Tell Us Why You Care

  • I was bulled in elementary school and no one seemed to be doing anyhing about it. My parents ended up moving me to a private school where the bullying didn't stop but it didn't occur as much. I was lucky enough to have a Dad who taught me how to stick up for myself and it wasn't long before bullies stopped. Now I'm no longer bullied, but I know that it's not easy standing up to so many kids when you're standing alone. I didn't suffer as much as kids these days do even though the words were hurtful I was a very tough girl. But not all of us are tough and that's why we need others to be aware of this issue and what it can do to a child mentally, emotionally and academically. Bullying is a big issue and it needs to be solved. People need to stop looking past it becuase children are suffereing because of it.

  • I've been bullied for as long as i can remember, whether it was because of my weight,height, or some other ridiculous thing that i couldn't prevent,i always remembered how that felt and how badly i felt about myself because of the relentless bullying, NO ONE SHOULD EVER HAVE TO FEEL LIKE THAT!That is why i care.

  • I am active in my school with a program called the buddy program. the buddy program at my middle school has the eighth graders helping and mentoring the 5/7th graders. the eighth graders are called the big buddies and the littler kids are called the little buddies. I am so excited for the fall so I can get started. working with them and helping to make my school a better place. For most of the little buddies you are one of their only friends so you need to be there for them. once I herd that you could sign up right now me and 2 of my closest friends said that when we got out of class we were going to the office to sign up. BECAUSE WE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

  • I was bullied when I was in my gradeschool, boys and even girls pick on me. I never really had a friend and all i did back then was just cry & take all the insults in. Until I reached my highschool, I started to get myself altogether , i did become confident but in a bad way where I became a bully myself & did bully someone. when I reached my 2nd yr of HS, I decided to change, repent of what I did. and then I started to help those other teens at my school against those who bully them (it's like good bully vs bad bully). I was happy that i could help and now that I am in college finishing a degree I will never stop & try to help those who are in need.

  • This is the response to a "hey" I sent to someone on chat...."U stupid little girl leave me alone no one likes u so get a life and ya I get that u like me and all but tbh u r annoying ugly and fat so ya" This happens all the time at school. People are just mean and it makes me sad that I can't have to any friends. it is so bad I want to change schools. I really wish the teachers would open there eyes.

Just the Thing
Meredith O'Connor

This video can be interpreted many ways. A lot of people didn’t get it in the first cut and a lot did. The point is that two people can be considered complete outcasts, but if they truly care about each other, that’s all they need and to them, its everyone else who are outcasts. Luke Bilyk was great to work with, and I am so happy he is another activist who stands by this message.
