"I CARE BECAUSE BULLYING IS NOT THE SOULTION TO ANYTHING ! ;D"

Breanna, 14, INDIANA

I was bullied because of being me I was called ''gay'' one day a girl came up to me and said ''Hi, everyday I see you at this table alone.'' after that we were best friends we did everything together.Then I started getting friends back i was glad we were friends we are still friends to day.

I know exactly how is feels to be bullied and the pain that comes along with it. I had been bullied all the way up until 8th grade which hurt so much. When you hear that you're fat, ugly your nose is big, and everything else like that, you start to believe it. I still suffer with self image issues, but I'm getting better. I will do anything for anybody and I will stick up for people, it's not right at all.

Cara, 16, VA

Bullying is terrible. I am against bullying.

Gregory, 16, Pennsylvania

If you see bullying know that someone is crying on the inside in front of you. And Demi... Thanks

Tyler, 13, NC

the reason i care about this cause is because i have been bullied my self and it is a massive problem in schools all over the world and i think its time to make a stand.

andrew, 15, uk doncaster

Bullying is wrong.. all types. I've been bullied verbally since first grade.. at the time it didn't effect me. But then it continued.. (it wasn't just in school either, random people just called me out on the street) and the person who's actually inspired me to ignore it (which is extremely hard) and not worry too much is Demi (Lovato) because of her personal experiences. I haven't told anyone that before...

Tianna, 14, PA

Every day l look around and see people getting teased just beacuse what their wearing and how they look. There are some days that I don't even wanna go to school  beacuse I rather avoid all this drama!! Sometimes I fell like every ones the same like we all have to act like one another just beacuse were afraid that people will tese us beacuse were different. In my school u can never be yourself people think that being vain is a good thing but it's not beacuse the real beauty is in the inside so if u are one of those people who care more about vanity than anyone else the truth is you're not so "beautiful" afther all.The real beautiful people in this world are people who don't pay attention to what they wear. All they care about is the kinda person they are
