Why we do what we do…Jonathan is a kindergartner with high functioning autism, who lives in a small, rural town. Ever since he started school, Jonathan has been bullied incessantly. The harm being inflicted on this 6-year-old eventually led to two black eyes and a cut nose. Because of the bullying he had experienced, Jonathan was even too afraid to wear purple on Epilepsy Awareness Day as a show of support for his sister who has epilepsy. During a school meeting to address the bullying, Jonathan’s kindergarten teacher told his mom that, “because Jonathan has a disability he will be bullied a lot so he will need to learn to toughen up.” This is a real story, about real people. But the reality is, (1) no child EVER deserves to be bullied, (2) bullying doesn’t “toughen kids up” – it breaks them down, so much so that their educational performance is impacted – and (3) all students have the right to be safe at school.
If you have been the victim of hate, of any kind, it is not your fault. Please do not suffer in silence because there are people who can help: Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7. No matter what problems you are dealing with, we want to help you find a reason to keep living.
