"This shows that words hurt as much as physical violence. And sometimes can hurt you even more, because it also leaves scars. But hey, just like all the things in our life, it will eventually pass. It gets better. Just remember that the one calling you names or insulting you is the weak one!"

"The words that say "Keep Rolling" on the picture means to keep moving forward. There is also a line in the middle of the picture. One side shows the girl in my drawing perfectly fine and the other side shows the girl after being bullied."

"I stumbled across this project last night, browsing the internet, and it captured my interest immediately. I will rise. What a perfect name. I definitely feel like I have risen so far from where I was as a teenager. I spent a lot of years hating myself, accepting the labels that were placed upon me by my peers. It wasn't until I graduated high school that I was able to see that a label can never define who you are. That being different, being odd, didn't make you any less worthwhile as a person."

~Straight In A Gay World, by the GSA ( Gay, Straight Alliance ) at Art and College Prep Academy
"It's about a straight teenage girl who is constantly ridiculing a gay guy at school. She wakes up one day, and everything has changed.
