I Care Because

We have reached a tipping point when it comes to bullying. This is a totally different era and bullying is not harmless anymore...it's downright deadly. My heart breaks with each new teen suicide that occurs. We CANNOT simply stand by and pretend this is not happening or that it's "part of growing up". Everyone should do something, no matter how small, to contribute to the effort to stop this bullying pandemic. We all have a lot of little chances that pop up every day in our lives to do something about this. Don't turn the other cheek. Help in any way you can.

i care because i feel alone and i get bullied by sommeone who i thought cared about me treats me as if their disgusted. they say mean things like fat, ugly, their dissapointed in me cause i cant be the person they want me to be. and ive tried self harming and at first it helped but now i'm scarred for life. and the words they've said are hurtful and they will always haunt me and i got pushed in front of a seeding car because someone i thought cared thinks my sister is better than me and they think im fat and ugly and that i shouldn't deserve the privelge to live. so now i deal with self image issues and i hope one day i can put this all behind me .

I have been a victim of bullying myself and at my adult age, the emotional scar is still there. I care because I hate to see young people get hurt physically and emotionally. Nobody deserves to be bullied! Spread love! Stop hurting each other. 

Maria, 45, Las Vegas, NV

I was bullyed all throughout elementry school. The pain i had from all the negativity was terrible. I still remember the words they said. I will never remember what they looked like, if they were popular or not. The bullying that I went through was so bad that I felt depressed. I never want to see it happen to someone. No one should ever go through that. But if you are, understand that you are not alone.
