Will it's FRYday. I sure wish they would have done something about Bullying. When I was a kid things could have been much different. If someone would have told those kids to get off my back and leave me alone in school I have no doubt that the route my life took would have been different. Before I disagreed with bringing attention to this matter but I was wrong then. Maybe I was jealous that nothing had been done when I was a kid. I remember being afraid to fight back for several reasons but that all led to feeling extreme FEAR inside. Fear so strong I wanted to die when I was a young kid. That is not any way for a kid to live feeling fear all the time afraid to do anything at all while others laugh and poke fun because there is something about the kid that's not totally normal.
Sometimes I wish I could live it again all over knowing what I know now but then I'd be a killer for sure because even though I'd be living my life again doesn't mean my aggressors would change. I would change knowing what I know now. Any way I look at it my life was going downhill because it was meant to be that way. I went off in the 5th grade once and hit one of my tormentors over the head with a math book. I hit him so hard I fractured his skull. He had been my best friend but he turned on me and joined the others I had enough. When I hit him I had no intention of killing him I had no idea that by hitting him on the head with that book there was a real possibility that he could die, I just wanted to be left alone. I was aware of my actions. I didn't black out, I snapped. The interesting thing is that for years the teachers had no problem whatsoever watching me get the scrap kicked out of me by other students. I remember most of the teachers did not lift a finger, or say a word to help me out but Boy! Did they freak out when I would go off! I was the bad guy when I went off that first time with the book. I was suspended from school until my parents and I attended a session with the board of education's Head Shrinker. First he met with me and I was totally honest told him my dad hit me. I was scared all the time afraid to fight back etc. He told me he was going to talk to my father for me and I told him that wasn't a good idea, but he didn't listen he wanted to speak to my father alone. Here was the one person in my whole life willing to stand up for me change the direction of my life and he was going to tell my father to stop hitting me and get counseling for his anger. I went out into the waiting room with my mother while my father went into the room to speak with the doctor. It really did not go over so well for the doctor. He got his butt kicked and the very next day I went back to school the other kid, the one I hit with the book, never came back to school and I never saw him again his family moved out of the HOOD. My popularity as a punching bag continued on. I got beat up, more teachers continued to do nothing about it, more kids ganged up on me. I really don't know how I lived through all that. I wanted to die every day. I wanted to be buried in the ground in a box in a deep dark hole where no one would bother me ever again.
I did what kids do when there's no one or nothing for them to live for I started breaking the law; I found it to be a great outlet. All that bone breaking and face smashing made me kinda mean in a snappy sort of way my father had taught me well. I remember being so angry I wished my father dead. When he suddenly died I thought I killed him with my thoughts. I started thinking about being bullied again because it's been in the news about the young gal that committed suicide over being bullied; I was watching the news and heard that the girl's tormenters are going to do a little time. It sounds like their parents and the school they all attended is in trouble too. Well that's good because I remember back all those years the scrap I went thru and something should have been done then but nothing was if anything the teachers in my school advocated the bullies by doing nothing and it's a good thing I didn't get ahold of a weapon because I had the potential and the rage inside of me to do the wrong thing at that time. Maybe if something is done now there will be less tragedy in the future. I'm not blaming all teachers and schools now. When I was a kid they did nothing, now things are different. In Santa Barbara and Goleta I hear calls go out on a regular basis in cases of kids being bullied, assaulted by other kids, child abuse, neglect, more lately I hear people calling in on 415 Domestics people reporting parents possibly mistreating their kids. People are waking up; children are being saved. For those of you that call 911 when you hear a child being yelled at or abused, Thank You from someone that has been thru that HELL.
