I Care Because ...
Not only do we all matter, we are more than we will ever know. You care, to me, you anyone even those who seem distant.

I used to be a bully. In my mind I didnt call it bullying. Now i look back at it and think how horrible I acted over childish things. Now I am 18 an I swear that I will be helpful. I am the end to bullying

When I was in junior high school, i was bullied and harassed because of my weight and my looks. My teeth weren't always perfect or white like everyone else's. I was also bullied for liking horses and anything else i liked. It got so bad that i ended up having my parents come up to the school and my doctor to give me a medication to calm me down because i hated going. I remember one day coming home on the bus and some kid says 'oh there's a dog on the bus' meaning me. that HURT. I cried and called my best friend. the main thing was i had family who cared about me and friends. When you bully someone you have NO idea how badly that it hurts them. Why do you do it? To feel better about yourself? To make others feel inferior? either way bullying has to STOP. Its horrible and not right. More people need to get involved in this and end bullying once and for all because this causes real damage to people and it HURTS them. Words really do hurt. i'm 33 now, and let me tell you. i dont miss those bullies in school. HS was awesome. i loved it and had a lot of friends. If you feel you're being bullied/harassed, tell your parents immediately. if you get depressed, also get help. remember there are people that love you and there's nothing wrong with YOU.

I care because I have been bullied because of my height and I know of people who have also been bullied. It crushes my heart, this needs to stop.

I have never been bullied before. But I have stoped it when ever I could. If I couldn't stop it right then I would always tell a adult. One day after school I was about to leave and walk home but when I was leaveing the building I saw "Big Ben" he was choking a kid much smaller than him. When I saw it I just froze I didn't know what to do, my first instinct was to run so I did. Right when I ran out the door I started to cry the hardest I have ever cried before. I automatically ran inside and couldn't find him so I ran to the office and told the counselor. He told me that he has talked to "Big Ben" about this before and would talk to him again. I went home and thought of all the times that I have seen people being bullied and stoped it but I couldn't this time. To this day I think about it often and I feel terrible about it.

i care because i know how hard it is when someone bullies you. i never thought anyone could help. untill i told my friends. no one should ever be alone in those kind of situations...ever. we're all talented and srtong, but not all of us know that. my friends helped me be strong and stand up against the people who teased me and pushed me. now if someone says stuff just to hurt me, i show them how wrong they were about me and i help anyone i see in these situations. bullies only bully you if you let them. so don't let them. everyone can light the night sky. #GLowInTheDark:)

I don't like seeing or hearing about bullying. It's a terrible thing to do because it leads to suicide and self harm. I understand how it feels to be brought down and I don't want anyone else to feel the way I felt. I started to believe what people were saying about me and that's not right. Who I am isn't what anyone else says but me. I want other people to feel confident about themselves and not care about what other people think because we're all different in our own ways and that's what makes us who we are. No one should be bullied, nor should anyone bully another person. It's just not right.

Life is so much more than just trying to be cool, or impressing your friends. Life is valuable to each and every person and bullying can push people to the point where they no longer see the value in it they just feel like an outcast to society and just want the pain to end. I care because I have been on both ends and I now relize how much damage I had inflicted up on a person and I will forever regret it and being bullied I know how it felt everyday to be starred and laughed at, but it has made me who I am today. I am much stronger then who I was then and I am willing to help out anybody going through that kind of pain because life is way to valuable to let it to how other people see you, or how you enjoy your life. How you see yourself is the only thing that should matter, each and every person is beautiful in their own way be yourself, and let people come to you don't try to be like anyone else. Its your life you live it the way you want to!

I have been bullied metally and physically, and I know it's hard. I know kids now who are being bullied, but other kids, don't speak up; or tell a teacher. I believe that if anyone who has seen someone being bullied tells a teacher, then we will have more peace at school, at home, and in the world. To help spread this message, I started a bully prevention club with all my friends and our goal is to stop as much bullying as we can. WE HAVE THE POWER AND WE USE IT!!! YOU HAVE THE POWER! DO YOU ISE IT?

As an ongoing bullying victim no one should have to suffer like I do. I have a hearing problem and people hate me for it. But bullying victims out there like me you are not alone and justice will come for you one day.
Luke - 17 - Georgia
Well I think that bullies NEED TO STOP I was a victim for 7 years I got physically bullied by boys for 2-1/2 years and I've had to deal with all types of bullying and I know how much it hurts I can't say that I've never self harmed or had suicidal thoughts because then I would be lying... I'm now in year 10 and I'm organising a fundraiser to raise money for charities against bullying and I'm also doing everything I can to help people that are suffering how I did by putting out my story in a video and showing my whole school and now I'm a bullying ambassador and I'm like a kinda councillor helping others with their problems. If I never had the help I did from my teacher at the school I'm in now and from my friends here I don't think I'll be sharing this with you or actually be here right now and I'm so thankful for them people who helped me...I look up so much to Demi Lovato and I'm trying my best to be as positive as her and help others in the way she does she is amazing and I hope one day I can say that to her face to face.

