I Care Because

I was bullied along time ago in elementary school. And eversince i got into Middle School i have wanted to prevent other people from feeling like I did.

Stephanie, 15, NY

I care becasue my whole life i have been bullied because of my height and my love for reading and same with my sister except she was bullied because people made fun of her looks and she tried to commute suicide and so i have 3 word 'Make It Stop."

Joshua, 12, Washington state

Kids already have low self-esteem as it is, and to have someone constantly telling them they're not good enough is not okay. Every life is precious no matter who they are and we all need to stand up against bullying

Hannah, 18, Louisville, KY

hannah, 8, wilmington oh

I care because i got bullied. In fifth grade this girl who was my old friend got my 3 other friends to turn on me and bully me. One was my ex best friend. I knew she didnt want to do it, but what other choice did she have? she would come fter her if she didnt. After a while she got the whole class to hate me. I felt so alone.. so wothless. I cut, and i had thoughts of what it would be like if i was never born. It hurt so bad and i dont want it to happen to anyone els. 

Renee, 11, Sterling Heights MI

I have always felt the need to be different and students at my school don't  like that. Everyone blends in and molds together, but the people who ruin that are bullied. I was one of the people who ruined it. I would get so upset that I would cut myself and find any excuse to harm myself. I still don't blend in perfectly, but I've learned to embrace it because that's what life is all about. It's about being different. My heart and all my love goes out to Phoebe and her family and any other person who is bullied

Caitlin, 15, VA

I hurt people who didn't deserve it because I was hurt, and angry. I hurt so many innocent people and I realized that they didn't do anything to me, and it's okay to let people in.
