  • bullying needs to stop my friend gets bullyed all the time and she wants to leave the school because she gets bullied stand up to the bully!

    Tiffani — South Carolina
  • I've been bullied since I was born pretty much. I've lost everything because of bully's. I've cried so many times and they just never stop. It's been 15 years. And none of them see what they do to me, but it kills me on the inside. But I don't show on the outside.

    Heather — Saint Joseph
  • I hate bullying, I have been targeted before and I am currently being targeted by bullies at the moment, I helped my friend through a time when she was bullied, and it was a hard time for both of us. Bullying needs to stop, because bullies can do awful things to people, mentally and physically.

    Emmy — Emgland
  • bullying is hurtful, it hurts our self-esteem and our sense of belonging to a community or group. It is cruel, unproductive for all involved and maddening. It's been going on forever but it has to change as women's right to vote became a reality, as children's right did too, or as animal cruelty became a punishable crime. Living in a society where bullying is prohibited could change things from its core. Maybe one day in less than 100 years who knows, we will be able to live a life in which compassion is the most valuable human quality.

    Turquesa — California
  • I was bullied through school, it was the worst as a senior in high school. My brother (in middle school) was also going through it. No matter who we went to, no one helped us. The school did nothing because they had no proof. My brother and I were alone and picked on every day. I stand against bullying for those who are like us.

This is me!

I never understand what I did.
Couldn’t comprehend.
I try and try but to you I’m always a foe not a friend.
I take all you give, but there is only so much before my heart becomes too thin.
Chours!!!(I am different.
But the things you say won’t make a difference.
I am me.
And I’m free to chose who I want to be
Cause This is me.)
I ain’t saying I’m perfect.
There are things I regret
but equality I will try to spread.
I’m confident.
but still a little on the soft end.
Do you not see who you hurting?
Words like that shouldn’t be thrown around like nothing.

(I am different.
But the things you say won’t make a difference.
I am me.
And I’m free to chose who I want to be
Cause This is me.)
It takes a lot to say something.
Not sure what did?
Just talk to a friend.
And in your mind repeat these lines.
(I am different.
But the things you say won’t make a difference.
I am me.
And I’m free to chose who I want to be
Cause This is me.)
