I Care Because

When I was 6 years old, everyone made fun of the way I looked. They made sure I knew how ugly and stupid I was every day of my life. At that age, I already wanted to kill myself. When I turned 10, I started cutting myself. And as the world turned colder, suicide was an option I was willing to take.

Luckily, I found people who made me feel important. I'm 15 now and I feel much better. Stronger. And although not everything has been the same, I now feel that it is my responsibility to listen to others who have gone through my experience too. I just want to say that you are not alone and I love you very much.

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 is simply wrong for others to think they are better than the defeneeless and innocent, i believe something should be done to end this cause that is affecting millions of kids/teens. Bullying in schools and Cyber Bullying is wrong.

I was bullied once before too, and I know how it felt. It really hurts my  feelings., emotionally. Those bullies said bad things about me. They made rumours about me. :( I'm really SAD cause I thought they were really my real friends but they turn out to be fake, fake "friends" I really prefer to have no friends to having fake ones. 
don't suffer in silence, speak UP for Yourselves.

Music is a powerful force, and this summer teens and young adults across the country have a unique opportunity to turn their personal experience into a musical rallying cry against bullying. PACER is partnering with Galderma Laboratories, L.P., the makers of Epiduo® Gel, for the “Band Together to Banish Bullying” campaign, which encourages individuals who have been affected by bullying, or who want to speak out against it, to share artwork, photos, videos, or brief stories about their bullying experiences. This inspirational content will be used for an original song that will serve as the bullying prevention anthem, to be written, produced and performed by renowned producer Clinton Sparks and hit recording artists The Mowgli’s and Kylie Morgan.

NEW! PACER’s We Will Generation: Students Leading the Bullying Prevention Movement

Posted: Monday, June 30, 2014

Nearly 60% of bullying situations end when a peer intervenes. This powerful statistic shows the important influence peers can have. Imagine the power of student-to-student engagement in which students are educated, inspired, and supported to take positive action to help their peers.

PACER’s We Will Generation is designed to educate, support, and empower students to create inclusive communities within their schools. Based on a model of peer-to-peer education, the We Will Generation activates older students to educate younger students about bullying and what they can do to prevent it. With everything from short activities to a multi-lesson curriculum, this program has something to help every student, teacher, group, and community get involved to prevent bullying.

This innovative, engaging program acknowledges the social power students already possess and encourages them to use it to help their peers. The most effective bullying prevention will come from students themselves – and PACER’s We Will Generation will ensure that students are educated, inspired, and supported to take action.

Cyberbullying is real — here’s help

Posted: Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Columnist Joe Nathan recently published the article, “Cyberbullying is real — here’s help.” Julie Hertzog, director of the PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center is quoted in the article with advice for parents.

She suggested that in thinking about cyberbullying, parents think about how they prepare youngsters to go to a mall or shopping center. First of all, have a conversation. Don’t just “send them off, whether it’s to the mall or to the cyber world found on a phone or computer.” Secondly, agree on some rules. For example, if there’s a problem, let the parent know. Don’t just keep problems to yourself. And third, “Have an awareness of what your child is doing in the cyber-world.” PACER has many helpful resources including a booklet, “Cyberbullying: What Parents Can Do,” sponsored by Century Link. The booklet is here.
