I Care Because

These kids who are bullying are our future. Someday -- soon -- they will be leading this world and have more power than they should. Can you imagine what the world will be like once these kids have all the power they want? I am against bullying because it is a greater problem than anyone believes. We need to step up and get to the root of the problem and fix it. Because if we can't do it, then who can?

I care because I used to be bullied all the time from 3-5 grade. in 6th grade I started a club to prevent bullying. I know what it is like being bullied.

My first experience with bullying was with a close friend of mine in elementary school. I became very sensitive about this subject because I saw at such a young age how much damage it could do to someone. I tried to support my friend but eventually her parents transferred her out of the school. As I got older I knew i then needed to make a difference. Bullying is just wrong. We can all make a difference by getting involved to prevent bullying

Kylie, 17, New York

I do get bullied and it's wrong to bully people just because they're different and they're expressing themselves and being themselves. People need to tolerate others better.

Abbey, 14, CT

Bullying can ruin someone else.One person can impact on someone else positive or negative.I want to try to make that impact positive. One smile, one compliment, one kind word can make someone's day.

Taya, 16, CT

Alot of things have happened to me that are going on to others and I'm not happy about it. HELP STAND AGAINST THE BULLIES. STAND FOR THE SMALLER KIDS AND HELP THEM REGAIN CONFIDINCE!!!! NO ONE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN.

Ashlynn, 13, Conroe, Texas

This is to anyone who's ever felt bullied. Please don't worry about who loves you and who doesn't. The best thing you can do is to love yourself. Loving your self is one of the greatest things in life. Once you do that you will find your self happier. Don't worry if you are different from anyone else. Just think of your self as unique and one of a kind which is priceless. Don't worry about being black, white, yellow, brown, straight, gay, bi, etc. No one came into this world with a label, so why go thru life with a label. We all are one of a kind so live your life the way you see fit. You owe your life to no one but yourself. Free yourself to be yourself. Life is too short so be happy and love yourself.
