I Care Because

Nathalie, 14, ch

When I was in elementary I was bullied because I didn't look the same and I wasn't the same size as everybody. But that didn't stop me for what I liked to do. I believe if just keep your head up then you can do what ever your heart feels like doing.

Kirsten, 13, Houston tx

No one deserves to be bullied, we are meant to be loved and adored.  

Leandra, 16, SA

Everyone should be treated equally!It doesn't matter how smart someone is, or what color their skin is because we're all the same.

Glendy, 18, Aurora, Colorado

People don't realize how bullying hurts. I was bullied, and I am 17 years old. High school can seem terrible, but with the help of my two sisters and friends I was able to pull through. However, some people do not have that privilege. To each and every person who is suffering hurt and depression I say this: "You matter in the world. Everyone matters." 

Kaitlyn, 17, Arkansas

Bullying has always been a problem for me ever since 2nd grade till now. At first i used to beleive it and try to chage myself for their benifit. But then i relized that being myself is not a crime.
