I Care Because

I care about bullying because I've been bullied and bullied people. I've had my karma for bullying. Trust me, you get what you give. Bullying is nothing cool, funny, or good. Don't do it. 

Megan, 14, Missouri

I was personally incessantly bullied throughout my formative years. We were poor so I oftened had to dress in hand me downs I am also missing my left forearm. It was mainly other girls who bullied me by means of "gossip and social ostracization". I also experienced some very agressive sexual harassment by young men who viewed me as "easy prey". In so many ways I owe a debt of gratitude to my former tormentors because it was their lack of compassion towards me that shaped my present identity, Bullying is not a "victimless crime" and normalizing this type of behavior is the worst way to address the problem. creative solutions must be found but this is not possible without widespread community cooperation.

Candace Casey, 36, Merced, California

no one should have to go through that. i wish people would just get along without all of this drama.bullying is never YOUR fault. and never become the bully. it is not a way of life and should never happen so don't believe that lie. word cant hurt you physically, but they can hurt you internally and you may never forget it. don't let them put you down and don't be a bystander, help them. tell an adult.we have lost enough people to suicide because of bullying, we shouldn't lose anymore, so stand up and speak out!

Jasmyn, 14, meredosia, illinois

When I was in elementary I was bullied because I didn't look the same and I wasn't the same size as everybody. But that didn't stop me for what I liked to do. I believe if just keep your head up then you can do what ever your heart feels like doing.

Kirsten, 13, Houston tx

     I hate bullying...look what it has done! I want to STOP it!

Pearl, 9, Kiev, Ukraine

I have been made fun of because of my weight for as long as i can remember. People would tell me to gag myself. I would sit alone at the lunch table, as people called me fat. I never felt pretty, i never felt wanted. I wanted to die. I was called every name imaginable. I thought it would go away in high school, but it didnt. these 3 boys in my class called me fat and tortured me by calling me Rose O'donnel. They would laugh and i would pretend i didnt hear, but as soon as id go home i would cry, and think of what it would be like if i commited suicide. but im starting to realize, that im beautiful. suicide hasnt crossed my mind in months. i am beautiful. But im not the only person who goes through this. Bullying needs to be stopped! We need to take a stand against bullying!
