I care because I was bullied and then became a bully. Im standing up to speak out because what I did was wrong and bullying needs to stop.
We need to be here for each other. No more bulys !

I wasn't born in Holland so I've always felt like I didn't belong here .
I'm diferent then the rest and I guess that's something that will always folow me

Larissa, 16, Holland

I've had a friend who was bullied severely and the pain that she felt is something no one should ever have to go through. It almost resulted in suicide and for someone to experience a feeling that strong is cruel and should not be tolerated.

Bekah, 16, Texas

i am bullied everyday by different people and my teachers do not do anything about it...we really need consequences for our bullies actions because it might push someone else to the edge

Taylor, 13, georgia

I care because I definitely been builded my whole life by people from school and even my family and no one should ever feel the way I'm feeling everyday because no one deserves that. Everyone is beautiful dont ever forget that never let anyone take your happiness away because remeber your not alone in this. 

Tabetha, 17,

Even though I'm 22 and soon graduating from college, I still remember that horrible feeling I would get whenever I was bullied in middle school.  In fact, it's perhaps the most unfortunate, vivid memory I have from those years.

Jamie, 22, California

i know how it feels to be lonley and scared when someone bullies you. You get that weird feeling inside, like your not good enough. And that's why i'm going to try to stop this at my school. To many peoples feelings are getting hurt, and it's time to stop the bulling! 

anonymous, 12, MI

I have been bullied about the way I dressed and I am too skinny and that my family pick cans up for money not too my face but behind my back which is sometime worse because they known what they are doing is wrong. I just want the bullying too stop

stephanie , 21, waterloo, iowa

Bullying is a life disrupting event and a very abusive situation for those who suffer.

Sherise, 44, MN

I have been dealing with bullying my whole life since kindergarten I am soon turning 16 and for the last two years, it has been getting really bad where I have other students telling me to go die and I get pushed into walls, lockers, and occasionally down stairs. I have been cornered in the bathroom and had several girls bash my head into the cement wall until I was unconscious. I have told school authorities, emailed, and called about it. For anyone going through some similar situation You are not alone and being bullied has nothing to do with you... please stay strong you are needed
