  • I remember when I was bullied in the seventh grade it was so bad with all of the name calling and people tripping me. She would call me stupid and ugly and that nobody likes me. The bullying was really bad so I ended up going with homeschooling now I am in the eleventh grade. I wish I just went up to the bully and confronted her but I was too scared. Now I just want to help people. We all have feelings and they get hurt sometimes too.

  • I was walking and seen a kid getting bullied. I instantly told a teacher. She helped them and the bully was in trouble. I care because my older brother used to hit and pick on me constantly when I was little. Now I am taller than him and he don't mess with me much anymore! I know it was just brother stuff back then but I still used to get hurt sometimes when he wrestled me way back then. We are now best friends and have each others backs through the rest of our lives.

  • In the world, there are numerous of people who are living with us. Each of them are really important so that it is also a wrong situation when someone ignores or making fun of them. We should respect each others' appearances, personalities, talents and also there living environments.
