I Care Because

i care because being bullied is not fun, and i really want to end bullying, its sad how people went through for being bullied, i just wanna help them to end bullying.

John, 17, Waterbury, CT

I get bullied every single day of my life, verbally and physically, since I stepped foot into elementary school. 

Taylor, 13, Massachusetts

I care because I was bullied for 4 years and i dont want it to ever happen to anyone again. i understand the pain. Everyone should care!!

Sara, 15, Tennessee

last year in 6th grade a boy in my math class who I sat next to committed suicide. It was such a tragic event it was so upsetting and felt so unreal. I always knew bullying is such a horrible thing and I never want to see anyone be bullied. It is a wrong choice and no one should chose too. I have been bullied as well I and it's such a  bad feeling. I hope that one day there will be a solution to bullying.

Aimee, 13, IL

I totally care because i am constantly bullied and i feel that it is not right for people to be judged for who they are. Plus half the people that i know who are bullied, their bullies do not even know them personally. I feel like people believe that they can make fun of anyone or anything just because they can and it{s not right! It needs to stop right now, because people seen to commit suicide more and more because of bullying and over 160,000 people stay home from school each day because they are feared of being bullied and it{s outrageous!!!! Though most people don{t see it as bullying and harassment, it is. I just wish our world had better pride about themselves and others that way there is no need for bullying. 

Victoria, 14, Indiana

I was bulllied a lot when I was younger and I still have friends that are being bullied. Some of them don't even laugh or smile anymore because of the hurt they feel. It kills me that other people go through it as well and if there was a way to end bullying for good, I would go for it whole-heartedly. We have an anti-bullying Campaign at school,which i am in but people don't take us seriously and children are too afriad to come to us. I want to put an end to all this heartache.
