"Sticks and Stones May break my bones......." words can hurt a whole lot more than actions. I heard a story about a guy that was so depressed from bullying and was planning suicide, but someone he hadnt seen or talked to for years stopped by one night and talked to him. He had felt worthless, hated, and just so torn down that he didnt want to be alive. But when that one person came and visited him, he changed his views completely and is alive. This story shows that even the smallest things you do can prevent or even stop bullying. Stand up for others when they need you. Because just by smiling or saying hello when you walk by can save someones life when they are being bullied. Think about how you're hurting someone before you laugh or criticize that "dorky" kid or the "loser" who has no friends. I am against bullying.

I was the short kid with glasses in superficial, look oriented southern California.  I attended a Christian school from kindergarten to my senior year in high school and learned that it doesn't matter what type of school you receive your edcation from, if you are different, kids will target you!  My experiences still haunt me to this day, mostly they arise when I read or hear a story about soemone killing themselves due to relentless, needless bullying.

I will say that it does get better after high school; so, if you are getting bullied right now, there is hope.  Please, don't do anything drastic!  Those bullies really aren't worth hurting yourself over.  They are just as insecure as you are, believe it or not!  If they don't change their behavior, they will end up losing at life....guaranteed!  So, embrace who you are and your differences!  They are something to be proud of!  If you see a classmate or soemone you don't know in school being bullied, please don't ignore them! Just ignoring them, as so often happens, makes them think they deserve it and they don't! They are hurting and could use someone to talk to.  You could make a huge difference in their lives, you may even save a life!

My name is Angelica. My best friends name is Ashley Gomez. I am her only friend. She is suffering for Ceberal Palsey and can not Walk, her left arm is deformed. She has been bullied her whole life. I am her first reak friend. She is actually 20 years old. I am 13. Its very sad. She may never marry, she may never have kids, These are serisous possibilities that come to her mind everyday. She cries herself to sleep every night. Ashley Gomez, I love you. I will always be here for you <3 And Anyone else who need me, Im here No matter what!! I love you all!! Im trying my best to stop bullying!! I too left public school to be homeschooled. I am homeschooled through connections academy, where I have met other students who have the same problem as me. I was not bullied. But I watched it happen everyday. I tried my best to stop it. Nothing worked. I was sick of listening to all of the harsh horrible things people said. So I left school. I now go to school to school giving speeches. I love you all <3

I am a substitute teacher in middle and high schools, and I see almost daily the terrible toll that bullying and taunting can take. I have seen kids become targets because poverty or homelessness caused them to dress unfashionably or bathe less often than they would like; Asperger's syndrome or some other behavioral disability caused them to act differently; they were gay or simply perceived as being gay; they had speech impediments or spoke English as a second language; because bad home lives or traumatic events had caused them to withdraw or act out in anger. Usually, the students being bullied already feel "different", like outsiders looking in on a world they would like to be accepted as a part of. The taunting and bullying and hurtful actions -that might just anger an average student who has many of the developmental assets needed in life -are so much MORE damaging to students already wrestling with these other issues in their lives. All kids have the potential to learn, grow, develop relationships, and become successful in their own way; but I have seen that potential squashed by thoughtless, ignorant comments and petty, hateful students who want to feel "superior".

Many people sufffer from bullying daily and there is always a bystander who choses not to say a thing to the teacher or an adult. The victim is hurt more not by the bully but by the bystander. But once in every ten teens there is a bystander that will tell a teacher and save a person from death and bullying. I even suffered from it at a very young age by a classmate and her sister. My brother who is 11 years older than I said nothing to my mom and he saw it everyday. I finally stepped up and told her. Now whenever I see bullying I stop it. I  hope you agree with this last sentence. I WANT TO BE THE ONE IN TEN TEENS TO SAVE MANY PEOPLE FROM BULLYING AND I HOPE YOU DO TO!

Most people think that when you are bullied it means physically and that it happens mostly at school. This isn't the case. I was bullied for 8 years. 4 years during my high school years and for 4 years over the internet. It was the bullying I endured over the internet that had the biggest impact on my life. This woman was 10 years older than I was, nearly 30. I didn't understand why she bullied me and I still don't know to this day why she chose me as her victim. It took me 3 years to finally go to my parents and talk to them about it but once I did it helped me find the strength I needed to stand up and say "I will no longer let you treat me like this" 

To everyone being bullied out there in the world. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Please talk to someone whether it be your parents, friends or even someone over the internet you are close to. There is always someone who is willing to listen :) Remember you are loved by the people that matter and don't let these people get you down.

