I Care Because

I  am bullied everyday, and  the sixth grade ( I am in seveth grade now. It was the 2009- 2010 sixth grade year, too.) And even my homeroom teacher bullied me. And some of my friends get bullied too. I am here to make a stand.

My little sister has a learning disability she is bullied on a daily basis. I hurt for her everyday because children with special needs struggle with everyday life and school should be an escape for them. Instead these children are made to feel like crap everyday just because they are a little different than eveyone else, but at the end of the day no matter what we are ALL human beings. Since she has became a high school student I take this bullying issue very seriously and sadly the public schools in Chicago don't. Hopefully some time soon bullying will be something very serious all around the world.

I was verbaly bullied when i was younger i know how words can hurt. I have this big thing about bullying i hate it. I want kids to know that they arent alone and someone does care. I wish that people would do more for bullying bc the more they dont the more teen deaths increases. Its not cool or funny to hurt someone. I hate to see someone get hurt. i know how it feels but i know it will get better just i hope they never give up and show them that you are better than the things they say and do to you. Keep your head and defeat the label

I know exactly how is feels to be bullied and the pain that comes along with it. I had been bullied all the way up until 8th grade which hurt so much. When you hear that you're fat, ugly your nose is big, and everything else like that, you start to believe it. I still suffer with self image issues, but I'm getting better. I will do anything for anybody and I will stick up for people, it's not right at all.

Cara, 16, VA

I to have been bullied by other children. Because of my appearance and my country background. But i do not have to much room to talk because when i was in 4th grade up to 6th grade i always bullied the same girl. I" called her a variety of names i should not of but i guess i got what i was in for. Bullying isnt cool guys it doesnt impress girls or make you seem like a jock. Bullying is a reason for suicide. Imagine if the person you bullied commited suicide to day because of you. You would have to live with that for the rest of your life. So stand up and rise against bullying. And MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR
