I have been bullied, I was bullied most of my childhood. From 1st to 7th grade. Even though I'm older now I still feel the scars from all those years of torture. I used to come home everyday from school crying to my mom because of a new name the kids figured out to call me. Most importantly my little brother is now going through bullying. He has thought about killing him self because of it, needless to say I am very adimit about this Teens Against Bullying, and want bullying to be stopped..

i didnt have a lot of friends because i have hair on my arms and face..i was pretty hairy and people would come up with names...names that probably dont mean much but it hurt me and i wouldnt tell my mom and i would cry at night..i still dont tell but all i know is that it hurts and i wish it would stop :(

I belive that everyone has a right to enjoy life, and not be bothered about being bullied. Some time you think your not bullyng people, but in reality you are and it hurts people, but some people just cannot come to realize it. Bullyng people leads the targets to doing crazy things, and if they do the bully will or should regret it awfully. Nobody should have to deal with bulying, EVER!

Sarah, 13, WA

I care because I watched people bullied others as I just stood and watched the suffer.I beleive that children/teens  should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this.

Hi I’m Charlotte. And we have this girl in my class who is a bully. And she only targets me. Everyone else just sits there and watches. And the teachers just hope it goes away! How unfair is that? She just gets away with everything! I’m done. I’m finally standing up to her. I’m sick of this. If you or someone else is being bullied, tell a teacher or trusted adult amidily. No more living in fear of bullies. Stand up. Be heard. Don’t let them get in your head. Get in their’s.
