I Care Because

I am not a bully and im not being bullied as well, but finding out that others are, makes me sad and upset. It doesn't make sense for someone to hurt others. They have no rights to hurt others. The victims shouldnt committ suicide because of it though. They should be able to live their life without being bullied. Their are alot of people who are against this, as well as i am. If we bring more awareness to the world, we will see a major difference in this world, we call home. We can end this. It only takes one voice to bring awareness, a million voices to make a change.

I was bullied a lot before highschool, by someone who I thought was my friend. I didnt have anyone to stand by me while being teased, I didnt have a friend to comfort me. I use to cut, and I contemplated suicide, and attempted it, twice. After I got out of middle school, I left my bully "friend" behind. I realized how much I would've missed if I committed suicide. I would have never of met my real friends and I would have devestated my parents. I have been through so much teasing, and it hurts me so much to see other people being bullied, especially to the point of feeling theres no way out except to take your own life. That is why I care

ni used to be bullied in the begginng of the year. people called me ugly , dumb , and stupid. also other names , i used to write abusive and suicidal letters and praying i would die. my best friend Daija kept telling me im pretty and very smart and to never let anyone bring me down. one day a bully actually physically hit me and we was fighting. i started to use fighting to get my anger out.  my principal tried to talk me out of it . now instead i write down my feelings , rip it up , and throw in the trash or talk to my friends. fighting is only damaging yourself more. my friend  Rafiah learned her lesson and got sent to juevinelle hall. Now she's ou and we learned not to fight. me and my friends ignore peolpe now. once you ignore , they'l get sick and tired of trying . they jus wanna hurt you to make them feel better. ignore is the key for me to bullys

i was bullied,almost all throughout my life. I don't people to have to deal with what i dealt with.So i want to make a change by starting with my school and try to help kids that also have a trouble too.

I used to be a bully. I was horrible to so many kids and I used the excuse of having bad things happening in my life, not realizing that the kids that I bullied could have some bad things happening in their lives as well. I learned about a kid that I bullied life. And it was horrible. It sucks now that I ook back and know that I just added more pain. Once I figured it out, I wrote him a letter telling him how sorry I was. Fortunately to this day he and I are friends. I feel so lucky that he forgave me. Now I am a completely different person and if you ask my peers at school they would say I am the sweetest kid they know. I want to help the bullied and the bullies. I stand up for kids who are picked on and I will leave my lunch table and go sit with someone that is sitting by themselves even though it not what everyone else is doing. NO ONE DESERVES TO BE BULLIED. And for the bullies I ask that you try to put yourself in that kid's shoes adn wonder what they have to deal with at school AND HOME. Hopefully when we all get older we can just tell our kids about how people USED TO BE bullied because they were different or an easy target and say that we are glad that it no longer exists. Hopefully one day this will all be ancient history. For the bullied kids I want you to know that you are loved and cared for and that it will stop. Try your hardest to stay strong. Peace luv rcknroll

Your Story is Powerful

Posted: Tuesday, December 16, 2014

This past October, Michael and Marisa, two inspirational spokespersons for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, hosted the “Your Story is Powerful” event to give teens across the country an opportunity to share their personal experiences with bullying. We received many entries and thank everyone who participated! Josh, who is 14 years old, was randomly selected to receive the MacBook Air. Here is Josh’ story about bullying:

It all happened one day at recess in 3rd grade. I was on the swings pumping my legs back and forth in a rhythmic pattern, when suddenly the rhythmic pattern came to a halt and my life was never the same. Two girls, who appeared to be in 2nd grade, came up to the swings and started calling me ‘handicapped.’ Then they proceeded to tease me and sing in a tuneful, but tasteless song; ‘handicap, handicap, handicap.’ I knew that I shouldn’t let this incident go unnoticed, because, after all, they were bullying me. My friend, who was sitting next to me at the time, told me to a) ignore them and b) tell a supervisor. So we went to seek the assistance of a supervisor and told her what happened. She then came with us to the scene of the incident and punished the two girls by sending them inside.

For those of you who think that I was being a tattletale, I wasn’t. From that point on, I knew that I would be a strong advocate for people with disabilities. Now I am involved in my community by spreading the word around to end the “R-word” even if it is just fellow classmates I am spreading the word to. My hope is that my friends will tell their friends and eventually start a chain reaction, showing that one person can make a difference in their community. This is also an example of actions speak louder than words, because even though words can hurt, we as humans can overcome them and take a stand. This incident has helped to shape the person that I am today, and my message toward my other friends and peers to be more inclusive and advocate for what they believe and value.

Again, thank you to Michael and Marisa for hosting this event and for their continued support of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. With events like “Your Story is Powerful,” students can continue to raise awareness about the importance of bullying prevention.
