I Care Because

When I was in 3rd grade, I used to get bullied and jumped by a bunch of kids a grade or two under me, there was like 20 of them.I was afraid for a while, but then I decided to get some kids to stick up for me, and I started taking self-defense classes.It still has a drastic effect on me today and my personality has totally changed since it happened. I now care extremely what people think of me. I wish no one ever has to go through this.

Im a victim of bullying too.Its no fun and no joke.Getting teased, getting your stuff taken, and other people ganging up on you just to hurt you hurts, deeply. You feel like you cant do anything you look down on yourself.You feel alone and scared. But dont look down on yourself look up. Things will start to get better, yes it hurts to be made fun of and yes it hurts to be ignored or tortured, but you only have to deal with them through school. Once your outta school the bullying will be over and you can enjoy your life! And if the bullying gets beyond control tell an adult or smoeone and get help. Hope this helps someone! Love you all!!!

I care because I have 3 children & I don't ever want them to be bullied or bully anyone. As a parent I cannot stress enough the fact that all parents need to teach their children to be kind to one and other. Teach them that everyone is different and that is okay!!

How come whenever I turn on the news, I see a autistic person being bullied? Why them? They're not any different then us? Just because they have autism? Seriously, people, you can do much better, by NOT BULLYING!!!!!!! 
If you think about it, we're almost all the same! And what we're different, we have to be tolerant about!
(Tolerance means that you accept people for who they are)
