I Care Because

I was bullied last year when i was in the 6th grade. and i don't think its far just because you are different than some people doesn't like you. that doesn't  mean you aren't cool it just means u are unique and special and if there are any people that are out there that bully you just think through your mind that they are just julous of you and that u are yourself and only yourself and nobody can change you. you just have to stick out and believe in yourself. because there are some people out there that are like you and do believe in you. because i might not know who you are but i do believe in every single living creature.

Sometimes I find my friend being bullied because of what she likes or dislikes. I can see how much it hurts her and it isn't ok. I try to stand up to the bullies and now we have a non-bullying club that some kids in our neighborhood go to. I also know what it feels like to go through it, and it isn't anything that anyone ever appreciates.

Ashley, 13, Texas

i am in middle school which IS the toughest section of a girl (or boy's) life i was bullied last year by my OWN so called friends. they don't know how much it hurts. i stand up for the kids being bullied! who knows maybe you have just made them decide not to kill themselves i am  still praying not to be bullied this year. crossing fingers!

I care because, when I  was in kindergraten and grade 1 I was bullied all the time. And they did nothing! I mean it was horrible the girl that bullied me called me fat and stuff! And you would go to the teacher with somthing like bullying they sayed" well it'll get better " .But even when she was bullying me i guess i didn't care because i knew it wasn't true. So after when my parents broke up,  I moved. I haven't seen her since but now I  guess there was no point in bullying me cause she got no reaction out of it. now im in the best  middle school  ever, with some of the best freinds i've ever had!!!  

Franny P, 11, Canada, N.B.

Every day l look around and see people getting teased just beacuse what their wearing and how they look. There are some days that I don't even wanna go to school  beacuse I rather avoid all this drama!! Sometimes I fell like every ones the same like we all have to act like one another just beacuse were afraid that people will tese us beacuse were different. In my school u can never be yourself people think that being vain is a good thing but it's not beacuse the real beauty is in the inside so if u are one of those people who care more about vanity than anyone else the truth is you're not so "beautiful" afther all.The real beautiful people in this world are people who don't pay attention to what they wear. All they care about is the kinda person they are
