    I hate bullies. I remember once,

    my so called 'best friends' were beating up a little kid. They were laughing and asked me to join them. I was horrified and was in a dilemma, tell the teacher to help the kid and betray my 'best friends' in the process, or leave them be and let the kid suffer. I remembered that...

    Tyler "Tyrant" Wesson

    When I was 11, in the fifth grade, I remember there being one almighty 13-year-old whom everyone was horror-stricken by. He was the school bully, who was held back twice in the 3rd grade. He was like the giant of all 7th graders, every single day he got in trouble, and in every...

    Playground Battlefield

    The playground in my old elementary school had small pebbles instead of sand. The pebbles were even all over of the jungle gym, the grass, everywhere. Being the little weirdo I was, quite a few kids taunted me. They’d throw those blasted pebbles at me and I’d take...

    So, lately I've been feeling pretty numb,

    if that's how to describe it. I've been thinking a lot about things? Especially the one thing that happened last week. I stood up to a guy who was pretty much bullying my friend. He had previously and not for the first time stolen money from me and my friend as well as other...

    I Hate Bullies

    I'm Proud Of What I Did.

    When I first moved to kelowna, I knew no one. I spent my summer alone and missing my friends, and waiting until school started. Once September came around, I was nervous and couldn't bring myself to be excited at all. School started, I had no friends and I was fine with that...

    Story of My Life

    It seems bullies think I'm an easy mark. Maybe it's my stature (I'm 5'8"). Maybe it's my easy going nature. Maybe it's because I befriend the "freaks". Regardless, injustice turns my gut & I can't stand bullies of any sort. Just last week, I was living with a...

    She was being mean to me every day so I stood up to her finally and pointed out the flaws of her own plan. I embarrassed her in front of her friends and she left me alone, and eventually dropped out of school. I feel bad about that, but it was a reaction to the way she'd been...

    The Strength to Shield Others

    I wasn't really the kind of person someone would pick on in school. Matter of fact, most people, even guys, were wary of me. My female body is unusually strong and I once tackled a guy, never to live it down (we were playing tag). Well, I guess girls weren't really supposed to...
