I Care Because

I hate when people bully because, it's sad to see it happen! I sometimes imagine if I were in that position, I know that I would'nt like it at all. My friend got bullied for being different!! You are you, and only you, being the same is boring! Don't copy someone because you like their clothes! And most importantly DON'T LET ANYBODY CHANGE WHO YOU ARE!!!!!!!!! If you are getting bullied, tell a teacher or parent right away, stand up for people!

I have seen many people be bullied. I have never been bullied, but I try to stand up for the kids who are. I've fought kids just to get them to stop bullying other kids. I feel bad for the kids that get bullied. I guess I'm kinda in a group of friends, but I still hang out and be friends with everyone. If you run in to me you'll probably see me in a kinda country/rebel crowd, but I'm friends with anyone who would be friends with me.

Bullies think that they are cool by picking on other people but BULLYING IS NOT COOL.Sometimes bullies come from violent or disagreeable families or think it is the right thing to do but it is not . I recently have been bullied by a girl at my school but she has become kind of friendly now which i am glad of. She used to write my name on the board for no reason and be unkind to me what I dont understand is why she was nice to everybody else and not me . Nobody stood up for me but one girl who saw me lingering around the board wanting to rub my name off she told me that i had done nothing wrong and to rub it off so i did . I never have any friends anymore but i really like reading so i read in break time . REMEMBER YOU ARE NOT ALONE TELL OTHERS ABOUT BULLYING AND PREVENT IT .
