Bullying, up close and personal by Ashley Brueck

Hi EN'ers,
It is my pleasure to introduce you to Ashley Brueck, a young Education Major at Montclair State, lover of the written word and quite the babysitter-in-demand.  Read her story about bullying...maybe you or someone in your family can relate to the cruelty that exists in our schools and homes (where bullying originates)...

My Story.

Growing up I was constantly the target of people’s cruel words and acts.  Middle School was probably the worst time of my life.  I was shy, had some friends, but not a solid group, and most of the time got along with the teachers better than with my peers. I had my lunch stolen from me for a month before I finally broke down at home and told my parents what was happening.  Obviously it got taken care of, but I probably can’t even count the amount of times I was in and out of the guidance counselor’s office for the next couple years. I will always remember the group of girls that made my life a living hell those 4 years. I also had an incident where two boys came up to me after school, one held me and the other one punched me in the stomach. READ MORE
