I Care Because

I REALLY DONT LIKE BULLYING BECAUSE IT NOT RIGHT TO BDO

DARI, 10, WILDER ELAMENTRY

nobody should get bullied. If one of your friends is a bully tell them to please stop bullying for the sake of our youth.

Hunter, 11, Illinois

bullying is something thaat will effect a person for the rest of their lives and has serious consequences. I knew a girl in high school who was consantly bullied. She would tell teachers, but nothing changed. She became depressed as a direct result of bullying and ended up taking her own life. Please don't ever let this happen to someone you know. Bullying is a serious problem and needs to stop!

Jordan, 21, Washington

I care because just imagine yourself in that situation wouldn't you want someone to help. So i care 

Selwyn, 15, Brooklyn,NY

Tell your parents. Tell a teacher. If that doesn't work, then tell a different teacher, tell the principal or tell the counselor. And keep on telling until something gets done to stop the bullying. Don't keep quiet about it.

I was bullied so bad in 5th that I dropped out and was home school'd. It was fun I could wake up whenever and just get up to go to the bathroom and NOT WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE CALLING ME A lESBIEN!! Im not going to lie I became a "vocal" bully in 7th grade to fit in. It worked. But it wasnt worth it. So I stopped and am way more liked this year than last year. DONT BULLY. You dont need an amazing story to know that. Just dont do it. Im with you Demi:) and Thank you....

I was bullied throughout my life AND STILL AM. I hate the feelings of depression I get throughout the day. Sometimes I don't want to go to school because I'm afraid. I care because I know the horrible feeling one gets from getting bullied- and I HATE IT. Why can't people understnag we have feelings :( . Instead of bullying people, STICK UP FOR THEM.
