That is wonderful. I, too, was bullied as a child, but I often didn't pay mind to it (which, I think, made me an easy target.)

Today, these bullies are murderers. For every national story that results from bullying, there are hundreds more local/state stories that result in the same conclusion (youth suicide) from bullies. My sister-in-law had the unfortunate experience of knowing a young man who chose to "escape" the slings of torment.

I was bullied in school, though for very different reasons (I was just the "weird kid."). God bless Chris and all the high-profile people who are speaking out against this.
