Bullying has GOT to be caused by a malfunction in the brain. Seriously! How can anyone WANT another person to hurt so badly? It’s just sad and pathetic.

Bullied Teen Turns Prank Homecoming Nomination Into The Real Deal

It was a nightmare. A prank as cruel as you would see in the movie Carrie. Whitney Kropp was nominated to be homecoming queen at Owega High School. Her excitement quickly turned into self-loathing, when students told her the nomination was a joke. Whitney even considered taking her own life. Then something amazing happened.

Her story got out and the community began to rally around her. Not just the local stores who donated hair styling, makeup, dresses, and shoes for the big day. But her fellow students who weren’t in on the prank, who recognized it as a horrible bullying. So on that big night, the big night that was intended to be a sham, a farce. Well, the joke was on her bullies. Whitney stepped out of a limousine dressed stunningly. The crowd roared as they held up signs for her, cheering her on. The nomination might have been fake, but the win was very real.

“I had thoughts about not coming, but I actually changed my mind and came out. I just thought maybe I won’t have fun. But I’m having a lot of fun right now,” Whitney told ABC. “The kids that are bullying, do not let them bring you down. Stand up for what you believe in, and go with your heart and go with your gut. That’s what I did, and look at me now. I’m just as happy as can be.”

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
