When Do We Get To The Last Straw?

It was when I was a kid in junior high that I came to the end of my patience with bullies. At thirteen, I was an easy-going young man closing in on 6 1/2 feet tall. On the way there, a lot of my smaller (most all of them were) peers discovered that I would take a lot of ribbing and silently absorb it or laugh it off. One particular morning, however, I was on my way to give a special girl a satin heart full of chocolates, and the candy was balanced precariously on the bundle of schoolbooks I had under my arm. As I was walking down the hall toward her classroom, one of my regular irritations – a normal-sized classmate of mine – attempted to entertain some friends by running up and pushing me from behind. My books and the chocolate box went flying to the floor.¬† The heart-shaped box sprang open, and the chocolates rolled in all directions. A fight ensued. The perp went home with two black eyes and a bloody nose. All who witnessed my last straw testified in my favor. Our principal completely exonerated me. And no one ever messed with me again. When I got into college, I was 6’10” tall. That tussle in junior high was the very last time I had to use my fists to communicate with anyone. No brag. Just fact. Enough was enough.

    My older boy has had troubles this year. All year there was 2 other boys pushing him and bullying him. Tge school of course refused to step in because the other boys were ‘protect class’ and the school wrote it off as because of historical racism.

    I told him months ago that we would never punish him for standing up to the bullies.

    Last week he stood up to one. Gave him a black eye and a bloody nose. Then asked the 2nd one if he wanted the same. The bully ran away and the 1st one layed there and cried.

    Be sure you watch the video of President Trump VP Pence and the “Angel” families. Very moving and truth you’ll not see on the MSM.

    As a Teacher I just loved to nail those monsters. Fortunately both of my former bosses / Principals backed me up on this activity.

    I read an article last week in which 2 punks beat a 73 year old man because was wearing a MAGA hat. I will be 74 this July. I could’nt find one in the stores so I ordered a MAGA hat on line.
    When it gets here I plan to start wearing it every day. We cannot allow these antifa/leftist types to bully us.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
