I walked down the halls of the high school watching as kids laughed at me and made fun of me for whatever reason they had. Yes my dad had just lost his job and was now working at a Walmart just to make some money. My mom had gotten a divorce a few years ago and she left us. 
I walked into the cafeteria for lunch and the rich girls pointed to me and said "you are the poorest kid at the school you shouldn't be allowed to go here." And laughed. I ate my lunch alone almost every Day at the end back of the cafeteria. People would constantly throw things at me during the whole period. I hated going to school because of the bullying problem. A few girls would be sitting around in class talking about a big party they were having. 
I made a mistake of looking at them. They gave me a look of death and said "You would never ever be invited because you are a looser." I ignored the bully's at that school constantly. But a part of me wondered what life would be like without them all. I often dreamed of being in peace away from all the bully's but that was just nothing but a dream as I wasn't going to make it a reality. I couldn't. My dad needed me and same as my brothers. I knew my dad wasn't making enough to support me to switch schools so everyday I would go In and try my hardest to make it a good day even if it wasn't. 
Then one day a new teacher had taken over class it was a photography class. He took a shine to me when no one else would. He gave me hope,He gave me reason. He said 

"life is like a camera you never know what picture you will get, but you will never know if you don't take a shot with it". To me that meant each day can be better than the next but it is up to you to make it the best." So with that I forgave all the people who bullied me. I joined some after school classes even though I didn't need too. He told me the reason people bully is sometimes they are jealous of you. "What do I have that makes them Jealous?"  Your personality. Your a good kid. My teacher said. Making me feel better. 
I joined his photography class and even the year book. I made a bunch of friends and I really feel like I really turned my high school life around. I started it off with no friends and I always wanted to leave right when the last bell rang I was even bullied on the bus. I never had the courage to talk to anyone or do anything I really wanted to be homeschooled but I knew that just wasn't an option at the time. Sure I still get bullied on a regular bases but If it wasn't for they're bullying,or for my photography teacher I would never have had the courage to  join these classes and make more friends. Bullying is a real problem in schools nowadays. 
What I have to say is Never be part of the problem be a solution. If you see someone getting bullied be a friend to them you never know what there going through and you might save a life. Never be part of the problem but be The Solution. To end it for good.
