In third and fourth grade, there were some bullies at my school. They pushed me around, called me names, and teased me about my size. This made going to school very unpleasant. I hated these boys a lot, and I began to make excuses to stay home.
I didn't want to hate anyone, but I didn't know what to do except pray about it. On the wall of my Sunday School is written "God is love," from First John in the Bible. In our class we talked about letting Love guide us and show us the way. God made all, and He made everything good, I learned. How could I hate what God has made?
Reading the Bible, I learned that Christ Jesus loved so much he could heal others of diseases and unhappiness. This is what I wanted to do. I wanted to love more and be loved. But it wasn't easy. The bullying did not stop.
