“I wonder why people hate me. Everyone finds it easy to bully me and it’s tough. It hurts me. I hate school. Some times I hate myself because of other people hating me. I wish I felt normal like other people.”
That’s the opening monologue of a three-minute video Virginia Williamson Elementary School students produced earlier this month as part of an anti-bullying campaign.
Virginia Williamson physical education teacher Nick Westfall spearheaded the effort to create the film and recruited the help of 12 fifth-grade students.
