I Care Because

I care about ending bullying because I don't want other adults or other kids to suffer. I want no one to feel lonely. I don't want other people to feel sad. I don't want anyone to ever feel so bad that they would hurt themselves.

i have been bullied and i know how much it hurts. My school is horrible about teasing others, its like if you dont fit in then why are you here kind of thing. I am taking a pledge to end bullying

Chela, 17, wv

I care because I went through it in Middle and some in Highschool. I care because I saw people stand on the sidelines some laughing some just staying quiet. I care because I want to help others and not let them go through the pain and tourment I went through. I care because no one deservise to go through that. I care because you are worth it. I care because I can gladly say that it will get better. My life has made a turn for the better. Why? Because I did not stand on the side lines and watch someone bully others I stepped in and helped causing a chain reaction for them to get the courage to help somone else. I care because you can make a diffrence. :)

Hello there! Bullying is a horrible thing and it drives me crazy that kids do that. Just because someone is different doesn't mean they aren't a good person. Stand up to bullying and be an active bystander!

Every name that a kid has been called has lead them more and more into depression.

Alyssa, 13, Wisconsin

Bullying is the worst thing that could happen to you when your new at school or you do something that doesn't make someone take you seriously. Don't listen to anyone one who says your different. Being different is called being unique or special in your own way. To overcome this you have to be proud and brave everyday!!!

No one deserves to be bullied, we are meant to be loved and adored.
