Life lessons stop bullying

Who has ever been bullied?

"I was bullied because I was in and out of school a lot, and kids didn’t know why, and it was for cancer,” says 14-year-old,Kajmere Houchins.

"The way I looked, the way I dressed, and the way my hair looked,” says 11-year-old Gabrielle Caruse.

"One time on Facebook, one of my old friends put up an ugly list and I was on it,” says 12-year-old Aisha White.

"On the inside you’re hurt, but on the outside, you have to be like, 'I didn’t care about it or anything,’ ” says 15-year-old Keenan Thomas Marshall.

"I told my mom I wasn’t ever going to go to school again,” says 14-year-old Nadja Williams.

When asked if it is harder to be bullied to your face or on the Internet, the group of adolescents admitted that cyber bullying was worse.

"I believe people bully because they’re bullied or they feel unaccepted but like you don’t know what type of damage you could be causing to that person,” says 12-year-old Teague Rogers.

"I think it ends by everyone just getting together and just putting a stop to everything,” says 14-year-old Kammal Washington.

If you are being bullied, you can find help online at www.stopbullying.gov.

The site offers resources and information for kids and parents on all types of bullying.
