I Care Because

A kid in my class is always being bullied. The boys don't listen to me when I say anything, they just try to flirt. I hate watching it happen and I just wish it would stop. I'm sure every bully would hate for what they do to other people to happen to them. We all deserve respect and happiness.

Hello there! Bullying is a horrible thing and it drives me crazy that kids do that. Just because someone is different doesn't mean they aren't a good person. Stand up to bullying and be an active bystander!

I care because I have depression.I know what it feels like to feel so little, and sad, I wouldn't want anyone feeling this way because some bully wanted to decide how much they're worth. Everyone is unique, and brings something different and new to the table.

Every one deseves to be on this planet. They shouldn't be bullyed for who they are or what they are. There family wealth shouldn't matter it should be the way the treat peoyple, the way they are, the way they take part in this world. Bullying shouldn't spread.

In 5th grade I felt like no one cared about me because I bullied.I was bullied because the way I looked and the that I was always the last one done doing math cause I didn't understand math very well.When I was bullied because of my looks I wanted to change myself.

I actually used to bully a girl like 5 years ago just for fun, but I didn't realized how harmful that could be for the girl , suddenly I stop seeing her and years later on messenger she told me that she was about to commit suicide because of me  because all the things I said to her, since that moment I realized it wasn't a game and it is something serious.

no one should feel worthless. Hearing Jamey Rodemeyer's story really touched me. No one should have to deal with cutting words about their race, gender, sexuality, religion, or appearance. We often don't realize how our words and actions impact others.

A.J., 17, Arizona

My 11 year old sister has been bullied and made fun of because of her weight since she was 8. There are very very mean people in her school that make fun of her because of her weight, and she's not even big. They don't take the time to see her natural beauty, discover her beautiful attitude, or to get to know her before they judge her. Underneath all the tears, there is a girl with a beautiful heart of gold. Bullying needs to stop for little girls like my sister.
