I Care Because

i don't want to see others get hurt. i think that it's just stupid to bully anyone, since most people do it out of jealousy. well bullying won't change the fact that you're just someone who doesn't care about others but him/herself. bullying doesn't solve anything at all, but in order for the bullies to know that we all have to unite and stop them together. United we'll never be divided!

Angelica, 14, Mission, Tx

I care because i don't like seeing people down. No one can tell you who you are, what to do and how to be. Everyone is awesome and unique in their own way and that's more than enough.People shouldn't have to hide or feel they should need to be isolated from the world. 

Osasha, 14, Pennsylvania

i have been bullied and i know how much it hurts. My school is horrible about teasing others, its like if you dont fit in then why are you here kind of thing. I am taking a pledge to end bullying

dezmond , 14, rochetster

Roxanne, 45, CA

i think that the kids that is bullying someone just needs a person to talk to becouse you dont know if he or she might be haveing problems at home.

riley, 12, fl

no one should have to feel alone or invisible because people are cruel in school or online. Everyone deserves to have a voice. Bystanders need to stand up for what they KNOW is right. Stand up for the person being unfairly treated because it may end up that you save their life. No one deserves being bullied, so stand together and end it!

Emily, 14, IL
