I Care Because

i was all ways pick on because was fat and small

jordan, 13, iowa

I used to bully, too ( 5th grade)- but I didn't know it was bullying. The kids in my class and I always made fun of the mentally challenged kids when we passed by their room because of the wierd noises they made. We'd imitate them, then laugh at them. I wasn't the ringleader, but I really don't know who was. When I realized that it was bullying, I stopped, but then started again, In 6th grade, I realized how wrong I was and stopped. I can't imagine myself in one of those kids' shoes!

Gabby, 12, Mississippi

I was a victim for 3 years in elementary school by a group of girls and I witnessed bullying now in my middle school years. I'm in 7th grade by the way and there's this boy who gets picked on and he's tired of it and he told me he wanted to commit suicide and that's not his first time trying. How many suicides is it going to take for people to notice words hurt ?

Mayara, 15, SP

i care because i had to watch my best friend get bullied to the point to where she quit school because she could not take the pain of going each day! this should not happen to anyone!!! and i want to stop it from happening to someone else

Alicia, 23, GA

I care because I was bullied for 4 years and i dont want it to ever happen to anyone again. i understand the pain. Everyone should care!!

Sara, 15, Tennessee

The same thing happened to me the last year... Some very mean and dumb boys started picking on me and told me every single day that I'm gay and threw away my bag, etc. But one day, I stood up for myself and told them my true opinion about them: how insecure and worthless they are for trying to bring me down. Then all my classmates took my side, and those jerks never said a single word to me ever again. I've made many new friends and now I'm actually very popular ;) don't give up dude!

tom, 16, Ca

Me and my friends are bullied every day for being smart and normal, not boy crazy and mean. I have no idea what I did to these people, but they seem to hate me and my BFF Rach the most. We never did anything, honest. They refuse to work with us, call our names out, and call us derigitory things. I go to a Catholic school, which makes everything harder, because our teachers refuse to believe these kids would do anything. I wanna leave school so bad, and I cry a lot. I want to stop this NOW.
