Earlier this week, my heart was broken to hear the story of 10-year old Kayden Culp of Kerrville, Texas who was set on fire by bullies ages 9, 10 and 11. Let that sink in.
Bullying must stop.
When my middle son was in the 1st grade he was bullied. My son had a severe speech deficit and there was a kid who picked on him constantly. My husband and I met with my kid's teacher and there was a plan to meet with the other child's parent but she never showed up at any of the meetings. Then one day we received a call from a substitute teacher - who was a trainer at the gym hubby works out at. She told us our son was punched in the mouth and is in the nurse's office. His two front teeth had been knocked out.
You cannot imagine my horror when I arrived at the school to see my kid. I was horrified.
Our horror continued as we had to file a police report against a 1st grader for assault.
We changed schools the following week. That's a whole 'notha story. I forgave that kid, but I never forgot that feeling. I pray for young Kayden's healing and I pray his parents will someday forgive the children who assaulted their son. I know they'll forget... but I pray they forgive.
I pray donations continue to stream in for Kayden as I am sure his medical bills will be astronomical. So, I have donated to his YouCaring GoFundMe page and I hope you will consider doing so also.
