I Care Because

bullying is wrong on every level. i just read the story about Phoebe Prince, and it tore me to pieces. my heart and my pain goes out to her and her family and friends. the years of high school can be so rough and for her to have moved from Ireland to Massachusetts was a great accomplishment. she came to the land of pure hope and oppurtunity. and instead she went through pain and humilitation. it is one thing to humiliate a person for their race or skin color, but to critize them for being who they are, is a whole different level of rudeness. i believe in self love and inner confidence, and no one should have to feel unwanted or beautiful because of bullying. Phoebe will always be on my heart and mind. and i hope i am able to help stop the spreading of bullying!

There is never an excuse to bully a disabled student.  They have their own gifts to offer the world and have similar talents as would anyone else.  I had a disability and was often called the "r" word and I'd like to see schools stop using that word and have parents explain to their children that the word is hurtful-period.

Being bullied in jr. high school affected my life forever. I learned to have compassion for people who are different. I was laughed at and teased for being the tallest girl in a school of 3000 plus. I still remember the hurt. There should be classes to teach compassion, inclusion and understanding of others differences. It's just as important as reading, writing and arithimatic.
