When I was a kid I was lucky. I was innately popular. It wasn't something that I did, it just was. My mom noticed that kids seemed to gravitate toward me and she asked if there were kids that I "left out". She then went on to tell me how she was bullied as a kid and that, as a popular kid it was my responsibility to make sure that others felt safe. Because my peers listened to me, it was my responsibility to make sure I spoke for those that didn't have a strong voice. Heavy stuff for a little kid but to this day, I recognize bullying everywhere and something inside me stirs to action. It takes everyone to stand up and say enough, especially those who are lucky enough to be respected for no good reason at all (like me).
