It all started when I was in the fourth grade. Sarah, Kate, and I had known each other since the first grade and we were psyched to be in the same class once again. Kate and I had always hated each other and to be honest, I have no idea why. Kate had just started letting the hatred show. She started calling me stupid and a waste of space and always seemed to find a way to get closer best to Sarah. A long with that she would punch and kick and pinch me. I couldn't take it. You hear the stories of bullying and think, "if that happens to me I can handle it." But, I couldn't. I didn't want to deal with it on my own. I told the teacher and instead of taking action she made us have an immediation. I go to a private school so they try and make it as "safe" as possible for the students. So they took us both out to the hallway and I told my side of the story (truth) and she told hers (pure lies, well she used the right names). This whole soap opera of her bullying and going to immediation continued for about 3 years until we got into middle school. For 3 years, every day felt like a battle that I had no chance of winning. Being told that your stupid and worthless made me feel like I was. So, not only was she battling me, I was battling myself. But, it's behind me. My bullying story isn't over yet, but I learned that just because someone says your stupid doesn't make you stupid. Thats like saying if some says that the Grand Canyon is Niagara Falls, it's Niagara Falls. No matter what anyone say you are worth it and you are amazing. You may feel lonely and worthless, but that feeling doesn't last forever. YOU ARE WORTH IT! Send that message to people and hopefully it will last forever. My Name is Hannah, and that's my story.
