I Care Because

I care because I have had personal experiences  with bullying. It's not right to put someone down just to bring you to the illusion that you are better than them. I hope that those who bully will eventually realize tat what they are doing is wrong.

Michelle, 14, Arkansas

I care because i was bullied before. Bullying people is the worst thing you can do to someone. The group of girls that bullied me tried to beat me up and ruin my life. One of them lied to my Mom and the others just wrote me hate notes and wrote inside of my desk with a sharpie. After a while i felt so misrable i had panic attacks. My Mom and Dad got me a therapist, but it didn't help. What those girls would do to me was so mean. My principal and I had a lot of talks. They said it was normal midddle school problems. They didn't help and i ended up switching schools in the middle of the year. My new friends are so nice and i m finally happy. The only thing that makes me sad is knowing that because i left someone else might be getting hurt by those same girls. Bullying needs to stop.

Danielle, 12, New York

I know how it feels. I was once "mentally" bullied by my friends when I was in Middle School back in Indonesia, I just moved to the United States few months ago. I never got physically bullied, but the name calling and knowing that people are gossiping about you and talking bad things about you can really make you get depressed. I know how it felt being alone, without having anyone to support you behind your back, I really struggled to stay strong and keeping my head up high. That is why I care, I was a victim and I want kids and teenagers to be able to go to school peacefully.

I've never been a victim, but unfortunately I was both observer and I regret not having done anything but now that I'm reporting on the subject I am determined to put a stop to all those around me and so slowly make a change because ''The End of Bullying Begins With Me'' 

Paola, 16, TX

i care because i was a target for bullies. but im learning how to become my own person and stand up for myself. they call me names but i dont listen i know my friends will stand by me no matter what. so i can stand up and be who i want to be and not let bullies pull me to rock bottom.
