Tell Us Why You Care

  • bullies are just making fun of us because we are diffrent and i am tired of being bullied and the harrasment at the school

  • I care because every person is different in their own way. Height or weight. You shouldn't bully someone because their different. It hurts me every time a person or peer emotionally or physically hurts a student.



    Madi — 13
  • I care because when i have been bullied for being too short and been called ugly. I have started to self doubt and started to be depressed. I learned that i am not and you are beautiful the way you are.
    #DON'T BE A BULLY!!!!

  • People only bully because the are too scared to say their own weaknesses. Running away from their flaws they expose and exploit others' to feel good. It is nasty and cruel and big problem in our society. I HATE bullying and it should be stopped right away!



    Selam — 12
  • I honestly care because I have been bullied for three years in school and kids do not care about me and they still bully me to this day and it hurts me so bad and I have been bullied so bad that I have not wanted to go back to school and I am against bullying and I will stand up for any kids that are getting bullied and I talk to the kids that have been bullied and tell them what happend to me in school



    charles — 14
  • I am a high school teacher and I see bullying daily. I do what I can in the classroom, but it's just not enough. I want to see change in the culture of my students. When I was young I too was bullied. I care because growing up is hard enough... I want to make a difference
