   I know what they're going through. I still am. I know others who are too. I want to take a stand and represent. Bullying is wrong. It should be stopped because bullying hurts. It hurts lives. It hurts the lives of kids, parents, adults, and others. I AM taking a stand! ♥

Corinne, 13, Virginia

I care because I was bullied about my weight until 5th grade and then I decided to stop it without violence so I told my teacher and she didn't listen so I asked may I go to the counselor and then she said yes I told the counselor and she gave him in-school suspension and I was never bullied again my message to people that are being bullied is you have to stop him/her from making you feel bad because if you do that makes them feel good and just do it more
