i have been bullied and have witnessed bullying. bullying is a massive thing and it needs to stop. to the person bullying it may seem like a laugh, but the person who is bulllying it can have serious affects on their life. lets stand up together and fight bullying. Try to help people befor it gets to far, or too late. 

kirsty-lee, 18, UK

bullies are just people that build up the anger and leave it up on the ones getting bullied. Just think, have you ever hurt someone.? I know I have but I found out that it hurts because I went trough it. Its sucks wanting something that you could never have, just one friend is all it takes to make someone happy. be the fighter and help fight to survive the challenge.

sabrina, 13, tucson

I used to get bullied all the time in grade school, for being to skinny I was always left alone I had no friends no one to turn to when I just wanted to let everything out. I would of told one of my parents,but they wouldn't listen always more worried about what my little sister had to say. I don?t want people people to go through the same thing I did Im telling all of you this, because I wanted to tell you don?t listen to those haters they are just wanting to make others feel worthless because thatś the way that they fell. Tell a trusted teacher or sibling, trust me It will get better I know from experience. I hope you all are smiling you all are amazing in every way, thank you for reading this if you did I am writing this from my heart, Lots of LOVE Jessica. <3
