Victimized

Posted: 11/22/2011

Imagine waking up and you’re the target they want
Imagine walking into a black hole you once called school
Imagine thinking the reasons behind the words that were said to haunt
Imagine the black hole entering your home, now it’s not right

Imagine being pushed into a locker filled with hatred and shame
Imagine doors that use to keep you safe suddenly shut
Imagine what life would be like without tormentors gaining fame
Imagine that your knife for food is now being used to cut

Imagine what life would be like with no emotions
Imagine walking in the dark with no light in sight because your head is put down
Imagine life crashing down; each time hitting new obstacles causing more commotion
Imagine people asking where your smile is because all you can show is a frown

Imagine the only light you notice is in the clouds
Imagine not having the strength to speak your voice
Imagine thinking leaving the world will make people proud
Imagine cowards wanting you to make this choice

Imagine putting yourself in the shoes of a person who has been through this
Imagine being a parent and knowing your child only thought peace was available through death
Imagine being a bystander and speaking up was an opportunity you missed
Imagine what this world would be like if these kids didn't take their last breath.

Report with Courage

Posted: 11/7/2011

My name is Katie, and I was a target of bullying all of my life except for my Senior year this year.

It had gone from "You're a Geek!" to "Hey Katie wanna go out with me?" And then after a few days the boy "Broke up" with me and then bullied me. From then on it went to two girls in my math class. I asked to use the restroom and the blonde girl yelled across the room "Why does SHE get to go? She's a ________!" and when i went to the restroom, and I stayed in the restroom for a few more minutes and cried until one of the teachers came and asked me whats wrong. I told her my story and she told the special ed teacher to bring me down to the office and tell the principal about the bullying going on in class.

And the Principal talked to the Main principal about the bullying and they both said that they would take care of it. And one of my friends brought my things down to the office and said "Katie, the main teacher didn't write a white card but the hearing aide teacher did, I hope you have a good rest of the day."

This year the bullying stopped because I kept on reporting without being afraid.

Do What I did. Report the bullying with courage!

Finding Myself

Posted: 11/7/2011

I was in 6th grade. People would write things on the bathroom walls about me. I saw a note on the ground in from of my locker saying "nobody wants you alive". I was scared. I started cutting myself and I started barely eating anything. On the bus all the seats would be filled up except the one next to me. The bus driver would say "sit with her" and he would say "I would never sit with that"

People told me to die and one time I thought about running away. I packed my stuff together but I couldn't do it, I would stay loyal to my family. It stopped for a while but got worse in 7th grade when i transferred to a different school. I got pushed down the stairs and shoved in the halls. I would see comments on the internet about how ugly and fat i was. And that was when it hit me.

I started getting into a depression and i never came out of my room. One day at school i was thinking bout hurting myself when i would get home that evening and a  girl came up to me and said hi. No one had really talked to me in almost 3 months and that one word, HI, it stopped me from everything - the pain, the dread, the worries, everything.

We are friends to this day.

Don't be a bystander, because it happens to everyone.

What if it was you?

Just Like All the Other Kids Do

Posted: 11/4/2011

My name is Ryan and I have been a target for the past year of bullying. 

I started high school and was mistaken for another kid and attacked by two seniors. 

They were charged in court but the school administration did nothing, after I was attacked these two boys and their friends bullyed me for another 5 months. My mom and I continued to report it, but they did nothing. In fact the boys that bullyed melaughed at me and said "no one gives a ___ about you, they don't care ____."

Now we don't report it anymore because it causes more trouble than good.  Those two boys graduated but they still have friends at the school and it has gotten so bad that I am quitting school. I have had alot of suicidal thoughts. My family and myself decided after almost a year of this I should just quit. 

We plead with the County Board of Education to allow me to move to another school and they continually turned us down even with three doctors recommendations that I should be moved out of the school. They still said no.

I really do not want to have to quit school. I want to go to school and have friends and work on projects, go to football games,the prom just like all other kids do. But, I guess I just can do that stuff.  I am completely mentally broken at this point and can not take it anymore

I feel like I am about to snap on someone at that school and I need to remove myself from this situation before I get in trouble.  The biggest problem I have had is the administration at the school. They are just as bad, if not worse than the kids who bully me.
