Everyday has been hard for my son Mikey. He has been bullied since his first grade year. He is now moving up to fourth grade next year. I have often wondered why this keeps happening to him. I have only come to one conclusion. He is different. He has two mothers, his favorite color is pink, loves his long hair, and his earring he is super friendly to everyone, to even those who have picked on him. I do not see him as weak but a kind soul. He cries often and almost always wants to stay home from school because he has no real friends. Even those who have been around him also being picked on would change sides and join in to harm him. I am sad to know my son has no one he can be buddies with. Not even one sleep over or anyone to share in the simple boy joys as to playing video games or just playing catch. My wife and myself have said to him: "we love you for being the way you are and it doesn't matter what anyone thinks, its what you think that matters." I love my son and I have done almost everything to make sure he is safe. I am a protective mother and I would bend over backwards for him. I have called the cops and they have told me: "no attack is random and something had to be done on his end for him to be bullied" I could not believe what I heard from out law enforcement. I just keep hoping that with years to come something will be done. I keep hoping the schools will educate on the matter to help prevent it. To teach the young children that what they say and do has an effect on everyone. I feel for all the children who suffer from bullying and I send my heart to all the families who are in the same boat. I have only one other thing to say to everyone. "Keep being yourself no matter what anyone tells you. You are beautiful inside and out. We are all different no two people are the same. Love yourself and keep your head up, someday things will be better just keep smiling." <3
