I Care Because

I know what it's like. I've been bullied since I was in the 4th grade. It has just recently came to an end when I got in high school. It's not nice to be bullied. You feel alone. People say tell an adult, but most of the time the adults doesn't do anything. But when you don't tell nobody and it goes on for years things gets worse than it began. First it starts off with verbal bullying, next is emotional, then  physical, then cyber-bullying. There is so many types of bullying; and neither one of them is good. Bullying is bullying. It hurt people. It destroys lives, families, and friendships. A little piece of advice the people that bully you are more likely going to be family members or people who you thought was your friends. Don't let bullying destroys your life. Every life is precious.

I was bullied all through Elementary School and I am still being bullied and am about to go into 8th grade, and I have so many loving friends that support me when I am sad, and I don't cut as much because I want to be around them.

I've seen people i really care about be bullied and kids that i don't even know, and sometimes i think that it hurts me worse then it does them.
But i want bullying to stop for everyone, no one deserves to be treated the way some people are. I'm going to do everything i can to stop bullying in my school, and in schools everywhere! I don't want my kids or grandkids to be afraid to go too like some kids are today..

i was bullied in primary school straight through to the end of high shool and still now sometimes and whether it is physical blying or name calling it still hurts luckily some of the time my friends would stick up for me but i also learned to stick up for my self and it kinda stopped but i wish i had learnt how to stick up to them sooner... life would have been so much easier ..... bullying is wrong and i don't care if the bully has family problems or problems withf friends or whatever the reasons are they shouldn't make others feel bad to make themselves feel better

Bullying is not something that should be done to anyone. People that like to bully other people are just full of hate. They don't have anything better to do with their lives. I have been bullied before and it isn't fun. People say that My Forehead is bigger then other peoples but I don't see it. But does what they say affect me. I always try to blow it away but that doesn't always help. But I know I always have friends there to help me. If you are being bullied tell someone. Don't just keep it inside. There is people out there that will help you, And it is much needed if you are getting bullied. Tell your parents. teachers, Principals, or any trusty adult.

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.

As someone who has been bullied for years in school, I feel that no one deserves to be bullied. However, bullying is already a tradition in my current high school- Grade 11 tends to bully the new underclassmen via extracurricular activities, in which they claimed this bullying method as the preparation for uni life, while actually it makes the grade 10 feel pressured. Me and my friends has started an anti-bullying campaign anonymously and we're now ready to spread the message schoolwide.

This is ridiculous conduct. And never accepted. Its got to stop: the cruelty and violence. It destroys lives both physically and mentally.

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.’”
