I Care Because ...

Oh my gosh, there are so many reasons. I wasn't really bullied but I saw it happen way too often. ONCE is too often in my view. Anyway, ever since I was in First Grade bullies have made me angry. Not because they were bullying me, it was just because I saw what they did to other kids and it was just not right to treat another human being that way. I decided I was going to do something different and stand up for the victims of these punks.

I also knew that for me to just be mean to them was not what I wanted to do either. A bunch of these bullies were on the baseball team with me. I decided to write a note explaining how much they were hurting these innocent kids with their words and that just because they were popular kids with lots of friends didn't give them the right to hurt others. I taped a letter to every boy on my team's locker. A bunch of them told me they really didn't realize how much hurt they were causing other kids.

What I'm saying here is don't be a bystander.  I beg you to take action and be a hero to a victim of bullying. If you get that feeling you should do something, please do it! Even if you don't feel safe standing up to a bully, saying something to a victim literally might save their life! Be a friend to a kid who desperately needs one.

i feel hopeless 
the sneers
the glares 
keep strong i say
i go to my friends 
they turn away i ask why
they turn back 
only to say 
go away 
i sit down
only to be tourmented
they laugh at me
nothing works 
all  hope is lost

Everyone matters to someone. Whether it is to your family or friends, YOU MATTER! No one deserves to be bullied. Being different doesn't give someone the right to judge you. Nobody knows why you are different and they have no right to judge. Seeing all the bullying on social media makes me not want to have my future kids be in public schools. I hope we can all pull together and change this part of our society.

Since I was 8 years old I was constantly bullied in 4th grade because I was chubby and because the way I looked.  This was just the beginning. All throughout my school years I was spit at,  poked at,  yelled at, isolated, starred at, laughed at,  challenged many times, called names,  and I never seemed to have a friend. I would go home and cry at night.  I am now 19, and have a low self esteem,  am a very quiet and shy person with very little friends.  I am not sociable and can't seem to talk to people because I am afraid they won't like me and make fun of me instead. I tried committing suicide many times but never had the guts.  Bullying effected my life greatly,  I dropped out of school because of bullying.  I just wish that everyone will understand that their words do actually hurt and to think twice before saying or doing something to somebody.

Some might say that bullying is survival of the fittest, that bullying is only words that can cause no physical harm, it is being human, however I beg to differ.  Human?  H-honorable U-understanding M-motivating A-accepting N-nurturing.  This is what human means to me. We no longer live in Medieval, Barbaric times, so why do we act like it?  I am the lead chair for my company's Diversity & Inclusion team and we cover topics like this every month, the reason is not only to educate people but to keep this topic and others like it at the forefront, to keep it fresh in our minds so we may always remember that we are human and what that represents.

Nobody has the right to piont out anyone elses flaws. Just because you have the right of speech does not give you the right to insult someone or hurt someone in any way. It is wrong.

I think bullying needs to stop millions of kids are suffering from this terrible thing. Bullies are just kids who want to overpower others they want to make others feel bad about themselves. But don't let them bully you stand up for your rights and your friends. You are a human being and don't deserve to be treated like this. You are strong and everyone belives in you!!

I've been bullied, sexual harassment, sexual assaulted, name calling, threatened, and abused by mere words. I handled most of it on my own. But not everyone can stand up for themselves, everyone is different, and sometimes it takes a push from a friend to make it all better... Even if you have completely given up on yourself and the rest of the human race. Find something you love, something to live for! It's your life, and you control your destiny! Make it better, those mean things they say about you, are they true? You have power. You have heart. Smile :)

I was never a victim of bullying, but I've seen it happened. It hurts my heart to know that people get picked on for no reason because of the way they look, how they talk, what they wear, etc. If I ever see anyone get picked on, I always be the right person and tell the other person, No that not cool, or nice, and to even leave the person getting pick on alone. People have feelings and no one likes getting left alone. You really got to put yourself in the victim's shoes. Wouldl you like to get treated like that? How would you feel? But overall I'm just totally against bullying & I'm 100% all for the prevention center thing. It truely does make a difference in some peoples lives.

bullying is a mjor problem in our soceity today. I'm sure everyone in life has been bullied at least once. Whether you realize it or not. It made you feel some type of way after it happened. There has been alot of tragic things that have happen because of bullying. People don't understand what others go through in their individual lives and lack an understanding of what it can do. We need to stop and think about what we do sometimes. LETS MAKE A CHANGE!

I was bullied from sixth grade to ninth grade until I finally started homeschooling. I never understood why it was me kids liked to pick on. I don't like seeing other people treated the same way. I care because I was once in that position. It's horrible to wake up each day and have to go to school and be around people that laugh at you. It's horrible to think that you have something wrong with you just because kids at school hate you. Some people are just so brutal. It's really messed up how some kids get joy over making others cry.

Being bullyied is not "part of life". It is something that no one should experience. I know, because I've been bullied too. Luckily, the boy next to me stood up for me. If you see someone being bullied, stand up for them, please. It changed my life and now I am best friends with the boy that sat next to me. Stand up and be brave!

My son was bullied for years until he had given up all hope, and was thinking of harming himself or others. This is unacceptable, our children should not have to endure this pain!

As someone who has been bullied for years in school, I feel that no one deserves to be bullied. However, bullying is already a tradition in my current high school- Grade 11 tends to bully the new underclassmen via extracurricular activities, in which they claimed this bullying method as the preparation for uni life, while actually it makes the grade 10 feel pressured. Me and my friends has started an anti-bullying campaign anonymously and we're now ready to spread the message schoolwide.

When i was in prep (first year at school) I was picked on by other kids because i spoke like an adult. First grade, I was tied up to a fence everyday and was punched repeatedly for being small. Second grade, I was just different. Forth grade, it was uncool to hang out with me. sixth grade, everyone found out I had a crush on the coollest kid in school, he was so embarressed because I liked him. Seventh grade, I was called a dwarf because someone caught me while i was bloated and I'm shorter than everyone else. Now eighth grade, I'm still being made fun of for wanting to be a fiction writer like J.K Rowlings. I feel like no one understands me and it hurts to be judged on how i look, believe, think, even my grades. I feel like the only I will be left alone, is if I'm perfect in EVERY way, but it will never happen...

I know what it's like to be bullied, I understand how hard it can be some days, and I'm able to relate to those who have had it worse than me. My school isn't the best school, the teachers consider it to be a good atmosphere for kids like me, but it's not. Kids pick on the other kids constantly, people get pushed into lockers, kids get tripped in the halls, and you can hear laughter directed at someone wherever you go, all while the teachers are standing only a few feet away. So even though my school isn't the greatest it only makes me more motivated to make a difference, I care because bullying is one thing I just can't tolerate.

Maddy - 15 - ND

I was bullied when I was in my gradeschool, boys and even girls pick on me. I never really had a friend and all i did back then was just cry & take all the insults in. Until I reached my highschool, I started to get myself altogether , i did become confident but in a bad way where I became a bully myself & did bully someone. when I reached my 2nd yr of HS, I decided to change, repent of what I did. and then I started to help those other teens at my school against those who bully them (it's like good bully vs bad bully). I was happy that i could help and now that I am in college finishing a degree I will never stop & try to help those who are in need.

I was bulllied a lot when I was younger and I still have friends that are being bullied. Some of them don't even laugh or smile anymore because of the hurt they feel. It kills me that other people go through it as well and if there was a way to end bullying for good, I would go for it whole-heartedly. We have an anti-bullying Campaign at school,which i am in but people don't take us seriously and children are too afriad to come to us. I want to put an end to all this heartache.
