I Care Because

'' It seems like so many people don't take bullying seriously. When will they finally understand the consequences of bullying someone? I was bullied a lot in elementary school for my height, and even religion! Sometimes I would lock myself in my room and just cry myself to sleep, it was that bad. Lesson to be learned: Bullying is NOT a joke, and we all need to work as a team to fix this issue. So that's my story, everyone!

Bullying is not supposed to happen. No one is supposed to be inferior to another by any means. No one knows what happens in your daily life, so why would they judge? I'm going to do an assembly at my school about bullying and hopefully be able to spread the news to other schools in the United States. Words hurt. The end.

I care because, I've seen students being bullied. The students balling up inside and having no one to turn to, its a terrible thing. When I were to see someone being bullied I'd help the one becoming bullied. It's not right, nobody deserves to become bullied. If we don't help the ones who are being bullied then were just as bad as the one who is doing the bullying. STOP BULLYING!

I was emotionally bullied by some girl in sixth grade. She didn't let one of my best friends hang out with me, talk to me, even look at me. The worst part was that she didn't even get punished for it. We need this to shop.

I am currently being bullied right now. A girl in my 5th period has a locker next to me and keeps saying mean words to me. I decided to kill the hatred with kindness. I started saying nice things to her and soon she backed off. Hope this helped! Love you, guys. 

Natasha, 12, CA

I have NEVER been bullyed. But a couple days ago this kid in my class beat  up a 5th grader( by the way we are forth graders) on the bus FOR NO REASON!!!!  Then he made up a whole diffrent story to tell that the boy started calling him names! Then my best friend was right there watching and she said it was a whole diffrent story. I don't ever want to be bullyed and not anyone else go through it ethier. So I want to help to prevent bullying from happening.
