    I Survived. I was never a typical male child,

    outgoing, adventurous, active in sports. I was more quiet, curious and sensitive. I didn't have a strong bond with my father. He was there and did things like coaching the Y-group football team for a couple of seasons, etc.; but for some strange reason he always seemed to be...

    My Pride Would Become My Worst Enemy

    Bullying has taken its toll on the lives of a mere 4,400 students every year. One of the main key reasons is that the administrators do not do anything about it, or even purposely take the bully's sides. It gets pathetic. Let me tell you exactly how someone's pride can turn from...
