Ready to take action to address bullying? Maybe not sure how to start? As a student, bullying is something that impacts you, your peers, and your school – whether you’re the target of bullying, a witness, or the person who bullies. Bullying can end, but that won’t happen unless students, parents, and educators work together and take action.
I care because the world we live in has become more corrupt. There are no such things as getting along anymore. Left and right all we see is violence, people with no natural affection towards others, and etc. Students who want to see the world change use their voice and make it heard loud and clear. Bullying isn't okay it affects people in so many indescribable and unimaginable ways. Some people do not like speaking about the matter but it is something that needs to be fixed.

I care because I think that no one should be bullied and that it is rude and disrespectful.

You should not bully people and if you are tell an adult or teacher about what is happening.

i've never been bullied but no kid should have to get bullied because sometimes even bullying leads to self-harm and no kid should ever think of doing that or actually doing it.

Bullying can lead to a lot of bad things such as low self confidence, depressive moods, and self-harm. It's all caused by the human mind trying to cope with things. The bully is trying to cope with their own self-doubts by forcing them onto others, but the one being bullied is having their mood changed or brought down. This shouldn't be happening. It's not rational or beneficial to either side. It needs to be stopped whenever it is spotted before situations get worse.
