I lost one of my friends to bullying. They don't think that it hurts. Well it does and it changes a person's life forever. Like mine did. Put an end to bullying.

I have never been bullied but I see people being bullied, I feel sad for them being bullied everyday.. I just wish this bullying would stop, so the people being bullied could live their life happy

I don?t want other kids to be experiencing bullying and how devastating and hurtful it can be. I have experienced bullying both at school and online. Others students teased me because they thought I was a little kid. They teased me because I loved Disney. People made fun of me because of my glasses. Many students are home schooled because of what bullying has done to them. These students may never enjoy the pleasure of school. Some people cannot take it, so they risk their own life. It only takes one word, one word, to hurt someone?s feelings. The saying ?Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me? is not true. Words can hurt more than anything else in the world. I hope one day, bullying will come to an end. There are already many lives lost. We don?t want to lose another because of a hurtful word.

From freshman to where I am now, a junior I was bullied for 3 straight years and as always the bullies never once gotten in trouble What's even more sad is that those bullies used to be my friends until I found out that they were all just using me and said so many horrible things behind my back One of them was like my best friend since 6th grade too It was unbelievable, at first I thought I was just having a nightmare but no...it was all true I would cry almost everyday and hide in the bathrooms And when I try to stand up to myself or even confront them They would tell any teacher that I was close to and say "I was bullying them."
And they believed them (bullies)and I was hated and I no longer can see the caring eyes of my teachers...just cold,icy looks Because in their eyes "I was the bully"  when I had done nothing at all And my teachers would forbid anyone from defending me And now I'm just stuck :(

I have had a friend that was bullied everyday at school from maybe 1st grade to 4-5th. She would get stones thrown after her, she would be threatened by knife,or beaten up or called names.
Me and some other friends of mine went to some teachers to talk about it,but they would just ignore it. Or if someone did care, they would just say "stay away from that person that do this. Just ignore it then he would stop," etc..  We got our parents involved and they did so much to help us with this problem. They would go to the principal and ask if he could arrange so this person who bullied her could go to another school. But he couldn't do it. The principal said after alot of discussions "Just wait to you start in 8th grade,then everything will be alright."  But to wait 3-4 years to stop the bullying,it's just ridiculous. Bullying should never be ignored! 
Now when I think of it,I get so mad over that nobody could make her feel good about herself,she would just be ignored by the teachers. 
Now she's doing fine,but bullying really have had an effect on her. Who could blame her? 
Thanks to Demi Lovato for doing something about this. I'm from norway,so sry for bad english. :p

I want students to feel safe in and out of school. Bullying is a problem that I realized yesterday I should get up and try to fix. Bullying is a terrible thing. It needs to be stopped as soon as possible

We all deserve happiness.

I was bullied as a child and an adult... Be that person that reaches out to someone who is alone.. You see a kid sitting alone at lunch--go talk to them.. It only takes one kind word to make someone feel like they matter :)

i've never been bullied, but i know that it is painful on the outside, and the inside.. i hate when i see people being bullied because i don't know how it feels to be them. i want to put a stop to it.

Kyle, 11, MN

Ive been bullied my entire life since 5th grade.  I just wanted it all to stop, all on its own, but i realized that for it to stop, you have to make a move.  A lot of my friends are bullied for the people they are.  They are called names that are horrible, even though most are smart, have great personalities, and have some popular friends.  So i work out a lot so that i can protect myself and others.  Speak out if your getting bullied, dont just sit there and wait for the rainbow after the rain.  Thats what i always say.

Share how PACER’s NBPC has helped you

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.’”
