I Care Because

Some people are mean. I used to be Bullied and it really does Hurt!

Brandon, 15, McColl sc

I care because everyone, no matter what the age, is not immune to hurt, anger, cruelty, BULLYING!  Our differences should UNITE us, not destroy us!

Tammy R Tescher, 49, Beulah, North Dakota

I've been bullied since my peers could talk. My wrists bleed every night. I don't want anyone to go through that. It hurts internally and externally. Help me.

Reagan, 12, Georgia

Bullying not only hurts the victim, but also the perpetrator.  It is a sign that the perpetrator has already been experiencing a lot of pain himself/herself. The sad part is that neither of them have received either the proper care, nurturing, or education to prevent this horrible act. It reflects so poorly on all of us as a society, and in the end, we ALL pay.

Lisa, 65, Florida

I onced was bullied sometimes i still am i stick up for people who are bullied. i was bullied cause of how slow i learn im not the fastest learner but i try, i get made fun of cause i fail almost every test and quiz.

I care because I watched people bullied others as I just stood and watched the suffer.I beleive that children/teens  should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.

Lilly, 15, Mighigan

I have been bullied in the past- and even though it wasn't as bad then what others went through, IT SUCKS! I care about each and everyone one of you. No one deserves to get bullied. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Always remember: you will get through it! Currently my best friends are the ones who bullied me in the past. 

I love each and everyone of you💜💜.

I'm praying that it gets better,

Because IT WILL
