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 care because i know how hard it is when someone bullies you. i never thought anyone could help. untill i told my friends. no one should ever be alone in those kind of situations...ever. we're all talented and srtong, but not all of us know that. my friends helped me be strong and stand up against the people who teased me and pushed me. now if someone says stuff just to hurt me, i show them how wrong they were about me and i help anyone i see in these situations. bullies only bully you if you let them. so don't let them. everyone can light the night sky. #GLowInTheDark:)

sandra, 15, california

I was diagnosed with partial deafness aged 5 and the kids in my school then used to pick on me because of it. I had to be taken from the local school and sent to a school further away to prevent this. At the time, it made me feel like I was worthless and that because of my disability I couldn't be as good as the other children. Since moving away from the local school, I've learned that this is not the case.
