Tell Us Why You Care

  • Some people think that when there is bullying in action, its just teasing. Teens need to realize that it can harm someone mentally. You need to stand up to bullies and tell them that it is wrong.

  • I care because. I have. Been bullied before and I'm still. Am because people. Talk about. The. Way I look dress or even talk. I'm new to the. School I was born in Alabama rise in Ohio. Once I came home. I felt alone. Everyone wanted to fight me talk about me even get me in trouble it's really hard. Being. Bullied. I feel like everyday its something. New

  • I care because I have been bullied before in school. I really hate to see people down or sad because I put myself in their shoes, which means to feel how other people feel.

  • I care because I have been on the receiving side of bullying, from 4th grade up until 8th grade. I was physically bullied, and mocked, and rumors about me were spread, and I received threatening letters, and my school did nothing about it. I care because those affected by bullying should have someone to talk to and somewhere to go that will make them feel safe, loved, and worth it. If we come together as one, we can be a great life-preserver which is cast out into the ocean of bullying to save those who are drowning.



    Alexmarie — 16
  • I care, because making others feel bad won't make yourself feel better. Does making someone feel like they're worth nothing make you feel like you do? Perhaps you yourself have been targeted before, but is targeting others the correct response and solution? Or are you just turning yourself into the bully that bullied you?

When I meet new people, they often ask or pick up on my accent. Often asking if I’m from America or where it is from. Truth is, I am not from America and never have been but that is besides the point. At school, I am being bullying for it. It used to be worse than it is now but seriously no one at my school even understands what an American accent sounds like because they’re all idiots. I’ve checked with actual American people or my friends online and they don’t think it’s American. Not that I would have a problem if it was. The kids in my school bully me verbally. They often call me names. “American Cat” being the main one. (Because I like cats.) I don’t like it. It used to be worse but since most of the guys who did do that are now in different classes, since I’ve managed to make sure I move up in my sets, It’s not as bad. From time to time I do get a comment though and it can be incredibly frustrating.
