People had so many reasons to bully me when I was in school. I was overweight, I was smart, and I was Jewish. I got bullied once or twice by someone and then I would go and tell someone of authority about it. I couldn't stand it. When I was much younger, I was bullied by a girl in my Girl Scout troop. I started telling my mom about it and she changed my troop that I went to when the troop leader did nothing about it. I got called a "Dirty Jew" once, when I got off the bus, and I told my mother and she went to the school immediately. That kid never talked to me again about it.
But I'm a lucky one. I got bullied and picked on here and there but I knew that I could go and tell somebody and something would be done about it. That's not the case for a lot of kids these days and it's really sad. I feel their pain and I HATE the fact that we are putting people in charge of our children for 7 to 8 hours a day and they could really care less what happens to them when we tell them about these issues. It needs to stop and it needs to stop now. If you don't care about children, get out of the school system, immediately.
