I Care Because

 I strongly feel that no one should be physically, verbally, and/or emotionally hurt. I think that a lot of kids have problems at home and school, and it makes them feel the need to put down others. But none of that makes it ok to treat someone else in a negative way. I think that the more everyone realizes that they matter and they are special, and that they have someone to open up to, it'll help stop bullying.

It is just mest up to be mean or rude to some one even if its the truth.
I see it ever day and I do stop when and if I can. High school can be hard telling older kids to stop, but its the right thing to do.And it makes you a good person and people will like you more,

I think all students deserve a fair chance at an education.

I have been bullied since Pre School and I am now in 2nd grade. I am the 2009 Minnesota You Can Do It Princess, it was a pageant for girls ages 5-24 who have special needs or challenges. I do not want any more kids to have to be picked on for any reason. Let's take a stand as one to stop this from happening to other kids!

I care because...  I was bullied for four years. Being bullied leaves scars that no one can repair. Being bullied leaves you vulnerable to the harsh things in this world that can change a person and not always for the better.  My graduation paper/project this year is on bullying and teen depression.  Bulling is serious and anyone who takes it as a joking matter needs to look into the lives of those affected by it.  Stand Up.  Speak out.  The End Of Bullying Begins With Me.

I've been bullied too. It's not so fun being called names, pushed around, or anything like that, I care because I believe that we as a world can come together to prevent bullying from happening. Bullying is a very serious cause and causes much, much damage on the victim's life. I care becuase I too was bullied. Therefore, we need to stick together and be nice to one another. If you're the bully, take a walk in your victim's shoe and see how it feels to them. Why do succh a thing to an innocent person? Thank you for reading. I really needed to get this off my chest.
