I Care Because

I have been bullied before and it doesn't feel good to feel like your going to get beat up everyday you go to school. I get bullied everyday by people that hate me I have no idea why they hate me i don't know what I did wrong, sometimes they lie about me and make me have to go to the pricable for something that I didn't even do but I eventually get over it, it doen't feel good to get bullied and I want it to stop.

I belive they bully because they have a lack of selfconfidence and a poor foundation of support When i say poor i don't mean in money. A bully can be any one. Same goes for the target. Bullying is like a cold, you can catch it, or you can prevent it.

I think that bullying is unacceptable because I think that it is unfair for normal kids to be bullied like this. Kids with disabilities are usally one of the highest targets because people think that just because they are diabled that they have no brain or a friend well that it not true everyone has feelings and that they deserve to be treated right because they are just like us.

im poor,so yes i am made fun of. im chubby,so yes i am made fun of. i am short, so ya they make fun of me. i am very insecure and have scars from cutting. it hurts more because i dont really have someone or anyone to talk to. i want to talk about it, but the way they might react doesnt set well in my stomache. so i keep to myself. i try so hard to be strong and ignore the rude comments. but you cant ignore. it all just piles up in your brain and finally you break down crying. ive shed so many tears,i dont think i have any left to cry out. so,i care because it has and still is effecting me,horribly.

I think Bullying is wrong, I am Miss Central Texas PreTeen and my Platform is " Taking A Stand Against Bullying" I am speaking to kids at my school, Churches, and anyone that will listen By taking a stand 
I will tell Teachers, Parents, and Adult when ever i see Someone getting Bullied.I had a friend who was teased daily until her mom took her out and she was Home schooled that is why i care it is a ugly crime, and it needs to stop.

I am only 15 years old and I have already attempted suicide twice. No human being, especially someone so young, should be able to say that they have thought about killing themselves. I have been harrassed and bullied since I was little and I have recently taken a stand against it. No person should be bullied, no person should be made to feel like they are less than adequate. Every human being is a beautiful person with a story and everyone should be given an even chance at happiness. I hope that when I have children of my own they will not know what it feels like to be targeted by people their own age, I hope my children will be able to go to school and feel perfectly safe in every way. I hope for a better tomorrow.

Every one deseves to be on this planet. They shouldn't be bullyed for who they are or what they are. There family wealth shouldn't matter it should be the way the treat peoyple, the way they are, the way they take part in this world. Bullying shouldn't spread.

Dear young people.
When i was in middle school, I was bullied horribly. Every day at school was torture. I never knew what i had done to deserve it, and the kid who lead the bullying had been my good friend. It seemed that everyone hated me, and told me so every day.
One day, after a social studies lesson about clicques, i realized that i wasn't the only person going through this. 
I stopped caring what my former friends did or thought.
Suddenly one day, i went to school and they knew I didn't care about the bullying anymore.
And just like that, the bullying stopped.
I became friends with the "un-cool" kids who were terrific, kind  people. They saved me.
And guess what? I'm old now, and I've had a really fun, happy, wonderful life, with great friends, great travel, good work, and people who love me as i love them. 
Please, please, remember- there is a wonderful world and a good life waiting for you. Bullying is not forever. You are valuable, and you can endure. Think beyond the place you are now! Think of the good you can give this world!
Never ever give up!

I cant stand the way people can bully other people. Me thinking about it makes me want to cry. To all the people being bullied, theres hope. In darkness theres always light. Please dont commit suicide. Those people are bullying you because thier jealuos. I was bullied because i didnt have the right clothes or the right hair style. When i told my mom, she said im beautiful and those little girls are just jealous. I kept being myself and everyone started following the way i looked. So please dont let them put you down. Your a diamond that just needs the right light to sparkle:-)

I care because I watched people bullied others as I just stood and watched the suffer.I beleive that children/teens  should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.

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.’”
