I Care Because

teens r age r getting hurt to much :(

taylor, 13, cornwalll

I might have not been bullied but I have been hurt. Being hurt by my 'bestfriends'. Even if the people who are hurting you happen to be your 'friends' tell someone, cuz they aren't a friend if they do what they do to you. I learned, and I'm healing

Shivani, 13, MA

Many kids hurt themselves because of bullying and their are a lot of kids that sit by themselves at lunch I bet YOU would make their day if you sat by them. And remember WORDS HURT.

Maranna, 13, Ohio, Galion

I have been bullied for no apparent reason, those bullies are just people who want to bring you down because they think they are being a better person. They only see your flaws and take advantage of that, they cant see their own flaws.
Stay Strong (:

leah, 14, florida

I was bullied in the 8th grade verbally and it hurt a lot and I didnt have a lot of friends and not a lot of self confidence so it hurt a lot

Sara, 15, Ohio

I have been bullied my whole life, and it needs to be stopped. No one deserves to be afraid to go to school, go home, or to even keep living. We all need to band together to help prevent other cases of bullying from popping up to torment other students. 

Allison , 16, Mississippi

this bullying thing needs to stop whether your young or old . Its not right and its not fair. i used to be bullied myself,when i was in kindergarden and i would always ask myself... what did i do wrong. i know how it feels and it does hurt thats why im against it.
