My oldest son and his school put on a play about bullying one evening. I went and recorded the whole play. I knew nothing about the play until the day before, so I was shocked with the content. The teacher said at the end of the play that each student was allowed to pick the part that they wanted to perform. Each student put a little of their own experiences into their part. Needless to say, I was shocked and angered when I realized that my son chose the part of a bullied teen because he had been bullied his entire academic life. In the play, he dies from a bad heart. My heart died when I found out what was going on with my own son. He never let on that he was being bullied. I'm not ashamed to say that I cried during the entire play. Then I got angry. First with him for not telling us, then at the fact that he was hurting so much. As someone who had been bullied all my life for one reason or another, I knew what he felt. Now, I'm trying to put out to my community that we need to put a stop to this, without any success. I've tried going through law enforcement, which is laughable at best. Please help me and my son get the message out to our community. Thank you.
