I can relate to Katherine D when she wrote about being bullied in her article "Cause and Effect". Growing up, I wasn't the prettiest, skinniest, or most poplar. Day after day I was teased for being "fat" or "ugly". What being bullied taught me was to stand up for myself and not to care what other people think of me. Like Katherine stated, "I will remember these events for the rest of my life". Thank you Katherine for being so brave and telling your story.
