Hi Scott~

I usually grade papers in my classroom here in Cleveland and listen to you on the iheart radio app.  There has been more than one occasion that the words you speak and the things you say are just what I need to hear at the moment.  A great deal of the emotions I have come from being picked on growing up.  The cruel things you say to someone WILL last a lifetime. Often it is hard to hear and even believe that in God's eyes you are something great.  I give this young lady a great deal of credit for overcoming the the hatred we are so often faced with.  What a great example of how God can touch your life just when you need it!  Thanks for sharing this beautiful story.  But even a bigger thank you for the positive, uplifting, truth-filled messages that you share each day!  May God Bless YOU!!!!

last week at my daughters school a young took a grenade to school she was a victim of bullying because of her weight now she is in juvenile hall. my daughter feels very bad for that girl being bullyed. my daughter was also bullied in the past. now that this has happened my daughter went to her principle and ask to start an anti bullying group and it was excepted. i was also bullyed as a child and i am so proud of my daughter for being concerned about others.
