I Care Because

In the past and sometimes now, I have been bullied alot on the internet I was given alot of abuse. But now I have seen this, I want to make a difference not just to me, but to all the teenagers around the world to make this stop. I am just so glad that I can contribute to all of this :)!

Being bullied hurts. You feel alone and helpless, but remeber you are not alone and you are not helpless. I can't count the times and reasons I've been bullied. Sometimes it's gone to far, especially when someone is killed. RIP Pheobe and to all those who have died because they were bullied. You will always be loved and remebered.

My highschool years were destroyed by people I thought were my friends. I had been bullied all year to the point where I was becoming unhealthy. I isolated myself and became depressed. I know now that I should've gotten help. Now I can take a stand and make a decision to make myself better and inform other people.

I was bullied. Here, in Peru, is a reality too. Nobody talks to you, everyone mocks you, hits you, laughs at you. All finished when I transferred to another school. Now, I'm fine, but other people in my class are been bullied. And I wish I could help.

i dont like seeind others get picked on sometimes I want to help out but i am scared i will get bullied to. I love helpig little kids out becuase it helps them become a better person in the future. I dont want anymore bullies in my school so i am going to start preventing bullies from being rude to other students. If a little kid gets bullied he/she might move away because he/she is getting bullied and I want to prevent that.

I know how it feels being bullied. And I want it to be over and i'm tired of everyone bullying me. Making fun of me, throwing my homework on the floor and calling me a freak. I been bullied for three years and i cant  take it anymore. I'm losing my focus. Nobody sits around me, doesnt even talk to me, and they talk behind my back. I want to make a change about this. One day I will just forget about the bullying moments.

I care because I watched people bullied others as I just stood and watched the suffer.I beleive that children/teens  should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.

I hate bullying..It sucks...For all you bullies out there, have you ever thought how the person you bully/bullied (victom) feels when you bully them, how many times they have been bullied? They are different people. Everyone is different in their own way. They have just about as many rights as you do, even is they have cerebal palsy. 
Sometime bullying leads to sewaside. No one wants that.
Do you? I've been bullied before and i hated it. It makes people feel veeerrryy upset. I know I did.
DON'T BE A BULLY
STAND UP, SPEAK OUT!!!!!!!!!

People at my school called me fat and ugly. Although this was terrible, worse than that was the fact that my best friend did the same thing.  From this experience I learned that beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.  Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

My school does not have alot of bullying and it is punished very hard. I care because I never had to go through anything like that and it makes me sad when other kids have to go through it. I

There are so many little things that people can do that hurt. Sometimes you think you aren't hurting anyone, but you actually are.  People need to be careful about what they say and do, because you can get carried away.  There was a girl at my school who was jealous of a lot of people and so she would spread rumors about them and tell people about how d horrible they "really were".  I was one of those people.  I was so upset about the things that she was saying, but I didn't let it get to me.  Like my idol, Demi Lovato, said, STAY STRONG. I talked to my friends about it and they helped me get through this. I used to think that she only hated me but this year I found out that she does it to multiple people. Yesterday she did something HORRIBLE to someone, one of her best friends, if people found out, her reputation in school would drop so quickly... I think that eventually for doing something bad like bullying, you will pay for it.  Not everybody will bow down to the bullies, some of them will stand up to them. And when they do - they will stand up taller than any bully will ever stand.

Share how PACER’s NBPC has helped you

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.’”
