It Hurts When You Just Stand And Watch,
When You Don't Do Anything About It Because,
I Hurt I Cry I Run I Hide,
Nothing Seems To Help And I Don't Know Why,
I'm Crying Out For Help And Don't Realize It,
Do You See How This Effected Me...Is It Worth It?
I Want Someone Do Reach Out And Feel My Pain,
Can You Make This Misery Go Away?
Can We Make A Difference And Let It Shine?
Bullying Can Stop If You Do The Right Thing And Try,
I Know It Hurts I Know It Can Be A Lot,
If You Don't Do Anything It Will Be Like A Time Bomb Ready To Pop,
You Can Act Now And Start Hurrying,
Please Stop Bullying.

You Will Feel Better

Posted: 5/13/2011

I have been bullied before. I was the new girl in my middle school (which was many years ago), and for some reason a girl who I never met before decided she wanted to pick on me. What she and some of my other classmates did was a lot emotional bullying. After dealing with it for several months, I reached my breaking point and told my mom about it.

She encouraged me to talk to my teacher to see how I could resolve this problem, and I'm glad I did. For once, I felt powerful over the people who once thought picking on me was "fun" and counted it as a major victory. Cheesy, I know, but that's what it felt like for me. So to the people who are dealing with being bullied, you need to stand up for yourself--NEVER stoop down to the bullies' level. When they tell you "You're stupid", "You'll never be able to do that" or anything that brings down your self-confidence, tell yourself that you are capable of doing anything no matter what they say.

If the bullying gets to a point when you can't take it anymore, please go to talk to a trusted adult for help. Once when you get the help you need, you'll feel so much better about yourself."

A Girl From France

Posted: 5/13/2011

Bullying I suffered for six years and each year has worsened, Were 6 years of playing, horrible names, and were always angry with me, not for a reason, I am Brazilian, but live in France with my mother, even here the jokes have not finish, course, are much smaller, but still, Some days I do not eat because I don't want to be alone in the cafeteria, I've had suicidal thoughts, and already cut myself several times, now I've got used to it, when I'm sad, I listen believe in me multiple times, and cry especially in this part "the mirror can lie...", this song touches me, I love her, she very beautiful, is all I'm feeling, every day before going to school, I write "stay strong" on my wrist, it helps me face the day!

Changing A Life, Can Change Yours

Posted: 5/10/2011

After my parents found out I was joining in with others to bully and they had me talk to my brother my mom sat me down to talk more. She told me I was one of the popular kids and among them I was a natural leader and well respected. She told me that was a powerful place to be and I had the ability to influence my friends in another direction. I knew she was right and I stood up for him, talked to my friends about what we were doing and everything changed for that boy. We are now friends and he is now a part of the "in crowd" with me.

I am pretty sure it changed his life but, I know it changed mine. I've seen the power of influence I have with my friends and know others share the same ability.

More kids need to step up and when we do bullying stops. It's important to be a good role model and that starts at home with parents who pay attention and point you in the right direction not just let you keep being a kid. We don't know what we're doing and sometimes we need the adults to point out we're going about it wrong.

I once asked my mom to call the teacher and have me moved because I was seated next to the kid with a disability who constantly frustrated and distracted me. As I complained she said, "He sounds just like your brother and I believe you already have the skills to deal with that." Then she told me I was a natural leader and I was going to have to learn how to deal with all personality types.

She sat with me to trouble shoot my frustrations offered suggestions and I told her what I thought might work. We focused on the other boys strengths. I am gifted and used my strengths to help him and brought out his strengths. She told me to try these things and if in two weeks things weren't better we could switch seats but, I would have to make this request of the teacher, myself. After two weeks she checked in with me and I told her there was no need to move my seat. He doesn't frustrate me anymore and I now kinda like sitting with him and working with him.

More parents should give good advice and help troubleshoot with their kids before jumping the gun.

Disability Education

Posted: 5/10/2011

I think that there should be more education on disability, the history of disability rights and how people with disabilities have been treated throughout time. I think it will do for me what learning about the history of racism has done for my parents.

My mom talks to me about how she learned more in class about how to treat people of different races than she ever did at home. She compares it to the reaction related to my brother's disability and talks all of the time about how she wishes the schools would include disability history in curriculum because she believes it will teach the same about communication, inclusion, respect and compassion for students with disabilities that racism studies has done for minorities.
