Bullying is always on my mind. Do you know what it’s like to have people tease you because they think you’re different? I do and it is terrible. I’m in a wheelchair and don’t feel bad about it at all. Actually, I only feel upset when bullies point out my chair and pick on me. I can do all sorts of cool things in my wheelchair, like spinning around and playing basketball! I just do things differently, and I wish Brick, Koz and Snoog would stop staring at me and making jokes.
You’re right, Hal. Jokes and stares are no fun but you always keep a positive attitude! I hope others see this and know they aren’t alone.
Definitely Hal! People can be so cruel and hurtful. I’ve been bullied for my clothes, ideas and just being too “different.” Being different is great and I hope you feel the same way!
