I Care Because

I was always bullied because I was to of the class and won terrific kid 7 years in a row. And then, theres my weight. Not everyone is picture perfect. I have fine self- esteem, except for when I'm  teased. I don't like it; no one does! Ease up on me. I don't starve myself, either.

Jessica, 12, FL

I was bullied. Bullying nearly caused me to take my own life away from home on a class trip to Washington, DC. No one should ever have to feel alone. I didn't have a voice then but I have a voice now and it WILL be heard and it WILL help to prevent bullying.

Kerbie, 15, TX

I know this girl on my bus and people are always bullying her. It's wrong. I want everyone who gets bullied to know that there's always someone waiting to be your friend. 
                                       -It gets better, just takes time.

Cassandra, 17, WA

I know what it feels like to be bullied. It is not a good feeling. When you go home after school, you should feel happy and proud that you had a good day, not go home and cry into your pillow because you were bullied. If you feel pressured, sad, alone, or bullied you should always go and tell an adult right away. or just walk away from the bully and ignore them. It is hard to stand up to a bully or to stand up to someone who is being bullied. But once you learn how to stand up for yourself you won't be able to let anyone stand in the way of you. I say that we put an end to bullying. Who's with me? I want everyone to feel good about themselves because I care.

Ani Meader, 11, San Diego, CA.

Brittney, 11,

I then was sent to a therapeutic boarding school and worked through my past and route cause to my down hill life and it was all because of bullying. I don't want anyone to ever go through what i went through.
