I Care Because

:(

It gets a little weird when I get to school every morning because I remember the time I got bullied in class because I mixed up something. And then Cooper yelled out "hey guys! Jack mixed up his letters!" Everyone laughed except for Megan who stood up for me. So she made me feel better.

My sister and i have both been bullied , im tired of it the kids make fun of my sister cause shes different . I have been bullied because people think im ugly or they talk about me . Im tired of it , Im sick of seeing people being bullied . I speak out against bullying because the people who are bullies have no life and think they can bully somebod for no reason what so ever.

i saw two kids get bullied at my school and they both left. Now me and my friends feel left out from the rest of the class and they purposefully leave us out. One time kids were going to play a game and they asked a kid to play who was standing right next to me. They looked at me and just left. Today, they were talking about an end of the year party and they were sitting right next to me and my friends. One of the kids said,"We can invite everybody, well almost everybody..." They looked at us when they said the last thing. Kids don't get that just because i sing and do plays it does not mean i'm not athletic or like girls. People don't get you can be more than one thing. BULLYING NEEDS TO STOP!!!!!
