laterrian, 13, rayvilee,louisiana

I care because I used to be bullied and bullying is not fun.  Think about it would you want to be bullied?

Quenton, 13, Ohio

I care because i was been for several years in school nad am struggling to deal with it to this day. I am bullied because  i was born premature and because of that i am blind in my right eye and have vision in my left eye and beacause i like school and i am a nice person. I hate to see other people go through what i am going through. Bullying can hurt people in serveral ways. i feel bullying can end!

In my school I have been bullied and it does not feel good. It makes you feel bad about yourself .It just makes you ask what is wrong with me why don't they like me

Jamiah, 10, Brooklyn,NewYork

I can relate. I've moved around a lot in my life, and I find people are very, shall we say unaccepting, towards stranger. I've had friends hurt me, strangers shove me, and people just randomly shove my stuff on the ground. 

Always remember that just because no one fully understands exactly what you've gone through, doesn't mean they can't help or just be there for you. Just because bullying happens everywhere, doesn't make it right. Find someone who will help you get out of the sadness-pit you fall into every time you think of the hurt. Cause the least they could do, is just sit in there with you.

Bullying hurts and it should be stopped.

Joe, 12, WV

I care because i've been bullied and really never knew the reason why ! I mean they would say the most terrible things, without a reason.... They would call me fat when i'm really not, they would call me four eyes, they would also call me inappropite words. They also turned half of my class aganist me. This is like 7 girls at the same time bullying me for no reason...This all began in the 6th grade.

Emely, 12, New York
