My name is Sarah and I am 23 years old. I myself have been bullied throughout middle school and early high school. I know how much it hurts to be constantly be reminded that you are going to be made fun of every day. I know how much you don't want to show others that they are the reason you cry. I know what it's like to be afraid to move on to tomorrow not knowing what else people are going to do with you. This problem still exists in my family, my 13 year old brother is such a loving, caring, smart human being. When he was 3 our dad had passed away. My little brother, his name is Tyler, has grown up with all women. He wants so bad to have friends but can't make them because they always criticize him. They call him a faggot, gay, traintracks because of his braces and retainer, he has been punched in the jaw twice on the bus, coming home with blood on his face trying to hide what had happened. He was afraid to speak up and tell us what was going on because he felt if other kids found out that he said anything he would get hurt. My little brother has confessed that he has thought about strangling himself with his Xbox controller and from time to time still thinks if he kills himself that would be the easy way out. I have told him he doesn't need to be someone he's not to fit in although the teasing and whatnot may not stop he needs to know that he has his family and we accept him and love him for who he is. my little brother confides in me and he is a truly amazing person. I want him and everyone to know that you don't have to change who you are to be truly happy, that this too shall pass. Being who you are is what makes you beautiful and unique. I am doing this for him and all the others out there being bullied. and as far as the movie goes, when I brought this movie home after purchasing it, Tyler cried he instantly felt that this movie needs to be shown in schools, that he took the movie to his school and had his guidance counselor watch it. and hopefully this movie will be viral in all schools around my county. Like I said I'm doing this for my little brother, one of my best friends, a person who deserves much more than he receives.
