I Care Because

I was bullied since I was 7 years old. Now I'm 17 and I still have problems with bullying. Nobody understands me and I feel so lonely and desperate. 
In school I stay alone, they laugh at me all the time about everything.
At nights when my family are sleeping I dont sleep, I cry and I cut myself.
This is the reason that I hate bullying because words can hurt you.

I was bullied when i was little and to this day still suffer from the effects. I have self harmed and been anerexic since i was 13. People always say that sticks and stones may break your bones but names can never hurt you. It is so untrue... names and things people say hurt way more than hits. Trust me i've dealt with both. Bullying is in no way cool and i hope with ever fiber in my body that if enough people stand up that it can be stopped once and for all. BULLYING HURTS!

I think its terrible and nobody should bully anybody else. People only bully because they are jelous of you, or are having trouble at home. I only know this because I was bullied once upon a time. So, even if your a bully and are having trouble at home, or didnt get the newest blackberry for Christmas or your Birthday, and are jelous of someone else, STOP BULLYING! You don't know how much one little thing can hurt someone, whether it be name-calling, physical hitting, or cyber, just stop, or you could be hurting yourself, as well as the person your bullying. No one should ever bully, because it is a bad thing. If you bully people younger than you, then your just cruel, and cyberbullying, is the worst kind, you can act braver than you are over the internet, and the things you say to people over the internet, are things that you would NEVER say to that person's face. So, basically, even if you act like the Queen of England, you should not bully! Whatever surcumstances it means, DON'T BULLY!!!!!!!!!!! Bullying is bad!


No one has the right to bully you, physically, verbally, or through the internet!! STOP THE BULLIES!!!!!!!

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.

im against bullying because i always have been bullied. i didn't really understand at first that thats what was happening. i mean on tv everyone poortrays bullying as physical abuse and thats not always the case. i was verbally abused for two years before i really understood it. i hated myself. and i sortof still do. when i was younger i had this best friend. she was sooo sweet and always hungout with me. but one day she came over talking about her friends that were gonna jump me because im ugly or something. i started crying because she said she wasnt going to help and that they were right. after that i was beat up alot and even after i moved away it still happened. my family is going through a rough spot becuase i was in trouble for truancy. i was too scared to leave my house. i hate myself because i let it get to me. im not the kind of person who lets that stuff happen but i did. and even worse i stopped doing what made me happy. i love to be on stage and sing and dance. but i was too scared. 
im against bullying and im taking a stand. noone should go through what i have and i want to help make sure noone does!

I think one of the worst types of bullying is when it comes from your friends. When they leave you out of things, or comment on something that you are doing, or your appearence in a negative way. they are supposed to be the people that you go to to have fun, when the yare the ones that are hurting you the most, and msot of the time they dont even notice.

my little sister got bullied. She is six years old, I have been teased about my religon. My little sister was kicked, hit, threatened, restrained, forced to eat non-edible things (like rocks, dirt, bugs, dirty popsycles) and told us nothing. We finally relized why she kept telling us she didnt was to go over their when our mom said to walk her over. I am making sure she dosent even get to look at that girl again

My little sister has a learning disability she is bullied on a daily basis. I hurt for her everyday because children with special needs struggle with everyday life and school should be an escape for them. Instead these children are made to feel like crap everyday just because they are a little different than eveyone else, but at the end of the day no matter what we are ALL human beings. Since she has became a high school student I take this bullying issue very seriously and sadly the public schools in Chicago don't. Hopefully some time soon bullying will be something very serious all around the world.

As an ongoing bullying victim no one should have to suffer like I do.  I have a hearing problem and people hate me for it. But bullying victims out there like me you are not alone and justice will come for you one day.

bullying is HORRIBLE and we all need to take a stand and stop it.

I see people get bullied all of the time. I try to make it stop, but I don't want to get "physically involved" in it. Make a stop towards bullying. And if you are one of those people who are being bullied, just talk to someone about it! Make a difference! Tell someone. They can help you make a change.

I lost one of my friends to bullying. They don't think that it hurts. Well it does and it changes a person's life forever. Like mine did. Put an end to bullying. 

Shelby, 16, Appletn

I went through a minor depression myself, that is why I stand up for what is right at my school. My friend is going through tough times himself. He has no Mother, Farther or siblings. Everyday I see him, trade greetings, be friends. 

I always help someone in need. I help, I care, I befriend.

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.’”
