I Care Because

My Bestfriend has been bulied her whole life. No one likes her because she's different but I love her for the reason of her being different. Everyone would act like she didn't exist and just scream at her and push her punch her and all. I put a stop to it I threatened everyone by telling them i'd go to the prinicipal.They all stopped and let her be the way she is. I find her an amazing friend no matter what!

I was bullied at my old school. It was really tough. I didn't have many friends, and I wasn't popular. I hope some day all bullys with understand what it feels like to be bullied. Then, maybe, they would stop.

Up since middle school & now i am still bullied. but more back in middle school. it mostl likely stopped when i got to high school. but i was still ridiculed & haunted by what people called me. I can never put away what they have haunted within me. I only wish to be able to talk to some one. But i have no confidence in myself. I have always been afraid to speak up. I hurt people because of what i have been through in my past & what i am still going through now. I only wish that  someday i can be a better person. I know that, that can only happen if i start making some good new changes in my life. But it is so hard.

I care because I've been bullied all of my life. It hurts. I've never been physically bullied, but I've been emotionally bullied. People call me fat, ugly, worthless, ect. I don't want people to have to go through what I've been through. People need to know it's NOT okay to bully. Treat others the way you want to be treated. I've though of commiting suicide NUMEROUS times because of the amount of bullying that I've gone through, but Demi Lovato has helped me. Because of her I didn't. Because of HER I have someone to look up to. Because of HER I'm still alive. She is so inspirational and caring, I wish there were people like her at my school. Thank you, Demi, for saving me. Stop the bullying, spread the love.

i care because i was never the queen of my class nor i wanna be,but when you're not a part or the elit,you are thought to be useless,a loser,a nobody....and when you're not one of these girls who are thought to be beautyfull and cool,then you have to put up with them,live your school life being told how much you're not like them and that you're ugly,or not smart enough for them,or even not cool enough to breath their air...well,actually this hasn't happened to me,but to my best friend.thats why i care,because these girls destroy the confidence of brilliant kids and because they're jealous,they just make them believe what they say so that they wont be a threat to their glow!!!well,these kids that are being verbally bullied are bright and beautyful and way better that these  prom queens,someone has just to point that out to them so that they wont be tollerable anymore!!

I was a victim for 3 years in elementary school by a group of girls and I witnessed bullying now in my middle school years. I'm in 7th grade by the way and there's this boy who gets picked on and he's tired of it and he told me he wanted to commit suicide and that's not his first time trying. How many suicides is it going to take for people to notice words hurt ?

I was bullied. I know the feeling I use to get when I walked into that school. The feeling like a rock dropped from my throat to the bottom of my stomach. I remember the words they called me. Even tho it's been 3 years since I was in grade 10, I can recall every harsh word that was said to me. Feeling like I wasn't worth anything and I was useless. Telling my parents I had missed the bus when they heard I wasn't at school, because there were just some days I couldn't handle it . I feel for everyone who's going through that right now. But know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Even when it seems your whole worlds in darkness, I promise there will be someone who will bring you a candle. Just wait. Know you are beautiful and someone out there loves you....for you.

My grandson was being bullied and the school never did anything. My daughter moved to another county just to keep my 8 yr old grandson safe. He was being attacked on the school bus also.

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.’”
