I Care Because

I care because I used to be a bully in elementary and I seen how I changed those people's life. In middle school I was normal and did not bully anyone. In high school I was bullied, a lot. I was confused why anyone would want to be mean to me when I was always so nice. The person I bullied the most is now my best friend. DONT BULLY

My Bestfriend has been bulied her whole life. No one likes her because she's different but I love her for the reason of her being different. Everyone would act like she didn't exist and just scream at her and push her punch her and all. I put a stop to it I threatened everyone by telling them i'd go to the prinicipal.They all stopped and let her be the way she is. I find her an amazing friend no matter what!

People should not be bullied because of how they look or what they like, they are the same people as you so people should stop bulling and be friends to each other so if your reading this lets stop bulling together.

I totally care because i am constantly bullied and i feel that it is not right for people to be judged for who they are. Plus half the people that i know who are bullied, their bullies do not even know them personally. I feel like people believe that they can make fun of anyone or anything just because they can and it{s not right! It needs to stop right now, because people seen to commit suicide more and more because of bullying and over 160,000 people stay home from school each day because they are feared of being bullied and it{s outrageous!!!! Though most people don{t see it as bullying and harassment, it is. I just wish our world had better pride about themselves and others that way there is no need for bullying.
