I Care Because

I think bullying is stupid when i see someone get mocked at or called names i stand yp for that person i hate to see someone without a smile on their face i try and make them laugh i was bullied for a long time they quite and moved on as soon as they seen that three years didnt really phase me i hate to see people cry i dont like to see a lot of people judging on another it hurts to know that society is based on what we look like ore what we wear i mean i think its kinda stupid

It's always better to help out in bullying. It is so much better to be with others than to go solo. So try to help everyone and anyone. Also learn both sides of the story. The bully might have a sad back round and may need a friend.

GAMERSUNION, 12, New York

I have been there. I care because I have seen my friends there. I care because I have seen strangers there. It is not a place that I want to be. No one should be there. No one deserves that. 

Jessie, 18, NJ

I know people who were bullied. My close friend attempted suicide because she as bullied. Innocent people are getting hurt everyday, and for what reason? The satisfaction of the bully. Why should I let someone suffer when I know I can help stop their suffering? Why do I have to be bullied to do something? Why should I let others control my judgement? The answer is, I shouldn't. So I am going to be the change I want to see in the world.

Tazz, 13, NY

I was bullied with words and I can say it hurts so bad,I think words hurts more than physical violence. Bullism is wrong,bullism is not funny,bullism is something that you will never forget in your life. Bullism hurts so bad. People pick you just because you're different,they start saying you're ugly,you're gay (for guys),you're retarded and other bad things. It's absolutely wrong and stupid.I wish it could stop forever.

Laura, 12, IT

End Bullying now..... Bullying is world-wide and should be ended now

Kate, 12, South Australia

I care because students or anyone should not be bullied. I have not been bullied myself but i have witnessed someone being bullied and it was not ok. So if you are bullied report it.
