Teen pop star Rebecca Black, who rose to prominence in 2011 when the music video of her song “Friday” became the most viewed video of the year on YouTube, is speaking out about bullying prevention on behalf of PACER. “Bullying is something that affects so many and it can happen to anyone,” she says. “I know what it's like to have people make fun of you, and I know how much it can hurt. I just don't want other kids to have to go through that.”

Bullying makes kids feel depressed. Many kids feel bad about themselves because of bullies. I am sometimes bullied ,but I always try to ignore the bullies comments.
Karolina, 12, IL
I have been bullied in the past by many people who underminded me and said that i would never acheive anything. However the bullying i received has not ended my dreams and the bullying only got one thing from me and that was not to give up but try even harder so i could prove them wrong.
I gained my confidence by being involved in a charity called Roots and Shoots. The Roots and Shoots Programme was created by Dr Jane Goodall to help the youth of today understand how to help the enviroment and the wildlife as well as ideas on how to help your local community. I beleive that bullying as a whole should be stopped. So be inspired and get involved.
Lets all put a stop to bullying.

bullying doesnt affect ONE person. it has a domino effect. everytime someone is bullied, someone else has to suffer. i myself was bullied all through elementary school and middle school. i was teased because of my height, physical appearance and the fact that i was capable but "slower than a turtle" when learning. i never really had friends i could trust and i faked happiness to my family. pretty soon, i got used to the scars of being bullied. but I HATE the feeling of being so helpless; its unbearable. in high schoo, i met this girl two years older than me. she was a great friend adn so happy all the time. no one knew what was really going on. then, she missed school. first, 3 days. then 5. then 10. then two weeks. i never had her number or address so i just sat and worried. she texted me once and i found out that they followed her. they trashed her HOUSE and battered her. they beat her until she was lifeless. it started a while ago but she never showed her pain. she was strong. but it got so bad she had to cut all connections and move CITIES away ..and i never saw her again. being a victim of verbal abuse and witnessing bullying at its peak made me realize, we have to STOP BULLYING BEFORE IT STOPS US.
