I Care Because

this needs to stop!STAND UP FOR YOU AND OTHERS!


I have been bullied my whole life. Why? Because I can sing with vibrato. Not many people can get this skill at a young age. they get it when they are older. I got it when I was 7. I got made fun of everyday. The etachers even told me to "sing like a normal kid". I was crushed. And then people would judge me on m singing. Some people thought I was an arrogant snob. there is also a bully who sits next to me on the bus. So why don'y I get a new seat? There are no other seats. He's mean to my friend because she's Jewish, and about everyone I know. I've gone to the counciller. So has  my friend. She also went to our teachers. But he still bullies. I hope bullying will end because wrll What good does it do. It is ot fair to treat kids like that just because they aree different than you.

I was bullied in elementary and it made my life very different than how it could have been but I`m changing how I feel about myself and forgetting how they made me feel. 

My baby sister is in jr high and she is bullied and she has done things because of it that hurt her. I can`t stand to see her hurt like that.

I have been a constant bullying victim due to my views on gays. My older brother is gay and I proudly sport my rainbow bracelets and have my anti discrimination stickers. I hope to one day shed my title as a victim and become a leader against bullying so please if you see bullying dont just let it happen do something!

I know that people have taken there lives away, self-harmed themselves, and have lived there life worried about going to school because they are being bullied. NO ONE should feel this way. Bullying is never okay. IT HAS TO STOP.

I care because I lost my best friend. I care because when I walk down the hallway, people give me weird stares. I care because I know how it feels. I care, because I wanna make the voices that can no longer speak, heard.

I have been bullied alot lately. I finally made it public that I am engaged to a female and everybody looked at me like I was a plague. I got called names. And it hurt. I dont want anybody else to go through this but I know they will. THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!

I currently not bullied in school, but I certainly see others being bullied. The kids at my school bully a special ed kid. He just wants friends, but the kids tease him while the kid doesn't know. The've trash canned him and push him around. I don't understand why they do this but I know they know its wrong. I've told them to not back off but they don't listen. Although I don't know either kids, it really urks me that they do this, and when I think about it I remember that there are kids being bullied for trying to be friends. I hope the bullies know that one day Karma will come and hit them 10x harder. TO ALL THOSE BEING BULLIED: KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND DONT LET THOSE FOOLS GET TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU ARE 10X BETTER AND SUICIDE IS NEVER THE ANSWER.

There is no need to bully someone, so why do it? Does anyone really think that bullying helps,well if you do think again bullying hurts and does not help.If someone is being bullied help them or get a adult. People all around the world hurt or kill themselfs because of this thing bullying
Stand up for yourself and others. Treat others the way you want to be treated and you would not want to be bullied so do not bully others. Bullying can not do any good but it can cause harm. Please speak up and remember be a buddy not a bully.Bullying needs to end sometime, so why not try to make it end now!!???

I care about ending the World Issue "Bullying" because, I have seen it happen multiple times, and it can be very emotional to watch and not be able to do anything about it... I would like to be able to help others cope with Bullying! <3!

every person is special and different and good at something.  Let others know if you are being bullied.  A parent.  A teacher.  A friend.  Someone at  church or mosque or temple.  We all deserve to be treated with respect.

I hate bullying. Some kids think being bullied is a sighn to kill themselves !!! its horrible 
Think twice before you sent a mean text or email.

I was bullied and it caused me to bully but then realize what I did was wrong and that I started losing my friends. This caused me to change and now I support all the people who suffers from bulling.. 
I recently had a friend's friends who shot himself 4x because he couldn't take it anymore. He was called so many names at school. One's life shouldn't be taken away from people who looks in the outside of the person.

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.’”
