I Care Because

I know the feeling of being cut down by the things you're most self concious of and wishing your teacher wouldn't turn they're head the other way. The feeling of being taunted because your small and easy to intimidate. To have nasty rumors spread causing friends question you. Bullying is relentless and I'm lucky to have had a few friends who knew me and backed me up to helped end my bully's attempts to ruin me. Bullying effects so many people's lives and I'm happy to be a single voice of many against bullying.

My son will start kindergarten next year, and I do not want him or any child to be subjected to the same kind of misery I went through as a target of bullying.  Changing the bully-or-be-bullied mentality will make our schools safer, our children happier, and us parents less worried.

I am a girl!!!!! I had this friend who was really nice and we were in a group of friends of  6 to 10 people. Then my friend started acting like jerk to the group and me. we stopped being friends. we eve told the principle and teacher. She stopped because she knew we had the power to destroy bullying and we got her suspened. I knoe it was right thing to do because people were getting hurt and I wanted to put a stop to it!! Thanks Demi for trying to stop bullying. If we stick up to bullies we may stop bullying.

I was a cheerleader in high school. It was my best friend who bullied me. She turned all of my friends along with everyone else against me. I would walk down the hallway with them shouting things at me. They made up lies. I wanted to die. I hated life. I couldn't see tomorrow. I eventually told my mom. She got me a counselor. It helped, a little. I now am here six months after the bullying started because I was strong and I had my mom by my side the whole time. I started high school being popular with tons of friends. I ended the school year with one friend. I am strong and no one should have that power over me.

It's part of my "job" as an UPSTANDER and ABC Reader for the Project Cornerstone Program. It would be a marvelous world if there was no bully behavior, but that's not a reality, so I am educating our students on how to resist, react to and refuse bully behavior.  I am an "Asset Building Champion" & a "Caring Adult." I am providing students a "common language" that they can use to stand up for themselves & others. We are teaching that each child is valuable, that tolerance of others is required and that sometimes all it takes is ONE person to do the right thing.
