I Care Because

I think bullying is wrong because you would not like to be treated like that at all so lets stop! and make the world a better place 

mihivan, 15, fargo nd

I've been there. I know how hard it was to wake up not wanting to get out of bed to face the world. I let the opinions of others get to me and i started to believe it myself. I struggled from an eating disorder and my self-esteem quickly shut down. i felt like i needed to be perfect to it in. I'm happy to say i have overcome that struggle in my life. I realized that you must learn to love yourself for who you are. You are here for a reason, a purpose, and no one should tell you otherwise. You must know that you are so much stronger than you think. Surround yourself with people who are positive and who love you. Just know that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL ALWAYS !

i've always'd been bullied, even since 1st grade i've been called, fat,ugly,stupid,and a ton of other things. I have cut before, and tried killing myself. the school principal found out, and she didnt do anything. I get teased a lot, and I'm a vegetarian, and there is a rumor that this kid saw me at McDonalds, and I hate Mcdonalds! :'( and it just kept happening and happening. . .I just want all of this to stop. And I've been rejected before, too many times. I wish all bullying can stop, and the bully-ers realise what there doing is bad.!

I have Tourettes and people use to call me a freak. I didnt really have any friends and i felt alone:( No one should feel like they are alone or they are a freak just because they have problems.

Bullying is something that u shouldny play with. Some kids really get hurt and if you were that person that is getting bullied u wouldnt like  it. So if your against bullying ty to stop it, it you see someone getting bullied try to help that person its still not to late make a stand! =]

Ashley, 13, nj

When I was in elementary school, I use to get bullied a lot. I haven't been bullied since, until recently, it didn't bother me as much, because it was cyber bullying, something that was foreign to me. Until, I found out my 10 year old niece has been a victim of cyber bullying by adults. Parents felt the need to exploit her personal style of dressing and harass her online. It broke my heart.  Bullying has evolved and so should the discussion. No one should experience bullying especially because someone else is insecure. We need to empower our adults and youths to stand up against bullying. To be a voice for someone in need.
