I Care Because ...

One of my best friends was scared out of his school because he was threatened. A football player looked at him and threatened to kill him because he was gay. It scard my friend so much that he wouldn't give up his name. He just transfered schools. He used to be so proud of who he is. He's not proud anymore. And he should be. 
I've always been against bullying, and tried to fight against it, but this situation with my friend has really opened up my eyes to how BIG of a problem is it. He is why I'm standing up. Because no one, whether straight, gay, overweight, underweight, mentally handicapped, black, white, no matter who they are, NO ONE deserves to be bullied. That's why I care. And that's why I'm fighting for them.~

bullying used to be percieved as a physical thing. while it sometimes still is, what prevails today is verbal bullying."sticks and stones can break my bones but words can break my heart" i found that quote here at this site. it's true. i have been called "fat" and it sticks, just like any other horrible name that has ever been thrown to kids. WORDS HURT. and the pain stays and even grows, and i took it in silence. but i shouldn't have had to. no should have to. i support this cause because it's giving back to us the faith in ourselves that we've lost. it's what gives us the power to beat bullying and stop it from happening to others. it's empowering. and it gives me hope. imagine a world without bullies...

I go to Russellville High School and we have created the Peace Club. This is group of young students, including me, wanting to make a change in our high school. Our club is to show tolerance with other people. One topic we have in our club is bullying. I really care about this topic because so many people are bullied physically and verbally. NO ONE deserves this. We are all equal and should treat each other how we want to be treated. And I know everyone has felt bullied at one time or another.  The only thing is I don't exactly know how to get the word out about bullying past our club. I was just wondering how we could make a big impact outside of the group that already cares. I want everyone to care because IT IS a big deal.  We could save many kids lives.

Being bullied in jr. high school affected my life forever. I learned to have compassion for people who are different. I was laughed at and teased for being the tallest girl in a school of 3000 plus. I still remember the hurt. There should be classes to teach compassion, inclusion and understanding of others differences. It's just as important as reading, writing and arithimatic.

i wasn't bullied to much. but i went to a new school in high school. and i saw alot of bullying to kids who are different. the victims feel alone, and i know what thats like. its depressing. i felt ugly and like no one cared about me. if you see a kid whos alone, who seems "friendless" talk to them, you'd want someone to talk to you.

WOW, I wish I found this when I was 11  which was when I started getting low self esteem.  All of middle school people called me ugly, big nose, white girl, too skinny, anerxioc, flat chested, and I'm latina....I thought I had to be thick and dark to be beautiful. I didn't fit in, and boys were so mean to me. I got regected a lot and I had 0 true friends. I got back stabbed. I just wanted to die, I didn't fit in with my own family since I had 'foregin' looks. Watching the Tyra show &ANTM I saw girls who were like me. I was in my school's fashion show and did the runway walk. SO MANY people cheered for me and told me to become a model! I've never felt that great, since then my self esteem has boosted up. I've had my family, guys, friends, strangers hurt me with words. Now i see those things in a positive way, I love me. So you're not alone. Being different pays off, it makes you a caring person and it feels great to help someone out (:

So growing up in a small town, I was one of the only people who was bigger, I was not very smart, I was not very popular, and people treated me like I was just a nobody. My whole life I have had those people call me fat, stupid, worthless, I have had them tell me to kill myself, say I would not be missed if I was gone, call me ugly. Honestly there is not a single more harmful thing in this world then bullying. People need to see how much it can hurt someone, and not only that one person but many other people around them, due to those people I grew up with, I will now forever have a part of me feel that what they said was true, and that will forever affect me, and my friends, and my family. it will one day affect my future husband and children, and those people who called me names never willl know who they have affected beyond the person they once knew. well now I am a strong person, I love my family and friends, I have alot of friends, many people find my outgoing personality wonderful and I love making people smile. I have got myself a great career, and I am making a great life for myself. So I proved those people wrong. bullying needs to stop!

