I Care Because

I was bullied as a child and an adult... Be that person that reaches out to someone who is alone.. You see a kid sitting alone at lunch--go talk to them.. It only takes one kind word to make someone feel like they matter :)

My sister and i have both been bullied , im tired of it the kids make fun of my sister cause shes different . I have been bullied because people think im ugly or they talk about me . Im tired of it , Im sick of seeing people being bullied . I speak out against bullying because the people who are bullies have no life and think they can bully somebod for no reason what so ever.

I've seen lots of people changed by bullying! Anti-Bullying month is very important to me; to spread the awareness that bullying is only making matters worse. I've been bullied from a young age and It really affects who you are as a person!

Krystal, 12, Australia

I've had a friend who was bullied severely and the pain that she felt is something no one should ever have to go through. It almost resulted in suicide and for someone to experience a feeling that strong is cruel and should not be tolerated.

Bekah, 16, Texas

bullying is wrong no one should be put down for how they look dress or act it is just wrong this is why for my 20% I will be making a video to prevent bullying!!!!!

Emily, 13, California

I was bullied when i was little and to this day still suffer from the effects. I have self harmed and been anerexic since i was 13. People always say that sticks and stones may break your bones but names can never hurt you. It is so untrue... names and things people say hurt way more than hits. Trust me i've dealt with both. Bullying is in no way cool and i hope with ever fiber in my body that if enough people stand up that it can be stopped once and for all. BULLYING HURTS!
