So,I was shopping in WALMART yesterday looking for some kiwi fruit when out of the corner of my ears(my grandma's saying)I heard some high school freshman picking at another girls looks and she was chubby too.It stuck in my craw and maybe I'm just nosy and need to butt out but,grrrr I hate bullying!!!Sooooo,I stuck my nose in there and asked the crying girl "How does that make you feel when they do that?Sniffing she said Like killing myself!!!!The 3 girls stood wide eyed and looking embarrassed as possible.I replied thats awful and nobody should be bullied.They apologized to Karen and she was smiling when I introduced myself.I said :You can make a difference in somebodies life.Instead of hurting another person,talk to them and learn something.Pain and hurt can lead to awful things....suicide,shootings,alcohol and drugs to cope.And it makes her feel worthless and degraded.The latest fashions dont make us a better person and WE NEVER KNOW WHO WE ARE PICKING ON!!!Anyway when I left the 4 girls were sitting in McDonalds having ice cream and laughing...I waved and all 4 came running out and hugged me.We are sorry! the 3 offenders told me we will always remember this day and be better today and in the future!I'm glad because I took a chance butting in but if I had woke up today and looked in the paper and read"Local high school teen commits suicide"I would be regretting Not stepping in!!I made a difference and you can too!!hugs sp!
