I Care Because

No one deserves to be treated like dirt. No kid should be left out of a activity or afraid to go somewhere because they are bullied.  Even if the bullies have stopped and gone away the mark they make never goes away. 
We remember.

Ive beeen bullied ALOT!  Growing up alot of kids have always been mean to me and i dont know why. Many times i have cried myself to sleep or didnt attend school because it had gotten so bad. One time my life was even at stake. I dont want anyone to go through what i went through. We need to try the best we can to END BULLYING!((: loovvee yall and be strong!!

I care because no one should be treated unfairly, no one should be picked on and no one should have to feel alone. I was bullied from 1st to 6th grade; now I'm in the 12th and it took me almost six years to realize that all of the bullying still effects me. I'm doing my senior project on bullying and I feel like there will be a change soon. Bullying should be taken very seriously because it is very real.

I WAS BULLIED IN FIRST AND SECOND GRADE. FOR STUPID LITTLE REASONS, LIKE NOT BEING ABLE TO PORNOUSE THE WORDS WONDER WOMAN. AFTER THAT, I BECAME A BULLY. THE TRUTH IS, BULLIES MAKE BULLIES. IN THIRD GRADE, I STARTED SWEARING AT THE KIDS WHO MADE FUN OF ME WHICH ONLY MADE IT WORSE. IN FOURTH GRADE I MADE FUN OF THIS KID WITH MY "FRIENDS" BECAUSE OF STUPID REASONS SO SMALL, I DONT EVEN REMEMBER. AND IN FIFTH GRADE, I FINALLY BROKE DOWN ONE NIGHT AND TOLD MY MOM WHAT HAPPEND AND THAT I SWORE AND ALL THAT. I WASNT A BULLY ANYMORE IN FIFTH GRADE. BUT IN SIXTH GRADE, ME AND MY FRIENDS BULLIED THIS ONE GIRL BECAUSE SHE ALWAYS ANNOYED US. WHEN I LOOK BACK AT IT, SHE WAS ONLY TRYING TO MAKE FRIENDS. MY ONE FRIEND TOLD ME SHE HEARD THAT THE GIRL CRIED EVERYDAY BECAUSE SHE DIDNT HAVE ANY FRIENDS, WHICH SHE HEARD FROM HER PARENTS TALKING TO THE GIRLS PARENTS. SO, I TOLD MYSELF I WILL NOT BULLY ANYMORE. BUT THE TRUTH IS- BULLIES MAKE NEW BULLIES. AND ONCE YOUR A BULLY, YOU CAN NEVER GET THAT NAME TAKEN AWAY. SOME PEOPLE MAKE IT A LIFES CHOICE TO BULLY. BUT NOW IN 7TH GRADE, I WONT. I WILL DEFEND MYSELF, BUT I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE A BULLY- I PROMISE.

I'm getting targetted, too. However, even the small things can set me to steam because I have been bullied since grade school. If you've been bullied since then, do NOT trust them. They aren't your friends or anything. However, don't start the fights. If you do it YOU'RE being the bully

i dont enjoy walking down my hallway & seeing people being bullied, it can lead to some very, very dangerous things, such as.., deppresion, fighting, and even sometimes if it gets too out of control, or if worse comes to worse, suicide.  && i think that no-one should have to be afraid to go to school only because they are getting bullied...EVERYDAY.! just recently me and a group of my friends started a group at our school, called "Teen 2 Teen" where anyone can come & talk to any of us and tell us anything and everything, about them being bullied..and we do our best to help them and to put a stop to it.!!

People shouldn't be bullied. I just dont get it. Whats the point? Do people think there cool when they bully others? It just doesn't make any sence. This should stop. Now!

Tez, 11, NV

i see people at my school get bullied every day. Just recently a boy at a high school brought a gun to school and killed two people. This boy was the target to bullying every day. Bullying hurts people more than you think. So stop bullying. Bullying people ruins lives. It hurts them, and the people who care about them.

Here in Germany many teens and children are so concious of themselves and criticise others to make themselves feel great. In fifth through seventh grade I was bullied for my looks and personality. It was so hard to get through it, but I knew I would make it through if I believed in myself. I  have become so strong. I can just encourage everyone to be the strongest and most positiv you, you can be!

I am in the second semester of 6th grade. Im not bullied now, but i was bullied when i was around six years old.  I am friend with a bully. She really knows how to hurt a person, both physically and emotionally. I've tried to deal with her before, but she turned everybody against me. Every since then, people just ignore what goes on. She's even got the teacher fooled.
I went onto youtube and watched videos of demi lovato talking about bullying.  Although  she has great advice, and she's my idol, im too scared to do anything about this bully. I don't like it when anyone is upset.  I have enough stress being a military child, and the sibling of an autistic little boy. Thanks for the advice Demi, but i'm too scared to follow it.

if your getting bullied tell someone i got bullied cause of braces i got called metal mouth and shook it off cause i knew i would have straight teeth soon and my mom told me that no matter what other people think what u think matters most!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

laya, 13, wv

well, i care because i was bullied for a year and i hated it......It's wrong when someone think that they will better than you by beating you down. I'm glad that the person who bullied me didn't go to far because there are too many people in this world beeing bullied that can end up dead.
I will never understand why someone beat others just to feel good with themselves, it's really stupid and wrong.
Just remenber that you can't keep silence because is worse for you, be strong and always count with your family because they are an awsome help.

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.’”
