Tell Us Why You Care

  • I care because people don't stand up to bullying because we can just help the people that are hurting because i don't want people to feel down of bullying



    Nick —
  • i care because i myself have been through a lot of bullying and harassment. it sometimes made me feel to why do i even exist. it made me feel low. i have been bullied all the way, even at this age.

  • I care because it hurts everyone involved either physically or emotionally so just don't bully. Bullying just brings others down and it can get really serious. Some bullying is taken way too far and should be stopped as soon as somebody notices it. I hope everyone starts to think before they do anything.



    Allison — 12
  • You don't deserve to be bullied. Nobody does. We need to put an end to it. Bullies are just looking to impress their friends, but you know you are powerful, and can stand up to that bully.




  • I've never been bullied before, and I am lucky that I haven't. By the looks of what bullying can do, it seems like it sucks to be bullied. I would suggest talking to someone if you really have to or get a counselor to help you through these tough times. But all you need to know is that it will get better.



    Hayden — 14
  • I’ve been bullied since I was 7 up until even now, no child should have to fear going to school because of their peers

Then he started to say a different lies about me to embarrass me in the front of the class. then he started making jokes about me that I have a crush and you realise that it was embarrassing for me as well as the girl in my class that I had a crush on. half of the classroom started laughing at me and I got under a desk to feel a little bit protected.
