This was posted by my 14 year old sister. She has been overweight for most of her life and has to deal with constant bullying by ignorant kids. This has gone on as soon as she started school in kindergarten. She has been teased to the point of tears more times than I can count.

I remember how bad she wanted this pink coat when she was in kindergarten and she got it. The first time she wore it to school everyone said she looked like a pig because she was fat and had a pink coat. I came home from school to hear her crying in her room to my mother saying, “I don’t want to be like this anymore mom. I wish I could be skinny like my sister.” She was 5. Only 5 years old and already crying because she unhappy with the way she looked.

I would give anything to be able to fight her battles for her. I would give anything to stop her pain. But I can’t stop the bullying. I can’t go to school with her and protect her. I hate seeing what bullying does to her.

She is now 14 and a freshman in high school. And is going to the education board to get on attendance probation because she hates putting up with the cruelty of other kids. She cannot bring herself to go to school on the days that she has gym because of the teasing. She would rather get in trouble than to be forced to deal with bullies. My heart aches for her everyday. I would give anything to make it stop.
