I Care Because

I feel that everyone has a right to be equal. No one should ever be treated unfair!

Joy, 10, Virginia

My little brother is really little, and he does have a disability. Many many people don't have the heart to realize that he didnt choose to be disabled. I look up for my little brother 100% and nobody deserves to be mistreated or looked down to. He's amazing, and I love him dearly, and he will change the world one day. stand up for everyone who you knows been bullied,
because it really hurts.

Amanda, 15, az

I was bullied to the poimt of starvation, I'm never going to be what they want me to be. Eating use to be so simple, not now. It's a fight. Everyone tells me how sickly thin I look, to me I'm not thin. But It's not all about looking thin, its about control. Those people ruined my veiws on life, and I couldn't watch anyone go through the same as me, It'd be too cruel.

Chloe, 13, England

I am not personly effected by bullying, but I have seen what it can do. My older sister was driven to be home schooled in the 7th grade because people were so mean to her. And I  watched her come home from school crying because she was so upset. I know that most of the people who say those things are either saying it because someone else is, or saying it to make themselves feel better. So really I feel bad for them, and I know that to be better than them, I have to just shrug off whatever they say, because I don't have to care.

Breanna, 13, Ohio/Lima

i think bullying is hurtful! i does nothing but hurt someones feelings and makes a bad statment about you

jacob, 11, virginia

i know what it feels like to get bullied....people make fun of me about the music i listen too, and what i wear. Getting  bullied puts lots of pressure on you... and bullying caused me to cut myself...so i care . 

Autumn, 13, williamstown,kentucky

My daughter was bullied in the housing complex we live in and in school, because of different things that her classmates felt the need to bully her for. It had got to the point where she wanted to kill herself. I felt bad for her and it really got to me and our family when she came crying to me and said she is tired of being bullied. It got to the point that one child fought her for no reason at all and when I saw the video I was very upset. Bullying is not a joke and children take it as a joke and say oh I was just playing but bullying can really mess both the person being bullied and the one doing the bullying up for life.