I care because i see a lot of people at my school get bullied, not only them but also myself and it hurts. I know people whose been hospitalized because of bullying and i know people who self-harm. When i see it happen to someone else... i talk to them afterwards to see if they're okay but when it happens to me, i just take it and it hurts so much. There's no one that cares about me when it happens, so i care about others because i know what it is like to have nobody there for you and i just want it too stop. I want it to stop so much.

Dear young people. When i was in middle school, I was bullied horribly. Every day at school was torture. I never knew what i had done to deserve it, and the kid who lead the bullying had been my good friend. It seemed that everyone hated me, and told me so every day. One day, after a social studies lesson about clicques, i realized that i wasn't the only person going through this. I stopped caring what my former friends did or thought. Suddenly one day, i went to school and they knew I didn't care about the bullying anymore. And just like that, the bullying stopped. I became friends with the "un-cool" kids who were terrific, kind people. They saved me. And guess what? I'm old now, and I've had a really fun, happy, wonderful life, with great friends, great travel, good work, and people who love me as i love them. Please, please, remember- there is a wonderful world and a good life waiting for you. Bullying is not forever. You are valuable, and you can endure. Think beyond the place you are now! Think of the good you can give this world! Never ever give up! eileen

I went through bullying for years and had a very tough time. I don't want others to go through what I, and other victims like me, went through. I never want that same suffering to happen to others, regardless if i know them or not. Nobody deserves to be bullied.

I care because I am a human being who believes that other human beings, no matter the age, race, height, weight, gender, sexual orientation, economic level, or religious affiliation, should be disrespected, but instead should be appreciated for the uniqueness they bring to this world. Most people are bullied because, for some reason, their taunters think they "stand out" and are not part of the norm or status quo. Well what a sad little world we would live in if we WERE all the same! It would be uninspiring and mundane. Cruelty on any level is absolutely inappropriate in ANY situation, but to exact such on a daily basis to another to push them to the point of contemplating suicide is a social disease for which we have the responsibility of finding a cure. How dare someone mentally or physically bully another whom they consider different, or who has possibly caused an unintended offense against them. It is very easy for a person who has yet to find a strong sense of individuality (which include most children and teens) find their spirits crushed when they aren't treated with due respect and kindness. Whether you have never been a victim or perpetrator of bullying, we as humans must band together to bring healing and resolution to all parties in this catastrophic situation.

I have been bullied since the first grade. I have had websites made about me. I have been beaten up for no reason at all. I just switched schools about a month ago because I just couldn't hadle anymore.I go to councilors and teachers and they all just say the same thing "It is going to get better" but if you dont do anything to make it get better it won't. I want to put an end to bullying so that kids/teens can stop living in fear. Stop being scared to go to school, scared to go to the park, scared to even just leave their own house.
Aislinn - 15 - Massachusetts
I've been through very horrible situations that changed me. I was jumped by 4th graders when I was just 8. I was alone, never to be friended by anyone besides teachers and my parents. Bullying got to me so much to the point of breaking, and I nearly choked a kid 2 years older than me to death because I lost my temper. I don't have that problem anymore, but I'm afraid it will happen to my brother. He's only 7, but they pick on my brother sometimes, and he gets himself into trouble by fighting the kids. I really want this to stop, everybody I know is being bullied just because of who they are, and I hate it. Bullying is dangerous. It caused a few people to commit suicide because of this problem.

Kelsey - 12 - Jeffersonville Indiana
I care because bullying is a real life problem that I deal with on a day to day basis. Bullying is not fun or cool. Be the cure not the cause. Life goes on but, don't make peoples lives harder
Harley - 13 - Wisconsin
I have been bullied ever since I started Kindergarten and all the way up to my senior year. I care because I know what it can do to a person, I know the struggles and the pain. It hurts, It hurts alot and to know that it's happening everywhere scrares me. I used to cut and I wanted to kill myself because people wee always telling me how stupid, ugly, and fat I was. I went a whole shool year only eating one meal a day to try and lose weight. I tried sitting with different people to try and make new friends. Nobody would accept me. I sat by myself a lot and when I started my new school in Junior year it got worse. I hada mental breakdown every week and I cried myself to sleep hoping the next day would be better. I dpmt want anybody going through what I went through and I want to end bullying for good. I want to break the cycle! I love you all and I want to just tell you to STAY STRONG!! <3
