I Care Because

In seventh grade I thought that life was great and that the world was fine but that slowly changed. At first the year was great and I had tons of friends and was even considered one of the "popular" girls. Then one day everything changed. Out of no where all of my "friends stopped talking to me and I didn't know what I did wrong so I kept hanging out with them. One day we were all sitting at lunch and they started picking on me, insulting my clothing and how i looked, so I got up and left. I thought my "best" friend would follow me but she just sat there and laughed with the rest of them. I felt really alone but pretended that it didn't effect me. I stopped going to lunch and would just sit in the library at that time, then I stopped eating all together. One day my "best" friend walked up to me and asked what was wrong and when i told her that I didn't want to talk to her anymore she said she and her friends were going to jump me after school. I had to call my mom during class and ask her to come pick me up because i was so scared. They didn't jump me but everyday they would push me in the hall and slam me into lockers, even knocking my books down the stairs. My mom went to the principle and stuff but they didn't do anything so my mom pulled me out and i now go to school online

I care because,every single person is effected by thing problem, we all have been bullied and are the bully even if we don't know it. Saying "I'm not a bully so I'm preventing bulling" is a lie and a easy excuse to avoid the problem. We can stand together to change but we need to be willing to work together because together we are stronger,

Bullying is a crucial thing in the world and it needs to be stopped. I strongly believe that if everyone helps out to stop this major issue, we can make a difference! So everyone who ever sees bullying, prevent it by bully proofing! Stand up to him/ her, and make a difference!!!! :)

 I am active in my school with a program called the buddy program. the buddy program at my middle school has the eighth graders helping and mentoring the 5/7th graders. the eighth graders are called the big buddies and the littler kids are called the little buddies. I am so excited for the fall so I can get started. working with them and helping to make my school a better place. For most of the little buddies you are one of their only friends so you need to be there for them. once I herd that you could sign up right now me and 2 of my closest friends said that when we got out of class we were going to the office to sign up. 
                   BECAUSE WE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Bullying is NEVER okay anywhere! Not even cyberbullying, sexual harassment, physical and verbal bullying, public humiliation, and many others. I might be able to stand uo to end bullying in many places around the world. I can change what's happening in my school.

New data indicate the first significant decrease in school-based bullying since the federal government began collecting that data in 2005, suggesting that efforts at the federal, state and local levels to prevent bullying may be paying off. According to new data from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the reported prevalence of bullying among students ages 12 to 18 dropped to 22 percent after remaining stubbornly around 28 percent for the past decade.

"As schools become safer, students are better able to thrive academically and socially," U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said. "The Department, along with our federal partners and others, has been deeply involved in the fight against bullying in our nation's schools. Even though we've come a long way over the past few years in educating the public about the health and educational impacts that bullying can have on students, we still have more work to do to ensure the safety of our nation's children."
