When I was in middle school I was severely bullied and would come home with bruises--my parents had no idea until recently--I kept to myself back then, I'm 37 now, and I thought I should put my voice out there about how bullying causes damage to kids long after they're out of school.
I started writing in middle school to get the anger and frustration of what I went through and it helps me today. I use writing today on my blog to talk about bullying and what I went through.
I watched the movie with my son and thought about how I would've felt then if this movie had come out. I would have been ecstatic. I want to do my part to help kids who are bullied in one form or another.
No kid should be fearful of going to school or worrying about telling their parents about the abuse they go through.
