I Care Because

I've had a friend who was bullied severely and the pain that she felt is something no one should ever have to go through. It almost resulted in suicide and for someone to experience a feeling that strong is cruel and should not be tolerated.

Bekah, 16, Texas

I've been bullied, about my voice at school, people would always ask 'why do you talk like a baby?' ever since people started asking me that question, I stopped talking to keep them from asking that. I would only talk for class if I had to read something out loud or only talk to my friends, but now everyone asks why I dont talk much. I just dont know what to do or say anymore.

Angela, 12, Colorado

I've been bullied in 6th grade and now going to 7th and I just want to live a normal life in 7th grade but I cant and I want to change schools...I dont fit in, and people turned their backs on me....I wish someone could understand how it hurts.

Kiara, 11, CA

I care because I was bullied when I was little but I don't anymore and I just don't like to see others bullied. The people that stand up to bullies of their own or help out other kids by standing up to their bullies are my kind of people. I want to thank a few people that helped me in elementary school when I was being bullied. If I knew them still I would probably be pretty good friends with them. 

Kyle, 15, Michigan

I care because...  I was bullied for four years. Being bullied leaves scars that no one can repair. Being bullied leaves you vulnerable to the harsh things in this world that can change a person and not always for the better.  My graduation paper/project this year is on bullying and teen depression.  Bulling is serious and anyone who takes it as a joking matter needs to look into the lives of those affected by it.  Stand Up.  Speak out.  The End Of Bullying Begins With Me.
 

Chelsie, 16, Cranberry TWP, PA

Most of the time, I wasn't affected by the bullying until the last time I changed schools. It was so hard for the first year, I didn't want to get up and go to school. I was depressed. 

But I can't do this anymore.
I have to hope that one day my dreams will come true and I will be able to forget all that.

Catherine, 17, I
