I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I was bullied when I was younger. It happens, especially when you’re one of the youngest and smallest kid in the class, a bit of a stickler of the rules, and of course one of the smartest. It all stopped when I got older, bigger, and better social skills. Living in the small, peaceful South helps too. But bullying comes in all shapes and size, and it’s not always the big jock or the popular cheerleader (they were one of my closest friends actually). It could be that innocent looking nerd, a plain old average student, a parent even, and surprisingly the disabled (that’s a whole other story you need to read). The point is anybody could be a bully, and its impact is devastating. Many people had committed suicide others went off the deep end and committed homicide, many were killed during the acts of bullying. It’s all too much. I just well up inside whenever I hear another victim lost because of it. Nobody deserves abuse.
