Video: This I Believe

Five high school students read an adaptation of an essay written by a 14-year-old, who shares what it is like to experience bullying and to be misunderstood as he tries to figure life out. We are grateful to this young author, who asked to remain anonymous, for courageously providing a glimpse into his world and for reminding each of us to be more kind to each other.

I Care Because

I hate bullying  because it hurts other kids feelings

Kimira, 13, 285 bronx new york

Hey well right me and my best mate were walking in the playground when my best mate needed to get something from her bag, so we went to get it but then a group of boys started teasing and pushing us around we tried to get away but one pushed me so hard i fell to the ground i stared crying then i got called nasty names a teacher came by and fixed it all but if she wasn't there then we may have got really hurt

I care because i know what it is like to be torn apart or scared. But you have to know that, that person is just one and as long as you dont let it get to you, you can live a long happy life. You just need to know that that persons opinion doesnt matter. I have also seen kids that take out all of the hurt and anger on others, but dont stoop down to their level. Create your own level above eveyone else.

Kylie, 12, Oregon

Im a victim of bullying too.Its no fun and no joke.Getting teased, getting your stuff taken, and other people ganging up on you just to hurt you hurts, deeply. You feel like you cant do anything you look down on yourself.You feel alone and scared. But dont look down on yourself look up. Things will start to get better, yes it hurts to be made fun of and yes it hurts to be ignored or tortured, but you only have to deal with them through school. Once your outta school the bullying will be over and you can enjoy your life! And if the bullying gets beyond control tell an adult or smoeone and get help. Hope this helps someone! Love you all!!!

bullying is hurtful, it hurts our self-esteem and our sense of belonging to a community or group. It is cruel, unproductive for all involved and maddening. It's been going on forever but it has to change as women's right to vote became a reality, as children's right did too, or as animal cruelty became a punishable crime. Living in a society where bullying is prohibited could change things from its core. Maybe one day in less than 100 years who knows, we will be able to live a life in which compassion is the most valuable human quality.
