I Care Because

All throughout highschool I was bullied for different reasons. It affected my confidence and made me hate who I was. I ended up doing cyber school for my senior year because the bullying was too much, I was afraid to go back. My mom has helped me a lot through this and I just take life day by day now, trying to stay positive about the person I am.

my friends as we speak are being cyberbullied by a bunch of guys who are calling them fat and ugly. I care because it isn't right for such beautiful and amazing people to be bullied. 
We had an aseembly at school with a father talking about how his son killed himself from being bullied, and I do not want to see or heear about anyone going through this. We need to raise awarreness

I'm turning Gothic because I think it will make them stop bullying me...Mom doesn't understand about how gthis affects my grades

Unknown, 11, CA

I know how it feels to be bullied. Others think it's not bullying since they don't see me show any negative respond to it. I know it is not easy, especially when the your emotions get involve. You start crying when your alone, and you try to hide it to not make a big fuss out of it. But now, I have learned to stand up for myself. There are still times that I get bullied though.

Jennifer, 18, Philippines

This has happened to me before, I remember when I saw this girl and she saw me and I was her target. I was often called fat by her. I was a bit overweight and it was my weak spot. That's why I  was scared to go to races and anything that could show that I was a bad runner and that I was overweight.  I used to go to school with my stomach  sucked in and I used to run to the bathroom and take deep breathes befor eI held in my stomach. I used to do it soo much that now I  am used to it.  But it never felt good. BULLIES HAVE NO RIGHT, THEY NEVER DO AND THEY NEVER WILL.  Slowly we can help 1 bully at a time to make schools and mre a better place.
