I Care Because

You shouldn't have to worry about getting hurt or teased at school or anywhere. We are told by administrators and teachers that school is a safe environment, but it sometimes isn't. I've been bullied constantly, which, for a long time, had an effect on my school work. 

Joy, 15, md

It's so terrible knowing that people have to deal with this. I was bullied and I got help but not everyone can be so lucky. I hope this yearly UNITY day brings to light how hard it is for people...

Taylor, 16, CA

I hate it when I experience someone picking on my friends. I've experienced everything happen. This happens every day. I'm sick of it. I keep on telling this person to stop, but they keep bullying my friend. 

Dylan, 12, Allenstown,NH

I care because i feel no one should under go bullying.  I beleive that if we all take a stand against bullying we can make a change. 

L, 12, California

I know the feel of being bullied or just being put down. people who bully often dont know what they do to people. they make people feel low, insecure, etc. and it discusts me. kids commit suicide because of bullying and it breaks my heart. everyone is beautiful, everyone is unique. thats what makes us...US. we werent meant to be a copy. everyone should embrace their own flaws along with everyone elses, be nice! treat people with respect! and most importantly, LOVE EACH OTHER💝

Brianna, 15, Arizona

From 1th To 5th Grade I Was Bullied By Class Mates & People I Once Considerd my "Friends".
I Switched Schools And Made New Friends..
But Even With A New Life, Bullying Still Affects Me Today. I Have Depression  From It And Sever Anxeity..

Think BEFORE You Say Something..
Words Hurt More Than Actions.

Sara, 14, ND

I care because NO ONE deserves to be put down by other people...my friend has been bullied so much and he thinks that people dont even want him in this world anymore. Now how cruel is that. I am sick of people treating other people like dirt. He is a wonderful person that i would not like to lose in my life. <3 

Lexei, 13, Missouri
