I Care Because

My grandson was being bullied and the school never did anything. My daughter moved to another county just to keep my 8 yr old grandson safe. He was being attacked on the school bus also.

Bullying is not okay. Even little comments people write about you on the bathroom wall at school is not okay. I have been bullied before, probably not as harshly as a lot of people have, but I know what it feels like when your world is crashing around you and you have no idea what is going to happen next. I have seen people who have just centered their world around what people say about them and it is tragic. Bullying seems to make people feel better about themselves because the person doing the bullying is uncapable of facing their own problems. It is terrible what people do to get away from their bullying. Remember it is never your fault if you are getting bullied. I AM AGAINST BULLYING COMPLETELY!

My kids matter as well as every other parents kids. And one of my kids is on the Autism Spectrum - the invisible syndrome. We all need to care and reteach our kids some of the values we were taught.

i get bullied a lot like everyday i dont want to go to school but my mom said i have to. i tell my parents about me being bullied i say that they make fun of my weight, clothes, and ect. my parents said it was true and made me feel even worse i feel lonely all the time because no one likes me at school and at home no one wants to be around me, im alone in this world and it makes me regret being born. I have a really great life i mean i shouldn't complain but i have no friends and alone all the time the internet and video games doesn't help anymore. i turn to music to help me thats when demi lovato is my role model i feel lonely a lot but not as much because of her :)

Many of my friends killed themselves because of the bullying. I am not the same now. That is why I am against this.

I'm a girl, 17 years old. My friends well almost everyone around me keeps on calling me adopted. Altough it isnt tre it still hurts hearing that kind of things especially when its about your personal life. People think Im adopted just because I dont look like my father. Well how would they even know if they didnt even seen my dad when he was younger. Just becase he's swedish should  also have to look white and too liberated too fit in? I dont think so. I sometimes loose face and be discouraged for all the negative comments i get from other people.

KakashiI, a 17-year-old from Los Angeles, writes: “I have been bullied because my love for anime is ‘too extreme.’ People have picked on me for the way I run, the things I like, and the clothes I wear. It is not fair to judge me based on my love for Japanese culture. I care because I feel everyone should be able to enjoy what they love and what they do without the cruel judgments of ‘normies.’”
