My name is Alexandre Caron, I am from Calgary Alberta Canada and bullying has changed my life story. I know how it feels to be unwanted and lost at a place where you learn things that will get you an education further down the road. Bullying started at age 12 for me, a kid named Oliver, tortured me with negative insults, mentally changing my life values. I didn't want to tell my parents because I thought I would have been beaten up for telling on him. One day a bunch of his friends ganged up on me and started to pick on me and calling dog shit and F**k face. I started to cry and then five seconds later I yelled out F**k you seven times. A teacher came by and heard me yell F**k you and gave me detention for swearing. The bullies never got any type of punishment. luckily I moved away. I moved to Calgary from Grande Prairie Alberta. I thought this move would help my bullying problem but it didn't. I was bullied for the next 3 years in junior high. One time I had gym class and someone took my cloths cause I forgot my lock that day for gym and all my stuff was put under the shower and drenched. All I had was my gym cloths and I couldn't change. The vice principle told me to go to class, but I couldn't because of my cloths. She gave me detention for skipping class. From all of that, I realized that my bullying story isn't as bad as a lot of kids in North America. I tried to kill myself 3 times, but my friends and family stopped me. But I do want to say, kids if you don't have friends to rely on then PLEASE talk to you parents, they will help. The school will never help but you parents will love you for who you are and kids with one or two friends PLEASE ask your friends to help you and if you see a kid being bullied make a difference, help that kid by standing up to that bully. kids will be kids, be that one kid that stops bullying.
