I Care Because

I dont know where to share about bullying so i come here.
When i was kindergarden,i always get bullied.I was group with  6 peoples.In the group,there was the 2 bullies.I try to be friend with them like i drew something for them but they tear it but i try to think positive.
I keep this matter silent to myself.The point is i try to be brave every step of the way.Every step of your life surely there problem like bullying or whatever.If i have a problem i will always think that every step of my life,there's surely a problem and there's alway a way out.

Bullies scar people for life and I want our youth to make this world a better place not worse.

As an ongoing bullying victim no one should have to suffer like I do.  I have a hearing problem and people hate me for it. But bullying victims out there like me you are not alone and justice will come for you one day.

I think that bullying should be stopped because it's just cruel

Rissa , 13, PA

No one was ever there for me and  people came along and pretending to be a friend but they only choose me as their target. I endured it all by myself just shutting myself off from the world until I developed a hatred for everyone. I started cutting, taking prescribed drugs,poisoning myself, jumping off my roof and hanging myself pretty much everything suicidal. I recently found someone an actual friend that cares and I feel i should just reach out and help others who have experienced bullying.

I want bullying to stop just because we are unique and different doesnt mean we can be picked on or pushed around!

MaisieBlewitt, 11, StalyBridge

I was bullied  back in middle school .I was being bulliped for being different than everyone else.i could take being bullied for being different.i made a suggestion to my mother about me bme being home schooled.And she didn't know i was being bullied then.so i finally found the courage to tell my mother that I was being bullied.

JOsiah, 17, Ca

I care because I know someone who rencently commited suicide after being bullied. She was a great girl, who was always happy. She was cyber bullied until it was too late.  Lastly, I was also bullied, I was called ugly, fat and other gross names and to this day, two years later, I'm still affected by it, it still hurts me. I think every teen should get involed with this great cause.
