Tell Us Why You Care

  • At school we were going to the bathroom. When I was finished I started washing my hands. I was in the line waiting for the dryer and all of a sudden a girl splashed water on me. The thing that made me want to cry the most was because she did it purposely. Luckily I didn't cry and just waited for the dryer to dry my shirt and pants. To be honest I never told the teacher or my parents. I let it slide, but today I think I'm going to tell my parents that I've been getting bullied by a guy in gym class. He always tries to hit me. I don't know why! Today I came home and went straight to my room. I was crying almost for an hour. So today is the day that I stand up for myself.

  • We all should treat others how we want to be treated. To bully someone is a coward's way to gain attention because of their own
    insecurities. Many think being mean and bullying others is funny - when really it's one of the saddest things one person can be to another.
    Speaking up and showing support for those being bullied is what we all need to do!

  • I care because I know how it feels to be bullied. Even if you don't have friends someone someday is going to make you happy and hopeful, I probably don't know you in real life but I love you and I hope you find that one person (that will be your friend and actually care about you). Live life at the fullest and STAY ALIVE!! Bye! *waves goodbye*

  • I think that bullying is disgusting & unacceptable as other societal or global issues. As someone who has had a fair share of bullying growing up, I know exactly how it feels & how detrimental it is to someone's self esteem. Its so important to realise that bullying isn't a joke & is actually a huge issue. We must not only raise awareness but also change the perceptions of youth & adults alike. We can't afford to lose any more lives because of bullying. BULLYING IS OBVIOUSLY NOT OKAY.

  • I care because I don't like when people get hurt

  • Don't bully! It is not right for other people to suffer because of something that might be going on in your life, that is personal.
