I am bullied and i feel lonely. My life has been miserable since that day on. My grades went down and there's nothing to live for. The words are stuck on my mind and its killing me inside.

Grace, 12, IDN

'' It seems like so many people don't take bullying seriously. When will they finally understand the consequences of bullying someone? I was bullied a lot in elementary school for my height, and even religion! Sometimes I would lock myself in my room and just cry myself to sleep, it was that bad. Lesson to be learned: Bullying is NOT a joke, and we all need to work as a team to fix this issue. So that's my story, everyone! 

Sara, 12, WA

when i was 6 i was always picked on by boys and girls because of how i talked i wouldnt want anyone else to feel the way i did . still to this day im still scared of what people might think of me... and i'm 13 now! so i know what it feels like. this is why i care!
