I Care Because

I have always felt the need to be different and students at my school don't  like that. Everyone blends in and molds together, but the people who ruin that are bullied. I was one of the people who ruined it. I would get so upset that I would cut myself and find any excuse to harm myself. I still don't blend in perfectly, but I've learned to embrace it because that's what life is all about. It's about being different. My heart and all my love goes out to Phoebe and her family and any other person who is bullied

i know what it feels like to be bullied by others, physical and verbal. But i know, someday bullying will stop be cause of those who care like me.

no child should be bullied they should be able to be themself and express who they are without being bullied. bullying really needs to stop because no child should be hurt in any way and they shouldnt have to worry about being hurt. im aganist bullying beause i dont think its right and everyone should be treated fairly! help stop bullying!

I care becuase I hate seeing people get hurt... Physically and mentally. Another thing I HATE about bullying is that we arre all human,but we are all different. People should not get teased because they are different. It is just so wrong. Even if I dont normally hang out with someone, i will talk to them or give them a smile. It really does help. So if you see someone down, all you have to do is smile, it could make their whole day.

no one really understands how it feeks to be bullied until it happens to them, its not fair on the people that have to go through it no matter who they are, it has to stop, we cannot give the bullies the satisfaction of getting to us and bringing us down

Anum, 14, London

im here becuase i was bullyed last year and i did not like it and i thought if im not being bullied why should they?

jordy, 10, midland

I know how it feels to get bullied. I get bullied everyday for my height, I'm at s strong height of 6 ft and i'm still growing. I always get made fun of because I am more than the average height. Plus I am multi-culture, while girls are gushing over fetty wrap, i am getting bullied for listening to BIG BANG or listening to girls generation.Or is it that i like to read a great book than watch empire or go to a football game.That a girl of my ethnic natural i'too smart", so yeah i care. I care because i know I how it feel to feel like there is something wrong, when really you are the STAR in this darkness.
