Prayer stopped the bullying
I’ve played ice hockey for the last seven years. Last fall, I joined a new team. We were really good and won most of our games, and at first, all of the players seemed really nice.
But then, about halfway through the season, one kid began bullying me. I’m the goalie, and he’d say that I was afraid of the puck, that I was small and a bad player, and that he didn’t like my leg pads. He said those things very loudly so everybody else could hear. During games, this boy and some other players would say mean things about me when I made a mistake or let in a goal.
