I Care Because

I was a victim all throughout elementary and some of middle school. It hurts because I never/still don't understand why I was a victim. A lot of people stood by and did nothing or joined in. I told my mom but she just brushed it off as did my teacher. And I never wanted to bring it up again because  I just thought my problems were never important and everybody experienced this. This caused  severe depression and my self-esteem was/is terribly low. I wish I knew how to forget about my experiences and I want to help prevent it from happening to anyone else.

I care because I have a lot of friends that got bullied and I stood up for them and I get teased for it and get called names from a lot of people and I'm trying a lot of ways to stop bullying, All the time when I see someone getting pushed around or being called something that is not nice I report it and I have been awarded at my school for the most person who stood up and I did not want the award because I am doing what I want to stop. (Before you say something or do something to someone think of what you would feel like if you got called that or if someone did that to you.)
