I Care Because

no one deserves to be bullied! It's wrong and hard to deal with gossips and threats on a daily base,to be alone for no reason,to be hated for who you are,to be punched or forced to hurt you because you think it's the only way to stop it.TELL SOMEONE IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS BEEN OR IS BULLIED.Lets put a stop to it.Together.Because you're not alone.Stay strong. xoxo

people around the world should never have to endure this type of pain. I have been bullied before and it doesnt feel good. Then i was the bystander. Now I'm going to do my part and help stop it! STOP BULLYING NOW!!!

I know how it feels to be bullied. My friends get picked on and I try to make the bullies stop. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. Just the day before yesterday, this boy called me "Josie-Nosie." It's a mean nickname they call me at school. I hate it when people make fun of me. It makes me feel sad. I've almost been bullied my whole life. It's not funny. In the beggining of the school year, I felt worthless and down. Everyone picked on me and it didn't feel good. BULLIES IN THE WORLD, STOP BULLYING!! It's not funny. 
I try to tell bullies that bullying is not funny. I try not to bully others, I don't because I know how it feels. WE NEED TO MAKE AN END OF BULLYING!! :D <3

I have always felt the need to be different and students at my school don't  like that. Everyone blends in and molds together, but the people who ruin that are bullied. I was one of the people who ruined it. I would get so upset that I would cut myself and find any excuse to harm myself. I still don't blend in perfectly, but I've learned to embrace it because that's what life is all about. It's about being different. My heart and all my love goes out to Phoebe and her family and any other person who is bullied

I have had a friend that was bullied everyday at school from maybe 1st grade to 4-5th. She would get stones thrown after her, she would be threatened by knife,or beaten up or called names.
Me and some other friends of mine went to some teachers to talk about it,but they would just ignore it. Or if someone did care, they would just say "stay away from that person that do this. Just ignore it then he would stop," etc..  We got our parents involved and they did so much to help us with this problem. They would go to the principal and ask if he could arrange so this person who bullied her could go to another school. But he couldn't do it. The principal said after alot of discussions "Just wait to you start in 8th grade,then everything will be alright."  But to wait 3-4 years to stop the bullying,it's just ridiculous. Bullying should never be ignored! 
Now when I think of it,I get so mad over that nobody could make her feel good about herself,she would just be ignored by the teachers. 
Now she's doing fine,but bullying really have had an effect on her. Who could blame her? 
Thanks to Demi Lovato for doing something about this. I'm from norway,so sry for bad english. :p

I was the bullied last year and I want to stop it. I came home and cried myself to sleep. I have also bullied someone. I was about 6 at the time and my friend had dragged me into it because she didn't like the person. I regret it and even though we're friends now, it haunts me.

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.

Bullying is not supposed to happen. No one is supposed to be inferior to another by any means. No one knows what happens in your daily life, so why would they judge? I'm going to do an assembly at my school about bullying and hopefully be able to spread the news to other schools in the United States. Words hurt. The end.

Bullying ruined my life. I look I'm okay now, but I will never have my childhood back. At the age of 6, I declared to my classroom I wanted to kill myself. I now realize that wasn't a "normal" thing. No one should go through this. Everyone deserves kindness.

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.’”
