Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because bullying is not a good thing to people. I know this because a few people i know committed suicide due to bullying and my sister almost did as well.

  • I care because bullying victims can remember that terrible memory forever also, they can do self-harm.

  • I care about stopping bullying, because it can really hurt some one and the way they think. You should never be mean to someone because of how they look, dress, act, or even present themselves. Give someone a smile because you never know when they might need it!!!!

  • I am bullied by a group of kids because I'm small. Kids used to like me but now because of one bully all the kids that used to be my friends all bully me or ignore me now. I had 2 open heart surgeries because of chd. I also have ADHD and dyslexia. Kids call me midget, hobbit, retarded & stupid. When I grew my hair for 4 years to donate for kids with cancer I was always called a girl, or told to change my gender. I thought it would stop when I cut my hair, but it didn't. I always go to the teachers but the kids lie, and I'm blamed as part of the problem like I asked for it. I try to ignore them and say stop, but they never stop. I get mad and sometimes will say something mean back. My voice is all I have because I'm little. I get pushed, thrown against lockers, my stuff stolen or thrown away. I have one more year because I wanted to graduate junior high at my school. I earned it after everything I put up with. I think I need to switch schools. I'm tired , and my parents are tired of fighting with school and writing reports. I guess the bullies win.

  • We all bleed red, thus are all human, thus are all family. While you don't always get along with your family, you always know deep down that you love and care about them.

Words do hurt
Anonymous

growing up i have always looked down on myself and the stuff that i accomplish. i have always excepted being second best which is how the bullying started. Being called names it have always been stuff that i had to adjust to for three years until i said enough is enough. its not just words. words do hurt and calling someone stuff just to make yourself feel better is horribly wrong.
