you're ugly,or not smart enough for them,or even not cool enough to breath their air...well,actually this hasn't happened to me,but to my best friend.thats why i care,because these girls destroy the confidence of brilliant kids and because they're jealous,they just make them believe what they say so that they wont be a threat to their glow!!!well,these kids that are being verbally bullied are bright and beautyful and way better that these  prom queens,someone has just to point that out to them so that they wont be tollerable anymore!!

I care because bullying is REAL and the pain that comes along with it is REAL.  You would want someone to help/stand up if it were you.  Right?
    Stop bullying and stop the violence/pain!

Chantal, 18, CA

bullying affects peoples lives around the world and no one should feel less about themselves or insecure about themselves. everyone is beautiful and perfect in their own way.

Sara, 17, NY

Bullying is the worst thing that happens in school. People say that words dont hurt people, but thats not true, words can hurt more than pushing someone. please stop bullying. think about other peoples life. your ruining their lives!

Rabbea, 10, Qatar

I was the bullied last year and I want to stop it. I came home and cried myself to sleep. I have also bullied someone. I was about 6 at the time and my friend had dragged me into it because she didn't like the person. I regret it and even though we're friends now, it haunts me.

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.’”