I have had a friend that was bullied everyday at school from maybe 1st grade to 4-5th. She would get stones thrown after her, she would be threatened by knife,or beaten up or called names.
Me and some other friends of mine went to some teachers to talk about it,but they would just ignore it. Or if someone did care, they would just say "stay away from that person that do this. Just ignore it then he would stop," etc..  We got our parents involved and they did so much to help us with this problem. They would go to the principal and ask if he could arrange so this person who bullied her could go to another school. But he couldn't do it. The principal said after alot of discussions "Just wait to you start in 8th grade,then everything will be alright."  But to wait 3-4 years to stop the bullying,it's just ridiculous. Bullying should never be ignored! 
Now when I think of it,I get so mad over that nobody could make her feel good about herself,she would just be ignored by the teachers. 
Now she's doing fine,but bullying really have had an effect on her. Who could blame her? 
Thanks to Demi Lovato for doing something about this. I'm from norway,so sry for bad english. :p

I care because I have a 15 year old son that has Aspergers, a form of autism. Aspergers does not define who he is, it is just a part of him. He is a wonderful friend to anyone who takes the time to get to know him. Just this week I had to pick him up from school after he had been bullied and pushed by a fellow student. He was in tears. This boy has been calling him names for a couple of weeks now. Hopefully after intervention from the school, this will stop. I only hope that this website and the message reaches as many teens as possible. There is no excuse for abuse and words hurt just as much as fists. I cant wait to show him this website when he gets home from school. Thank you for spreading the message! A grateful and PROUD mom of a really great kid with Aspergers.

I was bullied nonstop in grade school. Being bullied has affected me so much. I want to speak out against bullying because it can cause a lot of harm to your self-image and it will ruin your self-confidence. Every single person has a right to live their life and be who they are. I am so glad Demi speaks out against bullying. She is one of the biggest role models in my life. Love you Demi!

i'm always made fun of because most of my friends are girls. i try not to let it get to me but it always takes a tole on my self-esteem. but then my friends help me through it and they always make me feel better

I care because everyone is human. Everyone has feelings. When I was in 4th grade, up until 6th or 7th people would make fun of me and call me mustachio because I had a bit of upper lip hair. They'd call me a guy, and it bothered me so much because obviously I am a girl. I hated it, I wanted to go away and never come back. Everyone needs to realize everything they say could potentially effect someone's life. Which could effect someone else's life. You could be the start of a horrible chain reaction.

Im being bullied and it's not a good feeling most people call me a dumb blonde because I'm very slow on catching on (I'm not a blonde,Im Hispanic/black/Italian).It hurts me when my friends say it even though I don't show how I'm really feeling.

All throughout highschool I was bullied for different reasons. It affected my confidence and made me hate who I was. I ended up doing cyber school for my senior year because the bullying was too much, I was afraid to go back. My mom has helped me a lot through this and I just take life day by day now, trying to stay positive about the person I am.

Tori - 17 - PA

Hi Everybody,
My best friend and me used to be bullied when I was in elementary school. Then I went to high school and now I'm in my fifth year. Because I used to be bullied, I try now to stop it. When I see that somebody's being bullied I say something or just go to her/him and say that they have to forget everything. 'Cause I know everybody is special in his/her own way. You shouldn't listen to other people. It's the differences between everyone that makes it fun to live, 'cause we can always learn from each other. If we were all the same it would just be boring. Everybody's different and special. And you should always remember that. Always! Bullying isn't cool, everybody should stop immediately. Just think about this: only say or do something to other people if you would like it if they did or say it to you. My parents say this all the time, and it's true. Believe in yourself and know that you can be everything you want to be. Don't care about the others. I know it's hard, because I went through the same things. But I believe that we can change this. With all my love. Evelien xx

Bullying is not just getting picked on or hurt physicly or emotionaly it is also hurtfull in a different way. for  example I am now in 6th grade and i thought that it was going to be so fun and me and my friend alyssa where going to  talk to each other every chance we get. the first and second day was exactly that. but then this girl came and started talking to her and now she dosn't talk to me at all. so bullying not just getting punched in the face it is also haveing one of your friends or old friends not talking to you. so if  they end up not talking to you then they are not a true friend. and i think that everyone should just stop right then and there.

