I do know a victim of bullying. She's a friends daughter in high school. She ultimately started online schooling. I feel so badly for her. Kids are cruel.

I was bullied some while I was in grade school. I was a very quiet little girl and the kids picked on me on the bus. I was afraid to tell anyone. There was never anything real serious that happened but I remember they made me cry.

Heavenly Hugg said...

I was bullied every day in high school. People used to put items in my hair.. Staples, glue, boogers, cheetoes, you name it. They put paint in my shoes and cut up my purse and my hair. They cut up my clothes, called me names, pushed me, hit me, spread nasty rumors... Yep, it sucked! But I have faith in a wonderful God now and I know that some people don't understand God's love. Thank you for the awesome giveaway.
