I Care Because

bullying is never, EVER acceptable. I came to a point where people would constantly call me fat in school, and even my family at home. I became bulimic and have been for 5 months now. I just want everyone to know that simple words can hurt people and affect their lives drastically. Bullying and teasing has to stop.

alyson, 14, malaysia

I have been bullied for 2 years and all this year. My parents always hollard telling me to fight but that would make things worse.  I was always myself and now i cant be im not my self cause i get picked on. They call me fat and ugly, stup'id, whore and so on. I come home crying not wanting to go to school and my p'arents never listen to me. I wanted to take my life. I didn't eat at all i was always depressed. I dont want someone else having to feel that way its horriabl'e. i cry my self to sleep every night. Bull'ying needs to stop'. i care cause its risking kids life hurting kids.

I care because I don't want people to get hurt!

Will, 17,

I think bulling is wrong in any school, no matter who  you  are  or what you look like. Because teens from all over are getting tired of being picked on, called names, being made fun of, their just tired of it. And there's gotta be a way to prevent it from going further.

marisa martin, 22, Oh

I have been there. I care because I have seen my friends there. I care because I have seen strangers there. It is not a place that I want to be. No one should be there. No one deserves that. 

Jessie, 18, NJ

I am a girl!!!!! I had this friend who was really nice and we were in a group of friends of  6 to 10 people. Then my friend started acting like jerk to the group and me. we stopped being friends. we eve told the principle and teacher. She stopped because she knew we had the power to destroy bullying and we got her suspened. I knoe it was right thing to do because people were getting hurt and I wanted to put a stop to it!! Thanks Demi for trying to stop bullying. If we stick up to bullies we may stop bullying.
