Hi, my name is Shelby. I'm 25 and this is an apology. Growing up, I was always the one being bullied. I would usually befriend the kids no one else wanted to be friends with, so I was shunned as well. But in 6th grade I transferred to a new school, and that changed. I suddenly had a group of friends that weren't considered outcasts and I was desperate to be accepted. So when the science teacher opted (as a discouragement to passing notes) to display notes he found or caught, I saw an opportunity to be funny and I took it. I forged a note, supposedly from one of the "weird" kids to one of the popular girls, confessing love. I never meant to be cruel. So when the other boys started abusing him I panicked. I was scared of the backlash that would fall on my shoulders, and I didn't step up as I should have to declare it false. I was immature and honestly I have regretted it nearly every day since. I don't remember your name. I think it was Thomas but I'm not sure, it's been so long. But I'm sorry. I am so sorry. It's been over ten years and I still think about this. I doubt you'll see this but I hope you can forgive me.
