i have been bullied and have witnessed bullying. bullying is a massive thing and it needs to stop. to the person bullying it may seem like a laugh, but the person who is bulllying it can have serious affects on their life. lets stand up together and fight bullying. Try to help people befor it gets to far, or too late.

No one and i mean no one should be bullied i care because iv been through it and in all honesty i don't think its fair to people to be put down called names ect. People are different if we were all the same then this world would be so boring everything and everyone doing the same thing day after day.I care because im a caring person also because i know hpow it feels to be builled it makes you feel horrible people should be there own people and not someone who someone says for you to be. Be yourself and be pround to be yourself remeber the only person you should be trying to impress is your self.

I care because my friends and people that is get bullied. i was bullying at my old school because i was different. i was so upsad.  i like   Demi Lovato becuse she help and she was then. Bullying is not cool and funny.  PLEASE STOP BULLYING TODAY, AND SAVE A LIFE.

Breanna, 13, aus

I was personally incessantly bullied throughout my formative years. We were poor so I oftened had to dress in hand me downs I am also missing my left forearm. It was mainly other girls who bullied me by means of "gossip and social ostracization". I also experienced some very agressive sexual harassment by young men who viewed me as "easy prey". In so many ways I owe a debt of gratitude to my former tormentors because it was their lack of compassion towards me that shaped my present identity, Bullying is not a "victimless crime" and normalizing this type of behavior is the worst way to address the problem. creative solutions must be found but this is not possible without widespread community cooperation.
