This poor kid

I was taught growing up that bullying was absolutely unacceptable.  My dad grew up very poor, his mother kicked him out when he was 9 years old and he went from friends house to friends house.  He was made fun of a lot because his clothes were often old and ratty.  He always made it clear to us kids that bullying was unacceptable, if we were caught making fun of another child the shit would hit the fan.  I don't think enough parents take bullying seriously and shrug it off as "Kids being kids".

Were you made fun of in school?  Did this video hit a nerve?

 I was severly bullied in high school. this video made me cry. because of the same thinghappening to me, but the fact that he also realizes that he is strong and he said he isnt going anywhere.

Can't see the video, would need a link. But no, I was not bullied but my DH was. I was always told that bullying was wrong. I have always made strides to be nice and accepting. But in my adult life, I won't lie, I have a hard time holding my tongue.
