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.
The lives of people like us matter in the future and they could change a whole lot if one thing like bullying happens to them.

I,ve been bullied many times before and it can be taken really far, so I hope that our future generations will help fight against bullying and save the lives of all the children that harm themselves because they are being bullied.

People cannot control the things they get bullied for and they are most likely already insecure

I've been bullied for years and I just ignore it. I got picked on because I am fat. I'm like look I already know but you calling it out is irrelevant but I know why they bully. They bully to make them feel better about themselves because they just don't become bullies something happens to them that makes them want to bully to feel better. I challenge all of you to go up to your bully and tell him/her "Have a good day" and if they say something nice back then that's great but if its a bad comment ignore it and continue on your way. Life is too short to hide in fear of someone.

bullying isn't nice it comes to a point the at times it feels like you aren't needed and your friends hurt your feelings constantly.
At age 12 all I wanted to be was myself. I had a few friends and was starting my final year at my school. Everything seemed fine at first but all of a sudden my life fell apart. All I did was score badly on a test. I’m overall a really good student and I get good marks. I managed to fix back the pieces and everything went back to normal but it didn’t last. Things fell apart again a couple of months later. I got harassed and tormented. I was called racist even though I wasn’t. As a member of the Asian community, I do get bullied a lot. It’s still currently ongoing and I’m desperate for support.
