All of my life i have been bullied for on reason or another. In school it was because i was fat or that my clothes werent in style. I grew up very poor and never had much. Many times i didnt want to go to school just so i wouldnt have to face ridicule. When i started to stand up for myself it was always me who got into the most trouble and not the instigaor. I thought about suicide daily. Even as an adult i have still been bullied about my weight issues. I am 26 now and a father of 3 of my own biological children and 3 step children. Now it is them that constantly are bullied. When we tell the schools they do nothing about it. There is always a meeting and they say they will stop it but the bulling continues. What i have learned and been able to pass onto my children is hope. The hope that through all the bullying that there will be those who will stand against the wrong. Who will go to battle for what is right. If it wasnt for the friends i made that are now considered so close they are like family i probably would have commited suicide years ago. I have started a petition to be sent to the United States Congress to stop bullying. I want there to be actual consequences not only to bullying students who prey on the weak but consequences for teachers principals counselors super intendents and everyone involved to be held accountable also. Its time that enough is enough. No more of our children need to go through this pain and no more of our children need to be taken from us because they couldnt take the abuse anymore. For too long us as a nation have sat back and let this problem escalate. Only we can stop this.
