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 never been bullied, but i want to help stoping with this!  Actually, i saw one time a little boy been bullying with 2 older guys. I didnt do anything, because i was very scared by the situation...

Soraia, 14, CA

Just two days ago as I was driving, a woman in the car beside me yelled, "FREAK!" as I drove by. This person had no right to call me any name. I've never seen her before in my life, and I probably will never see her again. Not only does bullying from strangers hurt, but it hurts even more when people you thought were your friends bully you to your face, and even behind your back. Words and actions hurt. Even as an adult I am victimized by the way that I dress, my piercings, and my tattoos. An outward appearance does not show the way you are inside. I am a firm believer in bullying prevention and people seeking help because of bullying. Don't ever give up. You're better and stronger than the people bullying you. I love every single one of you.

Jose, 20, California,Los Angeles

Ever scince  I  was  in  pre-school  I   was  bullied.  One  day  someone  took a plastic knife  t o school  and  told me they  were going to  kill  me. She  ended up cutting  my  t shirt.  I found ways  to cope  like  listning to  music.

Casey, 13, LA

Someone has to.

Morgan, 16, OH

No one should be bullied. We are all one human race and we should do anything within our power to make this world a nice place to live becuase we only live once. No one should feel dread or be scared of another human being...

No one deserves to be bullied, we are meant to be loved and adored.
