I Care Because

I know what it is like to be bullied. I am being bullied right now. No one should be hurt the way they are now. There is nothing as bad as being bullied. Never give up hope.

bullying made me ashamed of who i am and my parents people made fun of my parents divorse and what my father did and i am now not ahamed of it because i decided to many people in my school used to bully me about it why should i put my self down.

I've been bullied before and it does hurt. My friend thinks she's ugly when she's one of the most beautiful people in the world. Adults have made this stereotype that just because kids are young, they are happy. But, the truth is, kids can feel like they don't belong anywhere. Teachers and principals think that school is a safe place for everyone when it isn't. If you are being bullied, wear that beautiful smile of yours and let everyone know that you're stronger than everyone thinks. You're beautiful and loved by someone. Stay strong and DON'T give up.

I used to be bullied alot for being myself. I want others at my school to know that they're not alone in this battle against bullies. Everyone has someone who cares for them, no matter who you are. You matter; you'll make it; you'll get through this, just stay strong.

There are so many little things that people can do that hurt. Sometimes you think you aren't hurting anyone, but you actually are.  People need to be careful about what they say and do, because you can get carried away.  There was a girl at my school who was jealous of a lot of people and so she would spread rumors about them and tell people about how d horrible they "really were".  I was one of those people.  I was so upset about the things that she was saying, but I didn't let it get to me.  Like my idol, Demi Lovato, said, STAY STRONG. I talked to my friends about it and they helped me get through this. I used to think that she only hated me but this year I found out that she does it to multiple people. Yesterday she did something HORRIBLE to someone, one of her best friends, if people found out, her reputation in school would drop so quickly... I think that eventually for doing something bad like bullying, you will pay for it.  Not everybody will bow down to the bullies, some of them will stand up to them. And when they do - they will stand up taller than any bully will ever stand.

In high school, it is so vicious; jungle-like at times. Everyone needs someone to talk to when they are being bullied.

I care because I lived with bullying 3 years. Those 3 years was very painful and hard for me, everybody have right to live like a normal person. I hate bullies, all my class and the other kids in school were bullying me, so it was very difficult time for me. I told my mum that, my stomach ache, my head ache. I had so many excuses not to go to school. Teachers didn't do anything. I still don't know the reason why they did it. So my message is all of whom have been bullied or who are bullied now, we are one team, we support those who have to live through it right now and everyday.  
GOOD LUCK !

I know someone who took their life because of cyber-bullying. Someone anonymous kept telling him to kill himself, that no one would care; it got so intense that later that day, he went my the train tracks.. and let the train take his life. In that same week, another kid younger then him felt like no one cared about him and felt like his life was going nowhere, so he took his life. No one should feel alone. I wish I would have known both of them so I can show them that someone cares, I care. No one deserves to be bullied. NO ONE.

Every name that a kid has been called has lead them more and more into depression.

Alyssa, 13, Wisconsin

My son will start kindergarten next year, and I do not want him or any child to be subjected to the same kind of misery I went through as a target of bullying.  Changing the bully-or-be-bullied mentality will make our schools safer, our children happier, and us parents less worried.

It gets a little weird when I get to school every morning because I remember the time I got bullied in class because I mixed up something. And then Cooper yelled out "hey guys! Jack mixed up his letters!" Everyone laughed except for Megan who stood up for me. So she made me feel better. 

Jack , 10, Hubert, North Carolina

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.’”
