I have only ever been bullied by my older sister. She would always make fun of me in school and tortured me when we were at home. My "friends" would end up coming over and then became friends with her and told her all my secrets. Well I'm older now and I've learned a lot and this story isn't for me...It's for my siblings, Lola and Jesse. Jesse was born with one leg shorter than the other by at least 3 inches and on that same leg he only had 3 toes on that foot. He would always wear something that covered his feet and wore a special shoe that had 3 inches at the bottom to keep his back from curving. Well when kids see this they think differently of him, they make fun of him. Lola is special. She is just as bright as anyone else in her school but learning is harder for her. She is "socially awkward." She always had trouble making friends and staying ahead in school. She was always very emotional and dramatic. I remember her not wanting to go to school one day because the kids on the bus were mean and one boy put gum in her hair. Fighting back the tears as I write this I remember watching all these videos of children killing themselves because everyone says "it will get better soon" they want it better now and don't think it will ever get better. I fear my siblings will someday think the same way. Every time I'm online and I see a cyber-bully I stand up for those being bullied and open the eyes not only to the bystandards but to those who support the bullies as well. This is my next step of action...Joining anti-bully programs to learn more, so when my siblings have problems with bullies at school I know what to do and say. I refuse to be a bystandard
