I Care Because

I care because NO ONE desserves to go through the things I've been through. No one.. it hurts, it really does. I'm fed up and something NEEDS to be done. 

Sara, 16, Michigan

I care because I was bullied when I was little but I don't anymore and I just don't like to see others bullied. The people that stand up to bullies of their own or help out other kids by standing up to their bullies are my kind of people. I want to thank a few people that helped me in elementary school when I was being bullied. If I knew them still I would probably be pretty good friends with them. 

Kyle, 15, Michigan

I currently not bullied in school, but I certainly see others being bullied. The kids at my school bully a special ed kid. He just wants friends, but the kids tease him while the kid doesn't know. The've trash canned him and push him around. I don't understand why they do this but I know they know its wrong. I've told them to not back off but they don't listen. Although I don't know either kids, it really urks me that they do this, and when I think about it I remember that there are kids being bullied for trying to be friends. I hope the bullies know that one day Karma will come and hit them 10x harder. TO ALL THOSE BEING BULLIED: KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND DONT LET THOSE FOOLS GET TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU ARE 10X BETTER AND SUICIDE IS NEVER THE ANSWER. 

Sophia, 15, Las Vegas

everyone is made of carbon and has bone mass, muscle, and skin. There is nothing different or weird about any of us. We are just special in our own ways and we should embrace it. Everyone has hopes and dreams and if a bully pushes someone to a breaking point that person won't be able to achieve all that they want in life. Teenagers are the preliminary stages to adulthood and why bother someone you're not fond of, just ignore them. There is no point in torturing people. In the end, bullies get the humiliation.

Christine, 16, NY

i care because ive never been bullied and im sorry if ur bullied life must suck but remember stand strong

max, 10, utah

Just two days ago as I was driving, a woman in the car beside me yelled, "FREAK!" as I drove by. This person had no right to call me any name. I've never seen her before in my life, and I probably will never see her again. Not only does bullying from strangers hurt, but it hurts even more when people you thought were your friends bully you to your face, and even behind your back. Words and actions hurt. Even as an adult I am victimized by the way that I dress, my piercings, and my tattoos. An outward appearance does not show the way you are inside. I am a firm believer in bullying prevention and people seeking help because of bullying. Don't ever give up. You're better and stronger than the people bullying you. I love every single one of you.
