I was called every name you can think of. And not the good ones. I was laughed at and made fun of growing up. Tonight, I talk about growing up being bullied.

From the way I looked, to the way I spoke, to the house I lived in, nothing was off limits to the bullies.  From the first day I entered first grade at Verdunville Elementary to the day I graduated Centerville High School, school-life was a chore.  Actually, some days were horrible.

Bullying is for people who have no confidence at all.  Everyone currently being bullied, remember, bullies are scared of you because you have something they don't.  And they're jealous of you.  That's why they bully you.  Don't let them get you down.  Don't let their words steal a moment of your happiness.  In the end, they will lose.
