Bullied Kids Speak Out: We Survived-How You Can Too
Author: Jodee Blanco

Hi. I’m glad you’re here! If we’ve already met, either through one of my other books or perhaps because I’ve spoken at your school, it’s so cool to see you again. And if this is our first time hanging out, I’m happy that we found each other. I want you to know you’re safe here, that you’re not alone. We all understand what you’re going through. When I was in school, I never thought it would get better. I can still hearmy classmates laughing at me. I can still feel the sting of all those parties I never got invited to, the football games on Friday nights I longed to attend but didn’t dare because I knew I’d be sitting alone in the bleachers, humiliated and ashamed. Don’t even get me started about what it was like in the cafeteria at lunch or in the locker room after gym class.

Back then there was no Internet. When I got home from school, I was beyond lonely, but at least no one could mess with me in the sanctity of my own home on a computer or smartphone. Cyber-bullying was a monster of the future, one whose claws hadn’t yet scratched, whose teeth hadn’t yet bitten. Now that monster is unleashed. It’s just one more way the mean kids can break your heart. I know all about feeling broken. I also know what it feels like to survive and come back stronger, smarter, and better than before. So do the kids you’ll be meeting here. They never gave up. Some took longer than others, and some made a lot of mistakes before getting it right, but every one of them found a way to stand up to their bullies and reclaim their lives. Not only will they give you hope that you can too, but they’ll tell you exactly how
they did it.

Welcome home. It’s time for you to get to know everyone!
