I Care Because…

  • I have a friend and he is bullied. People call him fat and call him names not only do they do it in person but also over phone. I hate to see him sad or mad. I would love for them to stop. I want to help kids believe in themselves and to let no one change or judge them that they are to be themselves. I feel so sorry for him and if I am around him they will ask me why I am friends with fatty.

  • I think that bullying is disgusting & unacceptable as other societal or global issues. As someone who has had a fair share of bullying growing up, I know exactly how it feels & how detrimental it is to someone's self esteem. Its so important to realise that bullying isn't a joke & is actually a huge issue. We must not only raise awareness but also change the perceptions of youth & adults alike. We can't afford to lose any more lives because of bullying. BULLYING IS OBVIOUSLY NOT OKAY.

  • I care because bullying has affected my cousin, and he could not focus on school and at home. In school, he couldn't do any class work and at home he wouldn't eat anything, which caused his parents to worry.

  • I care about bullying because it could affect other people besides the victim. For example, it affected me when one of my classmates was cyber bullied. It was annoying for me because everyone was distracted by this and they wouldn't stop talking about it. Therefore my grades suffered.

  • I care, because making others feel bad won't make yourself feel better. Does making someone feel like they're worth nothing make you feel like you do? Perhaps you yourself have been targeted before, but is targeting others the correct response and solution? Or are you just turning yourself into the bully that bullied you?

  • I will be a teen against bullying because it does matter how we teens feel. The bullies in this world don't understand and see the other point of view of the person they are bullying. We have to stand up to something that has taken a toll on the society, especially in this generation. We have to be able to understand that other people's feelings and emotions matter just as our own feeling and emotions do too. We have to be the ones to stand up when something is not right, and stand up for someone that matters, because don't you think you matter also?

  • It's sad how many people don't realize how their words can affect people, or even they do know... and just don't care. I care because I didn't know until it was too late & I lost my best friend.

  • I care because a student used to bully me I told my mom and nothing worked you should never bully someone who never bully you. If you bully you're going to hurt that person's feelings. Do not hurt the other person's feelings. If you do not want do be bullied then don't bully others trust me if you don't bully then you are not going to bully by no one.
