The bullying first started when I was in 2nd grade. My family had just lost our house due to foreclosure, and we were homeless because of that. It was posted in the news paper, and parents would tell their kids, who were also my classmates. I got made fun of all the time. It continued on for the whole school year. It continued in 3rd grade, but it got even worse in 4th. The kids formed a "kicking circle" and pulled me into it, and they kicked me, spit on me, slapped me, and anything else they could do. The teachers just walked past it, watched it, and some even laughed at it. I hated school! Bullying continued through 5th and 6th grade, but it got worse when I got a short hair cut at the end of 5th grade. Everyone asked me if I was a boy or a girl; they told me i looked like a boy; that I must be gay if I have a hair cut like that. I wanted to die. The bullying continued through 7th, 8th, and 9th grade. Hopefully it stops next year in 10th grade. I've attempted suicide 9 times because of bullying and everything else that's going on in my life. I have a few people in my life that stand up for me, and even confront the bullies. Even one of my former teachers stands up for me! It's so amazing actually having people support you, and stand up for you.
