Ashley, 13, on

First grade through fourth grade I was bullied and everyday I came home crying my eyes out. My mom and the school didn't believe me, but one day my mom saw it happen. She tried to get the school involved but they wouldn't so she pulled me out of private school and put me in public school. I'm still bullied sometimes but it's not as bad as it was. I have a lot of friends now. No one believed me at first and it was horrible. I feel for everyone whose being or been bullied. Every time you see someone being bullied, Help. Even if you don't like the person, you need to stand up. Would you want to be bullied every day of your life and no one stand up or help you? Think about it.

Maggie, 16, Arkansas

My little sister is bullied at school because she is very small and underweight for her age. She doesn't have a disorder or anything, but she has trouble paying attention in class, so she has to take these pills that make her not want to eat. She's going to be 13 this month and she is only 4'9" and about 60 lbs. She only has one or two friends, and she often comes home with scrapes and bruises on her knees from being pushed down in the hallways. She never seems to see who is doing these things to her, so she just keeps quiet. It's up to the school to crack down on this issue so in instances like these, bullying victims can be brought to justice.
