I Care Because

I never got bullied but i think it's horrible that children all around the country get bullying. children who do this must stop!!!because nobody deserves to get bulying and i am so sorry for people who get it.

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!!

    I care because I have been bullied in the past. I still go to school with the girls it's not as bad as it was because I told on them but it still hurts to look at them because the memories really hurt. The bullying got so bad at one point that I started hating myself and that led me to start doing bad habits and that just made it all worse. I felt like no one cared when in reality people did care. Bullying is a close subject to my heart because I know how it feels and its not easy. No One deserves to be bullied! Thats why we (this generation needs to make a change!) I believe we can do it if we work together. '')

jhane, 11, waldorf,MD

I was diagnosed with partial deafness aged 5 and the kids in my school then used to pick on me because of it. I had to be taken from the local school and sent to a school further away to prevent this. At the time, it made me feel like I was worthless and that because of my disability I couldn't be as good as the other children. Since moving away from the local school, I've learned that this is not the case.
