I Care Because

I've been bullied for several years. Infact I still am, and it's just not verbally, but also on the internet. Words DO hurt. I've been bullied for my size, they way I look, and just being diffrent. Pledgeing can make a diffrence even though it may not seem like it, but it does. Stand up for yourself. Understand that everyone is not gonna be your friend, so you don't need everyone to make your life happy.  Smile, cause your diffrent. and being diffrent is what makes a person a better person!

A lot of times the ones being bullied end the bulling in their own matters by unfortente events. But I think people need to be aware of ALL the effects of bullying. People need to be aware that one little spark can cause a major combustion. I will admit that I was probably the one doing the bullying in the "not hurtful" way...BUT I WAS WRONG and there is NO such thing as "not hurtful" bullying. And because I became aware of the effects bullying could do I stopped. I am thankful in so many ways that I have never known (personally) a person that has experienced any effect of bullying. And I am very sorry I ever did anything to hurt anyone. I AM AGAINST BULLYING!

I care and want to help because bullying can bring someone to their lowest low, and I don't want anyone to ever feel the way I used to.