I have been bullied since elementary school. Because I was younger, didn't have any friends and felt lonely. At elementary school I didn't care. But when I went to secondary school, it became a problem. I didn't said anything and I still am very emotional. So it was easy to pick on me. I told adult about it so many times. But it happened so many times that they wouldn't believe me. They thought that I was appointing. Because the boys fought with words. I never wanted to do anything back, 'cause I was in love with a boy in the same class. And I always wanted everyone to like me. Now I see it is impossible...  But then I thought I was being realistic. Because of the bullying I became even more quiet, scared, emotional. I even wanted to commit suicide. I didn't dare to... Eventually, after two years of bullying in secondary school, I went to an other class. One of my two friends had exactly the same problem... So we went to the same class ad the bullying became less and then it stopped. Nowadays I still don't like to work/talk with the bullies, but someitmes I have to. I still get negative comments but I now I know better how I to deal with it.

Im a victim of bullying too.Its no fun and no joke.Getting teased, getting your stuff taken, and other people ganging up on you just to hurt you hurts, deeply. You feel like you cant do anything you look down on yourself.You feel alone and scared. But dont look down on yourself look up. Things will start to get better, yes it hurts to be made fun of and yes it hurts to be ignored or tortured, but you only have to deal with them through school. Once your outta school the bullying will be over and you can enjoy your life! And if the bullying gets beyond control tell an adult or smoeone and get help. Hope this helps someone! Love you all!!!

people dont understand how bad bulliying affects people whether if your the target or the bystander watching the bullying. personaly i have been in the postion of getting bullied and yes it does hurt but that doesnt give people a right to make someones life miserable just because they dont like them or they have something that someone else dosent have. no ones life is better than someone elses. stand up against it and do something and if YOUR doing the bullying then stop doing it!!!!

In high school, it is so vicious; jungle-like at times. Everyone needs someone to talk to when they are being bullied.

I am a victim as well as others. I have had a horrible time in  school and on the internet. I been called pregnant when I only weigh under 90lbs and don't even have a big stomach. I also have been called a W****. I have been called an alien, to short, u r stupid, or to skinny. It has hurt so bad before I have gone into a depression so big I almost had to take medication. I feel horrible for all the kids who just get bullied any way, shape or form. It is not fun and I am on your side.

I just read everyone's posts and I want things to get better for not just all of ya but all the other kids and teens that get bullied. I don't remember ever getting bullied, but I did reach a point where I would skip one of my classes because one guy was making it hard for me to be comfortable to express myself. I'm lucky nothing as bad as what I've read has happened to me. Reading these posts, I also remember my senior year one of the freshmen, who I never spoke to but I sort of knew, was all of a sudden angry and red and crying. These two guys were laughing after they had bullied him. I didn't see the whole thing, but thats no excuse to not do something about it. I still feel horrible for not standing up for him, I'm never going to standby and let a kid, teen, or anyone get bullied ever again.

  People always think thats it's not a big deal to be bullied. That everyone goes through it and it's just a part of life. They don't think about how much the words they say or the actions they do may hurt someone. I've been in the position where I've just wanted to give up because I felt like no one in the world wanted me. I still feel like that sometimes. No matter what people say, being bullied is a huge problem, especially if you're a teenager. No one likes to feel like that.
  If people stopped and thought about what they said for once and thought over how their next words or actions may effect someone, then maybe we wouldn't have bullying. But people don't, so it's here. But enough is enough. Let's stop bullying right here, right now. It's time for it to end.

A lot of people bully me
for being...
not cool,
not pretty,
not popular,
i agree with them.
i'm NOT cool.
NOT pretty.
NOT popular.
but i'm ok with that, because i have friends who love me. They say "Why try and fit in?" well i'm done with bullying, we need to put a stop to it, my close friend almost went ahead with suicide because of it. my friend maria said "nobody should endure this, because its our faults, and our quirks, that make us strong.<3" and i agree with her. Stop bullying, for the future of everyone, who'd want to grow up in a world like that anyways?.

bullying made me ashamed of who i am and my parents people made fun of my parents divorse and what my father did and i am now not ahamed of it because i decided to many people in my school used to bully me about it why should i put my self down.

Bullying is horrible. Noone should have to go through it. I was getting bullied really bad last week and it got that bad that I had to go and tell the principal's about it. Verbal bullying and cyber bullying can hurt as much as physical bullying and I don't think that the bullies out there understand that. Bullying is never a joke. It's a serious matter. It ruins lifes. Everyone needs to learn that so we can all live in peace on day. Let's try and stop bullying! The end of bullying begins with all of us. xx

My lil brother gets bullied. he is only 11 years old. weve had to get extra help with him because it got so bad. the lord didnt plan for us to treat each other with such harsh actions. My lil brother ended up having suicide letters in this journal i found in his room. 11 years old and he is already thinking bout that. that means bullying needs to come to a stop cuz its messing with LIFES. One day we will overcome bullying and live harmony with one another. My little brother means the world to me so lets all stand up for the rest of the kids that get picked on. if you witness bullying take action and do something before our youth crumbles before our eyes because as i see in the eyes of these kids that get bullied aroung i can see the hurt and pain beneath their skin all because of a few words that someone said to them. it sick and its wrong so lets do something about it.

Bullying is so cruel. Its hurts feelings. Bullying can also make people loose focus in school. It is not something to do for fun or on a dare. If someone says so or u hear it being spoken don't just hide or be a part of it confess. It is a way to stop and prevent bullying.

I've been bullied, and it hurts. When I was at Washington I went to this new school and the kids started pushing me around, calling me names and running away from me.  I've heard people saying that "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me," They do :(
I was always the last to be picked in teams and nobody wanted to sit next to me or even be in a gruop with me. I had a LOT of bruises that time as my classmates pushed my and hurt me.
I remember I was running to class when a boy tripped me over and my leg twisted, and then I fainted. When I woke up I was at the hospital with a cast on my leg and my mother was there and told me that my leg was broken.
My parents got me homeschooled as they thought that the other kids would damage my leg more.
I got homeschooled for 2 years until I moved to Texas,
I got to a new school and always hid my face as I thought that they would call me names, but then a girl came up to me and asked if I could hang out with her,
I now know that bullying isn't nice at all, it's cruel.
Bullying should stop, it hurts people's feelings.
We should stand up.

I wanna thank Demi Lovato and Teens Against Bullying.org for helping me.
Thank you

bullying is unacceptable because it can cause a lot of trouble.It can affect the way people learn or the way they act.It can hurt people's feelings.KIds should learn how to make peace and be nce to each other.By doing this it will mae our school and community a better place.This is why I care

I WAS BULLIED IN FIRST AND SECOND GRADE. FOR STUPID LITTLE REASONS, LIKE NOT BEING ABLE TO PORNOUSE THE WORDS WONDER WOMAN. AFTER THAT, I BECAME A BULLY. THE TRUTH IS, BULLIES MAKE BULLIES. IN THIRD GRADE, I STARTED SWEARING AT THE KIDS WHO MADE FUN OF ME WHICH ONLY MADE IT WORSE. IN FOURTH GRADE I MADE FUN OF THIS KID WITH MY "FRIENDS" BECAUSE OF STUPID REASONS SO SMALL, I DONT EVEN REMEMBER. AND IN FIFTH GRADE, I FINALLY BROKE DOWN ONE NIGHT AND TOLD MY MOM WHAT HAPPEND AND THAT I SWORE AND ALL THAT. I WASNT A BULLY ANYMORE IN FIFTH GRADE. BUT IN SIXTH GRADE, ME AND MY FRIENDS BULLIED THIS ONE GIRL BECAUSE SHE ALWAYS ANNOYED US. WHEN I LOOK BACK AT IT, SHE WAS ONLY TRYING TO MAKE FRIENDS. MY ONE FRIEND TOLD ME SHE HEARD THAT THE GIRL CRIED EVERYDAY BECAUSE SHE DIDNT HAVE ANY FRIENDS, WHICH SHE HEARD FROM HER PARENTS TALKING TO THE GIRLS PARENTS. SO, I TOLD MYSELF I WILL NOT BULLY ANYMORE. BUT THE TRUTH IS- BULLIES MAKE NEW BULLIES. AND ONCE YOUR A BULLY, YOU CAN NEVER GET THAT NAME TAKEN AWAY. SOME PEOPLE MAKE IT A LIFES CHOICE TO BULLY. BUT NOW IN 7TH GRADE, I WONT. I WILL DEFEND MYSELF, BUT I WILL NEVER AGAIN BE A BULLY- I PROMISE.
