Ethan, 7, Washington State

Simply enough, ive been to six schools. Every single school, ive been bullied...but someone told me a quote one day. Don't give up now, because things will get better. It might be stormy now but it can't rain forever.

Nevaeh , 15, Missouri

My son suffers from anxiety and he IS the bully.  It is part of his defense.  If he bullies others, he gives them the reason not to like him and in his mind, he maintains control of the rejections.   I care because I want to help him stop. He really wants to stop too because he really just wants friends, he is just so scared of rejection.

Michelle, 36, MN

bullying affects peoples lives around the world and no one should feel less about themselves or insecure about themselves. everyone is beautiful and perfect in their own way.

Sara, 17, NY

i once was bullied i dont want no one to feel hopeless like i did i want to help the victims and others.. We all have a story and it needs to be heard. It is not fair to the parents who lost a child because of bullying its not fair to no one we need to stop bullying before its to late for others and our loved ones

brianna , 17, Holden Mo

I hear the pain and despair from students, and know adults that still hurt from things people did or said in school.  I'm a teacher, and every teacher at every school can make a difference in a student's life by standing up to the bullies.  We have to say no to bullying EVERY TIME, EVERY DAY.  Kids who are bullied can't think about Math or Science.  We want students to THRIVE, not just survive one more day.
