Dont want to, 12, sc\goose creek

I am an openly gay high school student so I know what it is like to be bullied. I care because I know what it is like be down in the dumps... No where to run.. No where to hide... No body to talk to... Well guess what.. There is help.. There is a place to run... Someody who you deeply trust or a higher authority figure would be the best route to move when bringing attention to bullying.. You're not alone.... Other people are bullied daily too.. Just be strong and puch through.. You have a lot more to live for :)

Bullying is a nationwide problem that needs to be stopped!  No one needs to be bullied because they are different.  Everyone is different in their own way.

I go through bullying I have for 10 years now, they always find reasons to bully me. I guess what I'm saying is I care because I felt the aggression of bullying and I don't want anyone else feeling about them selves  the way I feel about myself :)

Muthia, 14,

I have been bullied throughout the entire time I've been in school. I was picked on for being weird and different then others. I was teased for always caring about others and family. I was hurt with words and those words caused me to do things I did to myself. I was tossed around the locker room and hit by my so called "friends". I had friends that called me names and it hurt me. I hurt my self and others because I thought it would make me feel better but it didn't. I have been talking to my family about it but they also caused some of those hurtful things mostly my sisters. Now my sisters are helping me and i have a family that love me for me. I don't need friends all I need is animals and family.

bullying is wrong. period. no matter what form it is, it is still wrong. i have been bullied in the past and it does not feel good. if you are a bully put yourself in your victims place. how would you feel? not so good, huh? point: bullying hurts.

"I see it going on all around me and I hate it! What I hate the most is that I can't be my self. I get made fun of  for haveing trouble in school and how I dress. I like to stay home as much as I can  but I don't whant my parents to know what is going on. I also see my little sis getting made fun of all the time and I don't know what to do. And It really bugs me how I just go along with it when ppl are talking about my own family. I try to do something about it and it just gets worse and I get picked on even more. I just wish ppl could see how much the things they do and say hurt. I just want it to stop."

My friend was being bullied by a group kids in high school and because of bullying i lost my friend. People always forget how much words hurt to people . We ALL need to put an end to bullying.

I care because I've seen and experienced bullying and even the popular girls know bullying is wrong but they still do it. 

Amanda, 13, Ohio

  I'm being bullied right now. It's scary, and it hurts and the thought of bullying is always there in your mind. No matter what you do you can't stop thinking about it. I lost most of my "bestfriends" during the time I was being bullied, but now I know who my real friends are. 
     If you see someone being bullied, SPEAK UP. Bullies cannot bully unless you give them the power to do so. TALK to the victim if you see them being bullied. Invite them to sit with you if they're alone. 
    Nobody deserves to live as a victim. You're worth it.

There is no need to bully someone, so why do it? Does anyone really think that bullying helps,well if you do think again bullying hurts and does not help.If someone is being bullied help them or get a adult. People all around the world hurt or kill themselfs because of this thing bullying
Stand up for yourself and others. Treat others the way you want to be treated and you would not want to be bullied so do not bully others. Bullying can not do any good but it can cause harm. Please speak up and remember be a buddy not a bully.Bullying needs to end sometime, so why not try to make it end now!!???

Share how PACER’s NBPC has helped you

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.’”