Right after I got into 7th grade I was bullied along with my friends.They throw stuff at us,call us names and make fun of us for no reason.This needs to stop because it dosen't feel right and it's very hurtful. 

Gabby - 12 - IN

People generally are very rude.Bullying is just like a sport ...they feel good if they make you cry..and don't care if that hurts you..I appreciate that Demi thinked at us.It's very sad what is happening in the world...I go through this.My "B.F.F." called my skinny.She felt good when she called me like that even if she isn't perfect.

Bullying can lead to tough situations.  Once someone gets bullied,  they feel like THEY should bully to show people how they felt.  It won't lead you to a good life or career.  This program is exactly what we need to help bullying leave the world.  I neeeeeed to say thank you to Demi Lovato, because since she is a wonderful role model and inspirastion,  people will join the cause and help stand up for bullying.

I'v been bullied and trust me, i know how it feels to want to fit in, but some people just take it too far. People have lost their lives to relentless bullies. If i share my personal experiences my comment would go on for century, but i just wanted to remind everyone out there who's been bullied that your not alone. You are beautiful in your own way and bullies just want to take that away from you so don't let them.

when i was 5, 6 years old i used to  call other people bad names and make other things really bad! I wasnt niece! Than when I grown up I started thinking about it and I started  to  apologise everyone and at now I convinced some friends to create a project at school to stop the bully! And what I think it was niece was that the 2 girls I used to implicated with  decided to forget the past and to start from the begginig with me! But we are not friends cause we have different views of life but now i will never do something to hurt anyones feelings.Now I respect other people and learned how to live with different cheildren.Thats why Demi Lovato my idol! I want to help her stopping bully! Cause this is someyhing really bad, and because of these thinhgs i used to do now I  understand ! Thanks for your comprension!

I get bullied. It's painful to know that other students at school are only focusing on my flaws. Sometimes I even end up hating going to school because I start thinking something terrible is going to happen to me.

I used to live in South Dakota when I was 12, Now I moved to Virginia. When I got to my new school I thought I'd be fine and make some great friends, but as a few days passed, life got difficult. I made some friends but these three girls, who were popular but mean told some of my friends not to talk to me, and every lunch, nobody wanted to sit next to me, and when the girls pass me they threw stuff on me and called me names. And they would whisper to girls right in front of me and spread rumors about me constantly and I would be the last girl to be picked for partners or a team activities.
A girl spread a rumor once about me that if anyone touched or talked to me, They would become ugly, and the only person who supported me was my best friend Bella,  When it was home time they would shout after me "Look, its Danielle the Ogre, Run everyone before she gets you!"
and i would run home crying.
I begged my parents If I could get homeschooled but It was hard to find a teacher.
So we moved to Texas and I made good friends in my New School :)

Bullying isn't nice, It hurts people's feelings.
We should stand up

I wanna thank Demi Lovato and Teens Against Bullying for helping me.

I was peviously bullied last year and eventually I had to switch schools. School is hard enough without other kids making it harder to cope. That is why I hate seeing people being bullied and I always stick up for the person in anyway I can because bullies don't bullly anyone if their in group. Demi lovato is an inspiration for me because i'm a musician also and I have one thing left to say I want the bullying in our schools to stop.

Sinead - 14 - ID

I never really was bullied, but I always became friends to those who were bullied. Like last year, a girl named Laura she was new to the country and she made expressions that kids our school took it the wrong way. The would come up to her and say mean things. She was new, but she understood everything. I never called her names I actually gave her advice. And the funny thing was those girls who insulted her were actually my friends. Yea, my group was like the ones everyone scared. I dont want people to be scared of me. I like making friends the NICE way. So be an outcast of your group, even if they dont agree with you. It can make a difference,
