I Care Because

But what if the bully does'nt know he/she is being mean??? Because one of my classmates are saying to the bully that, "You know, your being mean and that was'nt nice of you." So the bully replied "Im not a bully. I dont bully anyone" I was really shocked that the bully had said that. Because the bully does'nt know that he/she is bullying that person. They even say they hate bullies too. yet they dont even know they are bullying me....:(

  I care about bullying because I was bullied myself in school from Kindergarten to the twelve grade. The bullying started when I first started elementary school and it didn't end until I graduated from high school. I was constantly teased and harassed everyday when I went to school. 
  I was bullied physically, verbally, mentally, and emotionally. I was teased and picked on for everything for the way I looked and how I acted. It wasn't easy to go through what I went through in school. I was called many low down names in school on a daily basics. I was picked on about from my face features to my body features. I was teased for being different from the other students because I was quiet and smart in school. Other students used to put their hands on me and they would hit, slap, and push me around on a constant basics. 
  The name calling, teasing, and physical abuse continued from grade to grade and it got the best of me at times. At first the bullying and teasing did bother me a lot but after a while I got used to it because it became a normal daily thing for me. I went through a lot in school with the bullying, teasing and harassment but I made it because I had people to support me and encourage me through this period of my life.

Until you have walked in every person's shoes on earth then no one should put others down, not even yourself.

I care because my friend has been and still is bullied. I don"t want to see her break down and try to hurt herself. Whoever is a bully out there, you should be ashamed because it's not cool, or funny to bring someone down to make yourself feel stronger. I've been bullied before and it totally sucks. Demi Lovato rocks because she is one of the few celeberties that want to put a end to bullying, and I admire her for that. PLEASE  STOP BULLYING TODAY, AND SAVE A LIFE.... PLEASE!

I care because I have had past experiences with bullying which had made me into the strong person I am today. I get that everyone has something going on in their lives and do not deserve to be put down by anyone no matter what.

Keira, 15, England

when I feel bullied, I feel like bad person- like I deserve to be bullied. NO ONE derseves to be bullied. I agree that everyne has been at least a little bully, like if you scream at your sister for touching your stuff or something, but It isn't right. People need to STOP. I hope all bulies see this site and STOP, because it is WRONG,CRUEL, and very dangerous.

I know what it's like to be bullied, I understand how hard it can be some days, and I'm able to relate to those who have had it worse than me. My school isn't the best school, the teachers consider it to be a good atmosphere for kids like me, but it's not. Kids pick on the other kids constantly, people get pushed into lockers, kids get tripped in the halls, and you can hear laughter directed at someone wherever you go, all while the teachers are standing only a few feet away. So even though my school isn't the greatest it only makes me more motivated to make a difference, I care because bullying is one thing I just can't tolerate.

My childhood has been a disaster. I get bullied the entire grade school years. They tease me queer and always make fun out of me. Know what, I always cry and cry and ask my mom, "why they always do it to me?"

I going into high school, and knowing that I've been bullied my whole life, I'm always scared just thinking about it. Although so many people have been around people like us who get bullied, their still is That group of people who don't want us to get a happy ending. I just hope that  one special day will come, when bullying will stop, and those who bully realize what harm they do us.

I will not let my children go through the pain of bullying that happened to me. 

Audrey , 19, Tx

I care because I can not stop thinking that maybe the person who bully someone..doesn't really know how much pain he/she makes. Maybe they think that they words can not hurt the people. But they do. I have been bulying...and it's one of the worst feeling ever. I lost my mom, and for somehow it's pretty cool to make fun of that..I support people who doesnt feel very good..and for somehow it's pretty cool to make fun of that. And finally, I'm not perfect..and it's pretty funny call me a "STAR" {5 tips, fat, ugly, weird} yeah..words can be painful. so be careful the next time you say something

Stay strong people!! and keep smiling..you never know who can fall in love  with your smile.

People at my school called me fat and ugly. Although this was terrible, worse than that was the fact that my best friend did the same thing.  From this experience I learned that beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.  Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself. 

Mila, 12, Serbia

I was bullied grade 4- grade 8 and in the first three semesters in college. I wasn't only bullied by the kids who I tried to fit in with but I was also bullied by teachers who called me dumb and useless. I had to face the stupidest people who used a parents' death to bully me. I care because I have nieces and I do not want them to go through what I went . I want them to show these happiness deprived people how they are stronger than them . Bullying does not only take in America it also takes place in countries like Pakistan , India . In other words , all over the world . I hope the best for everyone all around the world and hope that someday bullying does get abolished.

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.’”
