I Care Because

I care because people bully me they call me fat and it changes your mind to think this:

Fat                               You will never be good enough

                 You need to be skinny

                                                                         Everyone hates you

You will never be pretty or loved or cared for by another human being

         You are disgusting 

                                                               Stop eating fatty 

   No one deserves to feel this way even though I do.  You will probably look at this and say she is 12 what does she know. Guess what? NEWS FLASH age doesn't matter and I care a hole lot

After reading about Phoebe Prince in 17, I felt so shocked as to hear that there are people out there who get bullied bad enough that it comes down to killing themselves. 
It's not right for people of both genders to pick on someone else because they are different or they are the new kid in school. When I was in first grade, it was an awful year for my parents transferred me to the Catholic school in my hometown. One look at me and everyone was calling me fat, ugly, and stupid. I had some type of form of dyslexia, and the bullying and just got worse. I could read, just not very well, and when I had to read in front of the entire class for an assignment, people would laugh Ias I would read. The worst part is none of the teachers did anything about it!!!  I would go to a teacher and tell, but the girls that made fun of me were the golden children. My parents tried to help by getting my multiple tutors to help me in and outside of school. 
Eventually I left the Catholic school for the public school, and I was praised being called the smart girl, and such a sweetheart. I barely got bullied. 
It's just wrong that bullying has to happen, that is why I care.

Know one deservs to be bullied. I know some people at my school that get bullied. But most of them get bullied behinde there back. I used to make fun of people but then i stoped becuase i noted how bad it het them and so now i hang out with them. soetimes i stand up for them. If your a person that gets bullied tell a teacher or an adolt if they dont do enything about it then tell a parent.NO one needs to be bullied.

These kids who are bullying are our future. Someday -- soon -- they will be leading this world and have more power than they should. Can you imagine what the world will be like once these kids have all the power they want? I am against bullying because it is a greater problem than anyone believes. We need to step up and get to the root of the problem and fix it. Because if we can't do it, then who can?

I care about bullying alot. When I was 8 years old up to 10, in my old school. I used to cry alot. People did not hurt me physacilly but emotionally. But it still hurt. I was depressed so bad, my family decided to change everything, move house, move schools. And now, I am happy and help people. Most of my friends bully some people and now I stop and tell them off. :] I am 100 percent against bullying!

the smallest words can scarr us for life internally because It's a long and hard process to pick up all the peices of a broken heart, that is why i think hearts should just be full of joy and love x <3

since I was 6 I was picked on. I had thing thrown at me. people called me names I moved place to place because of it. I am still getting picked on. I let it bother me I cut,I had a eating disorder. just like demi Lovato when I  heard her story it made me think who cares what other people think. I love that demi Lovato come out to people and helps them through it. she my inspiration because of it. she my role model because of her I quit hurting my self and I won't to help fight against bullying. I was also picked on because I dint have a lot of money. but I don't let that bother me. when I'm upset I listen to my music and I put on demi and helps me. I have a great mother who stay by my side when I fell like hurting myself I talk to her and it helps. so don't let those bully's put you down. some one once said ?your beautiful for who you are and to STAY STRONG? and that person was demi Lovato so I want to help fight against bulling. I recently stuck up for a friend of mine he is in special ED and he talks to himself outloud and a girl said SHUT UP, and so I pulled him closer to me and have him talk to me until the bell rang and I told his teacher and thing like that bother me. that why I want to help fight against bulling. thank you for caring and listening.

I care because a lot of people don't even know the half of whats happening and this issue really needs to be brought up more than it is because, the bullying that happens causes over 4,000 deaths a year. I know this is old but the story about the girl who got punched in the face because she didn't like a group called ICP (Insane Clown Posse) and its not like it was another girl either, it was a 15 boy who was on the wrestling team.

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.’”
