I Care Because

I care because bullying is a serious issue that NEEDS to be stopped.

Maria Nieves, 16, Connecticut

Nobody deserves to be treated like that.
Also if he/she is fat or too skinny.
Also if he/she dresses different.
Also if he/she doesn't act normal.
Also if he/she is too little or too tall.
Everybody is perfect in there own special way. 

Elianne, 12, The Netherlands

I don't want to be silent anymore, I want to stand up and make a change! I have a voice and I want to use it for something that will change the world. If you're ever felling fown or if you ever feel like you're worthles, take a look up in the sky and breathe. I care for you, even if we don't know eachother, I care! Always remeber that I love and care for you

My name is Cheyna, i have been bullied ever since 2nd grade. People always called me fat for over 5 years, then i stopped eating..... And i lost over 73 pounds.... Now im finally at a weight people can stand talking to me, and will actually be my friend. I feel like sometimes i can always go back to not eating because people still pick on my weight. But I just want to feel good about my self, and people still today, my freshman year; they still pick on me, and it hard to feel confertable with myself...

Your Story is Powerful

Posted: Tuesday, December 16, 2014

This past October, Michael and Marisa, two inspirational spokespersons for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, hosted the “Your Story is Powerful” event to give teens across the country an opportunity to share their personal experiences with bullying. We received many entries and thank everyone who participated! Josh, who is 14 years old, was randomly selected to receive the MacBook Air. Here is Josh’ story about bullying:

It all happened one day at recess in 3rd grade. I was on the swings pumping my legs back and forth in a rhythmic pattern, when suddenly the rhythmic pattern came to a halt and my life was never the same. Two girls, who appeared to be in 2nd grade, came up to the swings and started calling me ‘handicapped.’ Then they proceeded to tease me and sing in a tuneful, but tasteless song; ‘handicap, handicap, handicap.’ I knew that I shouldn’t let this incident go unnoticed, because, after all, they were bullying me. My friend, who was sitting next to me at the time, told me to a) ignore them and b) tell a supervisor. So we went to seek the assistance of a supervisor and told her what happened. She then came with us to the scene of the incident and punished the two girls by sending them inside.

For those of you who think that I was being a tattletale, I wasn’t. From that point on, I knew that I would be a strong advocate for people with disabilities. Now I am involved in my community by spreading the word around to end the “R-word” even if it is just fellow classmates I am spreading the word to. My hope is that my friends will tell their friends and eventually start a chain reaction, showing that one person can make a difference in their community. This is also an example of actions speak louder than words, because even though words can hurt, we as humans can overcome them and take a stand. This incident has helped to shape the person that I am today, and my message toward my other friends and peers to be more inclusive and advocate for what they believe and value.

Again, thank you to Michael and Marisa for hosting this event and for their continued support of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. With events like “Your Story is Powerful,” students can continue to raise awareness about the importance of bullying prevention.
