Tell Us Why You Care

  • I will be a teen against bullying because it does matter how we teens feel. The bullies in this world don't understand and see the other point of view of the person they are bullying. We have to stand up to something that has taken a toll on the society, especially in this generation. We have to be able to understand that other people's feelings and emotions matter just as our own feeling and emotions do too. We have to be the ones to stand up when something is not right, and stand up for someone that matters, because don't you think you matter also?

  • I care about bullying because I would not want to be bullied so I don't want to see others being bullied.



    Gabrielle — 12
  • I care about stopping bullying because everyone was given a life because they are strong enough to live it. Everyone is a diamond, no one can break you. Everyone cries, but they don't cry because they are weak, they cry because they have been strong for too long.

Suicide and Friends
Anonymous

“Hello” was the first word I spoke to my peers, I am a Freshman in high school and I have attempted suicide multiple times due to bullying. I said hello and the person (the future bully) said hello back. We started talking and soon we had each told each other a little bit about ourselves, I am a Latino, and I am a huge nerd. This person was a very athletic and popular person. They soon began to start bullying me, first was simple name calling, it didn’t bother me too much, then the racial slurs, threats, social humiliation, and it just got worse and worse every day. I’d go to my school about it and they’d say things were being done but nothing really happened. Eventually, it became too much for me to handle, I kept feeling like I was worthless, a burden, and I tried to kill myself. Word spreads fast in high school and eventually, people learned about my attempt. At first, I thought that this would lead to more people bullying me, but it had a reverse effect, almost as if me nearly ending my life was a wake-up call to the real world. The year is now almost over, and while it has been rough, I now stick up for those who I see getting bullied.
