Tell Us Why You Care

  • I have been bullied for like 2 years. I was in eighth grade when this whole thing started, My classmates, whom I had known for an entire year started being mean on me. A boy hit me with a desk and whenever, since that day on, I cried, everyone just made fun of me. I didn't listen to my parents and I didn't want to go to school, their words hurt so much. I was also linked up with boys I was friends with. I hate it. I freaking hate it. I don't deserve this. I've had freaking enough. People made fun of my teeth and my face. Just because I was different from them. I am choosing to be super outspoken about this problem.

  • I care because I have been bullied before in school. I really hate to see people down or sad because I put myself in their shoes, which means to feel how other people feel.

  • I've got a friend who was bullied. He was injured everyday, and nobody paid attention to this.I wanted to help him so much, and I was angry about the bullies. so I said him:"You should speak to the principal, and you shouldn't pay attention to them. They are just stupid."
