I Care Because ...
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.

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.

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.

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.

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've been bullied since I started preschool. And it was all because I didn't have the coolest bows in my hair. I'm in 7th grade now, and I get bullied worse than ever. All but two of my friends have left me. Ever since I told them about my depression and self harming issues, they have been calling me names and made me feel like I'm not worth anything. I care because no matter what, there will be people who don't like you. But I care about you, more than you think.

icecys - 18 - detroit
I go through bullying I have for 10 years now, they always find reasons to bully me. I guess what I'm saying is I care because I felt the aggression of bullying and I don't want anyone else feeling about them selves the way I feel about myself :)

I know how it feels to be bullied, and be the bully. I wanna change the way people feel and I want to help those who have no where else to turn. I want to be the person I wish I would've had when I was down.
Kendall - 16 - Tennessee
I've been on both ends of the stick. I've been the bully, and I've been bullied. People at my school don't realize that people change, and aren't willing to give the second chances some people desereve. I want to help the kids who feel like they have no one because that's all I wanted when I was down... was someone to be there and really care and that's what I want to be to someone. It's out of hand the way some kids are feeling about themselves because of other peoples opinions. It has to stop and I don't know what it's going to take for some people to realize it. But I'm going to spend the rest of my life being the voice of the ones whose voices are too shakey to do it on their own.

There is never an excuse for bullying. There is no excuse for anybody at any age to gossip-it makes people feel bad about themselves and I am a victim of gossip and let me tell everyone-it hurts badly. Gossip is bullying and needs to stop.
