I Care Because

I've been through very horrible situations that changed me. I was jumped by 4th graders when I was just 8. I was alone, never to be friended by anyone besides teachers and my parents. Bullying got to me so much to the point of breaking, and I nearly choked a kid 2 years older than me to death because I lost my temper. I don't have that problem anymore, but I'm afraid it will happen to my brother. He's only 7, but they pick on my brother sometimes, and he gets himself into trouble by fighting the kids. I really want this to stop, everybody I know is being bullied just because of who they are, and I hate it. Bullying is dangerous. It caused a few people to commit suicide because of this problem.

I kind of bully a friend of mine sometimes but I regret it EVERYTIME because I know it makes he feel awful. I wanna stop but he's so annoying sometimes... I don't know what to do I can stop if he stops.

I've never been badly bullied, but I am/have been picked on. I was teased a little by a few people 2 years ago. Now this year, it's gotten worse. I don't say anything, but my friend gets it. He will tell them to stop, and others tell me to ignore it. But it's hard. This week was extremely bad. I got called alot of names, in the class, where everyone could hear. They stuck up for me though, and I care because if people don't have others that will stick up for them, it's really hard. When I was being picked on 2 years ago, nobody stood up for me, it can make people feel so alone. So, that's why I care.

Hey guys, i'm Molly iam Bullied maybe not very much but it still hurts, people call me fat and piggy it's not nice and the friends that i have support me i am lucky because it's not that bad but if we don't stand out against bullying it will get worse so join Pacer Center's Teens Against Bullying and put a stop to this

Molly, 11, Geneva, Switzerland

2 years ago, I was an ugly lookin  10 year old girl. everyone thought the other kids were cute. but actually, they were horrible. I can hardly remember it , but the thing I remember most was seeing my best friend laughing when they held me down to the floor and began beating me, that's why I care. IF ANYONE THINKS OF SUICIDE, IT'S NOT THE WAY OUT! YOU HAVE TO FACE IT! NOTHING WILL GET BETTER IF YOU LET THE BULLY WIN! ONE OF THE BEST THINGS TO DO TO A BULLY IS TO MAKE THEM FEEL SMALL...AND BACKCHAT TO THEM INSTEAD OF COWERING.
