Bullying someone can have devastating effects on a person’s life and leave them with insecurities and emotional scarring. Life will throw you many hardships, family, should not be one of them. Stick up for yourself, and don’t let anyone tell you not to just because they’re family.
That day I was brought to the police station and told them about what happened. I gave my statement and left. My friends did the same. February 27th, 2014 I was pulled out of my 2nd-period class and was arrested. All of us involved were. We were told we’d be going to a juvenile center for the weekend. I’m not going to lie and say it was horrible, The guys were all scary looking thugs, or that it changed my life. None of that would be true
If all the lbgtq people had allies like mine maybe the suicide rate and homeless rate of the lgbt community wouldn’t be one of the highest. Who knows what my life would be like without my accepting friends and family. Would I be homeless? Would I have committed suicide? Only God knows. A special thanks to the people who have changed my life
You’re the first soldier on my battlefield when I can’t face my battles alone. I could never thank you enough for what you do for me. So this letter is just one of many thanks, I owe you.
A poem of growing up
