I Care Because

I know how bullying can affect you. I know how it can make you feel like you're useless. You are not! Do not let anyone bring you down. <3

bullying is wrong no one should be put down for how they look dress or act it is just wrong this is why for my 20% I will be making a video to prevent bullying!!!!!

Emily, 13, California

No one should feel alone. No one should be sad, mad, hurt , or down on themselves because of the actions of a bully. You RE IMPORTANT AND YOU DO MATTER! Keep your head up. Never forget that there are people who care and are willing to help and listen to your problems. Don't be afraid to reach out for help. I want to make a difference in this world. I want to help people being bullied and picked on. Don't stay quiet if you see someone being bullied. Stand up for them and lend them a hand or go get help... you just might save a life one day doing so.... STOP BULLYING

Antonio Hernandez, 18, Florida

I was bullied a few years ago. The reason for that was that I looked different, I had different style, I thought different.  Sometimes they still pick on me, but now I have learned to tell them something back. I think bullying is something that has to stop. It has to stop now and this is something only we can do. Today at school I saw two guys picking on a girl. I knew what she felt and I had to stop it. So I did. I really hope she feels better knowing that there's someone on her side. 

Kaidi, 15, EE

I might have not been bullied but I have been hurt. Being hurt by my 'bestfriends'. Even if the people who are hurting you happen to be your 'friends' tell someone, cuz they aren't a friend if they do what they do to you. I learned, and I'm healing

Shivani, 13, MA

Bullying just wrecked my life, now I'm always caring about what people say, and I know I'll never be the same. An innocent joke between friends can be the undoing for a teenager. And I just don't want my little brother and cousins go through the same. End to bullying, I beg.
