Believe it or not, most people get picked on and bullied because in many ways, they are far better than the bullies picking on them.

really....really???  Everyone who ever bullied you is likely bragging "oh yeah, I used to go to school with Sandra Bullock".  Thank you for being one of the well recognized faces who steps up to speak against bullying and for sending the message that the best revenge is to have a fantastic life no matter what your chosen path is.  Good for you.

The year...2013. It's such a pleasant thing for people to call others "ugly". Society still judges others by their looks. Why is it important that someone's looks mean anything? Are you better than others because they don't fit in with your ignorant expectations of cookie cutter looks only approved by yourself? Do you have a mirror in your house? You better take a look, you don't want to offend anyone
with your "homely" or "ugly" self.
By the way, your grammar is atrocious.

It just goes to show you that nothing good ever comes from being a bully. It might be all fun and games in high school, but you never know what the future holds. That same person you once bullied in high school might become your future boss one day. There goes your first impression. It's just pathetic to know that bullying is an ongoing issue and is just getting worse as the years progress. But it's not like we don't have the media to thank for all these disrespectful, judgmental and violent children. They learn about social status on tv and feel the need to mimic what they see on tv in order to feel "cool". Bottom line is, you should always treat people the same way you would like to be treated, because you never know what can happen. That same "nerd" you once picked on in high school, can actually become a very important person in the future.

Yeah I gues the grown-up bully kids are now reading and hearing about them after their shift of flipping burgers at McD's or greeting shoppers at Wal Mart!  As the Buddhists say: Forgive your enemies, but remember their names. LOL

The most I would have said to anyone in school was hello and "what" you wore that shirt!!!! Just fun stuff. As for the "girls" well had I gone to school with Sandra the words she would hear from me would all be polite and flattering how else could a guy in the 60's get a date?? An Engineer from Canada
No wonder she sold herself to the devil so easily. The weak turn to the dark side for protection every time. What a shame...V

I was always the fat girl in school. I couldnt wait to get to high school where I thought everyone was more mature. HA! The joke was on me. In high school, they bullied in bigger groups.

 I enjoyed your career, bullys are brutal I had my fair share. my favorite song of your is "the cimb"

I'm sorry to everyone who feels that bullying should be stopped, but here is my response HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, but bullying will never stop, you might feel passion about this topic, but the truth is, in every classroom, in every school there is a pecking order and that will always remain, without it, society would fail to function. Just think about a surgeon's profession, there is a hierarchy, a law office with a Partner, there is a hierarchy, the class system, you guessed it, there is a hierarchy. While I bullied, which many will find difficult to believe, and know how painful it is to have insults be hurtled at me, the stares of everyone as you are slammed into locker doors etc. while it hurts, the plain truth is, it is only school and people may not like to hear that, but it is true.

Under all that make-up she is still quite homely. Yes, I agree that bullying should NOT be tolerated, and they should be punished in the harshest manner, I'm just sayin....
