Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because I lost my best friend. I care because when I walk down the hallway, people give me weird stares. I care because I know how it feels. I care, because I wanna make the voices that can no longer speak, heard.

    Samantha — California
  • I have been bullied about the way I dressed and I am too skinny and that my family pick cans up for money not too my face but behind my back which is sometime worse because they known what they are doing is wrong. I just want the bullying too stop

    stephanie — iowa
  • I was bullied myself in elementary school, and middle school. In elementary school I had no friends until the fourth grade. One of them is still a good friend today, and in middle school it was brutal. I would get picked on, and no one would want to talk to me, except for my friends. I care because I want to make a difference for the younger generations below me, because I have siblings who are younger than me and I don't want them to have to go through the same pain as me. I've been part of the anti bullying club at my school for all three years of HS so far. We have changed, and I have changed so many lives already for teens and younger kids. It doesn't matter how someone is being bullied, I want to stop it, put an end to it and make sure that everyone is safe from the nationwide epidemic.

  • i dont like seeind others get picked on sometimes I want to help out but i am scared i will get bullied to. I love helpig little kids out becuase it helps them become a better person in the future. I dont want anymore bullies in my school so i am going to start preventing bullies from being rude to other students. If a little kid gets bullied he/she might move away because he/she is getting bullied and I want to prevent that.

“Being African American and other mixed blood”
Anonymous

I look more African American then any other of my mixed blood in me, which is Cherokee Indian and Samoan.
Growing up in America Samoa was not easy. I was called names picked on by other children and also by adults. As I grew up and I realize the ignorance in many families even my own. They would say "meauli" which means black thing and think its funny or named me by this name was very disturbing. I was always distant from these family members because they lack the knowledge in how much what they think of me and say about me is so belittling. My bullying was in school and at my own home. The worse part of this experience is most adults are encouraging this ignorance.
It’s funny how I had these strange people calling me "Julie" and to realize years later when one of my own family members shed light on why they were calling me by this name is because they used this name in place of the black thing they used to lighten the degrading name calling which still refers to the color of my skin.
