When I was a kid I was picked on and harassed by a group a kids and they made my life hell. I was verbally abused sometime physically. I knew I was different and that was OK with me. The more i stood up to them the worse it got. I wasn't athletic, I was quiet, my family did not have a lot of money, I was little. Over time I learned how to shut them out and ignore it. I started to make friends who would help stand up for me and i learned how to stand up for myself. As I got older I got taller and I wasn't the little kid anymore. After I left high school it was my younger sisters' turn. She was picked up by this one boy and I went to the principal about it and nothing was done. I hate to say it but most schools look the other way. They do not want to get involved they would rather just brush it off and that is what made it worse. I am an adult now and it breaks my heart every time I see something on the new about some kid who took their life because of bullying. Shame on you to who does it. We as a community can stop this and it will get better.
