    I want to stop bullying because I have seen what it has done and how hard it is for others. My best friend and I are doing something to stop it though. Thanks to this website, our house master approved it now that we are the leaders of an after school program and it will be starting in a few weeks. We are only freshmen yet we have the heart and soul to help other people!! This will stop one day and I'm gonna be a part of that!

    Bullying should be stopped. I've been bullied myself and I know a few of my friends have been as well, both in person and through the internet. Most of it took place my freshman year in high school, but some of it was my junior year, when this guy posted a blog on MySpace about my friends and I. Bullying is wrong and it's not cool. You have to tell someone, whether it's you being bullied, your friends, or even just someone in the hallway. It has to be stopped before something really bad happens.

    I am currently being bullied. I receive text messages from unknown numbers calling me names and telling me to go die or to kill myself. The bullies made a fake instagram account of me calling me fat and other rude names. I became a member of STOMP Out Bullying because I want to raise awareness that bullying shouldn't be taken lightly and that we can come together to make a difference. Bullying hurts, and it's a very real situation that needs to be stopped. If you're getting bullied remember to Stay Strong and don't give up. You can get through it.

    My story has a very positive ending that can be hopeful for current bullying victims, so stay tuned (or skip to the end). When I was growing up in New York, I was bullied from about 4th grade through 8th in public school, I transferred to a Catholic HS and that was so much better, no bullying problem in HS. But during my middle school years, it was horrible, and this was before social media, AOL Instant Messenger was just starting to get popular, so I'm very thankful that my experience was before cyberbullying started happening. They bullied me because I was overweight, not very athletic or good at sports, I was good at math and science, it was more than 10 years ago so I don't even remember completely. I do remember the girl I had a crush on in 6th and 7th grade turning me down and, while she was never actively a bully, she sat back and didn't do or say anything while others bullied me even over that. I never wanted to harm myself, that thought never crossed my mind. There were times that I wanted to harm others, and I was scared. I terrified myself one time when I felt I truly understood the motives behind the Columbine High School shooting. The school administration didn't take it seriously because it was mostly verbal bullying, they figured it can't be bullying if nobody is getting physically injured. One guidance counselor took the problem seriously, and so did my parents, but nobody in higher authority at the school bothered to listen. The public schools in my area are set up that you're basically with the same group of kids from kindergarten through 12th grade. So after 8th grade I transferred out to Catholic high school, and that was one of the best things I ever did. Here's the hopeful part: Within 2 months of graduating college, I got probably the best job offer I could imagine, so I moved out of my mom and dad's place, moved 1/4 the way around the planet, and now live in Hawaii and working in direct support of the brave men and women in the armed forces. Want to know whatever happened to those who used to bully me? They still live with their parents, hanging out still with only each other, not being productive at all in society. Some have served time in jail on either drug charges or DWI. And here I am, of everyone my age I knew growing up, I'm one of the most successful. Oh, I almost forgot, I also have an amazing girlfriend, and I couldn't be happier with how my life is today.

    I want to stomp out bullying because from second grade till I was in ninth grade this Girl bullied me so bad we had to change my phone number five times and change schools. She called me mean names, told lies to get me beat up and and in trouble in school. In fifth grade her mom was killed and it got worse. Her brothers and sisters that were 20-23 yrs old were picking on me then in about eighth grade when i thought i couldnt take it anymore her dad was killed and for three months i really thought she would kill me for all the pain she was enduring. Finally when I moved and switched schools it stopped. I would see here around town but a couple years later she has three kids and gets beaten daily by her boyfriend. She told me she was sorry because she now knows how i felt. An I dont want anybody to go thru what i went thru. I had no friends beacuse they didnt want to go thru this too!!
