It began with complaints of a stomachache, followed by headaches and sore throats and other excuses about not feeling well. Although Amy wasn’t sure why, before long it became obvious that her 10-year-old daughter, Sarah, did not want to go to school.

I have been there and i know how it feels to be bullied, and everytime i see someone i dont even know or getting bullied i stop it and say to the bullies, "have some respect" and they always back-off.
I believe that bullying needs to just stop completely and I know plenty of people would agree with me 100%. I feel so strongly about this subject because i was at that point where i wanted to kill myself due to bullying and yet I overcame the bullying and i am stronger than ever! I have set goals for myself to wrestle at the University of Iowa Hawkeyes after highschool and i plan on joining the military next year when im junior. Yes i have had a difficult life (not as bad as others, but still quite bad), but im not gonna just stand around and let the opinion of one person shape my life . I have created a anti-bullying page on facebook for my school and i feel that it has helped! My advice to everyone is to STAY STRONG!

I bully people and i have been bullied a little but it is not right and it doesn't make you feel good no matter what. It hurts many people and it could hurt you and I want it to stop because nobody is better or more powerful then anyone else so we need to all just stick together and be friends and STOP BULLYING! you wouldn't like it if it was your best friend, cousin, brother, sister, or even YOU committing suicide because of the immature people who think they are all that. It needs to end and people who bully need to get help and stop all this drama and picking on people!

i care because i was never the queen of my class nor i wanna be,but when you're not a part or the elit,you are thought to be useless,a loser,a nobody....and when you're not one of these girls who are thought to be beautyfull and cool,then you have to put up with them,live your school life being told how much you're not like them and that you're ugly,or not smart enough for them,or even not cool enough to breath their air...well,actually this hasn't happened to me,but to my best friend.thats why i care,because these girls destroy the confidence of brilliant kids and because they're jealous,they just make them believe what they say so that they wont be a threat to their glow!!!well,these kids that are being verbally bullied are bright and beautyful and way better that these prom queens,someone has just to point that out to them so that they wont be tollerable anymore!!

I've been bullied all my life. Even by my own family memeber they called me names they teased me they said so many things that i became afraid of them. I never understood why they were so mean to me. As i got older they kept on teasing me even more. Things got worse when i went school people started staring and me and laughing at me since i walked into school. People began calling me names i never understood why they were being so mean to me i remember going home after school and crying. After a while i began thinking i deserved everything they were calling me i was scared to go to school i didnt want people to keep making fun of me people dont realize how hurtfull all the things that they are saying Bulling should stop they are destroying lifes and causeing alot of deaths i know that i will never be able to get over what people said to me But i dont want anyone else to suffer what im still stuffering
