I Care Because

I have been bullied because my love for anime is "too extreme". People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgements of "normies". Thanks to PACER's, I have been able to feel accepted.

As an ongoing bullying victim no one should have to suffer like I do.  I have a hearing problem and people hate me for it. But bullying victims out there like me you are not alone and justice will come for you one day.

If you are being bullied please talk with someone, isn't your fault you don't have to be ashamed or, if you know someone that is being bullied please be kind with him and being his friend. That's will help a lot.

Maria, 16, Italy

it just really hurts that you can't be who you wanna be simply because of the fear of getting bullied and left alone.

Patrick, 18, Philippines

I was bullied by words and physically beat up, and I didnt have anyone to turn to. For anyone else who this happens to, please get help! Dont hide!

i get made fun of alot because im short. everyone trys to take advantage of me being small. i think im perfect the way i am and no one can change that.

Catheryn, 11, NY

I know people who were bullied. My close friend attempted suicide because she as bullied. Innocent people are getting hurt everyday, and for what reason? The satisfaction of the bully. Why should I let someone suffer when I know I can help stop their suffering? Why do I have to be bullied to do something? Why should I let others control my judgement? The answer is, I shouldn't. So I am going to be the change I want to see in the world.

Tazz, 13, NY

people who have been bullied deserve respect we should all come together and prevent bullying
