I Care Because

I used to be bullied. I was bullied ever since i was seven. It hurts a lot. I know how you guys feel. 

Lizzie, 16, SC

I might have not been bullied but I have been hurt. Being hurt by my 'bestfriends'. Even if the people who are hurting you happen to be your 'friends' tell someone, cuz they aren't a friend if they do what they do to you. I learned, and I'm healing

Shivani, 13, MA

In class we're learning a lot about bullying and you hear all these stories and think 'wow this really is happening to kids like me!' we're putting together a bully awareness presentation and we're making a video. I hope it helps others realize that putting others down doesn't make you better, it just changes people's view of you, normally for the worse.

If you know someone who is being bullied reach out to them, take action. Tell them to talk with someone that can help! It's amazing how much a few friends can help. 

Grace, 15, FL

I care because kids all around the world are getting bullied and no one wants to help out.

Alexia, 15, New Jersey

One of my friends used to get bullied and i saw how much it crushed htem so me and my friends helped them to report it and if we didn't have these websites then she would still be stugling now. They're a real help!!!

Melissa, 13, England

I think bullying matters because alot of kids think it is funny to hurt others but it does not just hurt others it can cause alot more then that! If we can all work together bullying can end!

i  am a  bully im trying to change it but it is hard cause my frieds are commming mad at me and there lik popular and man so i am going to find new friends

julynn, 12, ia

Kids used to bully me when I was young. They used to say I wasnt pretty or I was to fat. Girls used to make fun of my hair, becuase I have natural curls they said I had a wig. Then I learned they were just jealous because they didnt have what I have. Dont let anyone take away your joy, keep your head up everything gets better.  

Isaliz, 17, Chicago, illnois

last year a kid in my school committed suicide because he couldn't handle it anymore. I've always been against bullying, but for me that was a wake up call. I've been bullied before and it sucks. I don't ever want any person to feel like they are not as "cool" as someone else. We are all equal. It dosent matter how many friends you have, how much money you have, or anything else. I care because I don't want anyone to feel so sad that they feel the need to tie their own life.
