I Care Because

My freind Maddy and I were bullied. Maddy was bullied because she went somewhere for extra help and a girl though that she was so dumb that she had to have someone help her work. I was bullied because I wasn't popular. I would want to play a game and they would say that I wasn't popular enough to play. Then the girl that told me I couldn't play would call me names like "Idiot" "dumb head" and she would pick on me. Later the following year she left but her friend were still being mean and bullying me. Last year I started to get better for me but my friends all tranfered schools and I haven't seen any since 5 grade promotion.

I REALLY DONT LIKE BULLYING BECAUSE IT NOT RIGHT TO BDO

DARI, 10, WILDER ELAMENTRY

I totally care because i am constantly bullied and i feel that it is not right for people to be judged for who they are. Plus half the people that i know who are bullied, their bullies do not even know them personally. I feel like people believe that they can make fun of anyone or anything just because they can and it{s not right! It needs to stop right now, because people seen to commit suicide more and more because of bullying and over 160,000 people stay home from school each day because they are feared of being bullied and it{s outrageous!!!! Though most people don{t see it as bullying and harassment, it is. I just wish our world had better pride about themselves and others that way there is no need for bullying.

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

No one and i mean no one should be bullied i care because iv been through it and in all honesty i don't think its fair to people to be put down called names ect. People are different if we were all the same then this world would be so boring everything and everyone doing the same thing day after day.I care because im a caring person also because i know hpow it feels to be builled it makes you feel horrible people should be there own people and not someone who someone says for you to be. Be yourself and be pround to be yourself remeber the only person you should be trying to impress is your self.
