I Care Because

Don't be afraid. You're stronger then them. Find a teacher/adult and be brave for your friends that are getting bullied.

   -peace out girl scout.

Courtney, 13, private

I do get bullied and it's wrong to bully people just because they're different and they're expressing themselves and being themselves. People need to tolerate others better.

Abbey, 14, CT

You don't treat someone like that. Have respect. Don't let people walk all over you. You deserve respect. Not stupid jokes. It's not funny. It's mean. I don't like it. It reflects poorly on them. They are weak to pick on other people. I want to feel happy. Not feel hurt. People don't know what it's like to have people mock them. It's not funny at all. I dislike people who do it. I have no respect for them, they treat people like crap. It is so unfair. I work so hard. It seems no one even notices.

, 14, Cheyenne, wyoming

No one was ever there for me and  people came along and pretending to be a friend but they only choose me as their target. I endured it all by myself just shutting myself off from the world until I developed a hatred for everyone. I started cutting, taking prescribed drugs,poisoning myself, jumping off my roof and hanging myself pretty much everything suicidal. I recently found someone an actual friend that cares and I feel i should just reach out and help others who have experienced bullying.

Rochelle, 14, Jamaica

I've been bullied just because I'm abit fat,they called me names that shouldnt be mentioned,and it wasn't only verbal bullying they used to hit me real bad too,and the worst part was that even my bestfreinds we're joining in but in an indirect way,and my parent weren't a support at all they'ed be to busy to listen or they will just tell me that it's going to be fine,you have to solve it yourself,but then I got a true best freind and she supported me and she helped me speak up to them and now I'm all better so advise to all stick to your best freinds and never be afraid to speak up your mind cause it wont stop unless you did something about it
