I remember the warm fall sun hitting my face and thinking about how I really didn’t want to go to school that day. It wasn’t really the school that turned me off, but rather that I had chosen automobile mechanics as my major that semester and I was miserable. In one of my auto-technician classes there were a couple of bullies. Well, I have always been a bit of a rebel and tend to make friends with anyone people consider a bit different. I got to know one young man whom was disabled, and our friendship became quite strong in a few other classes we shared together.

Well, on that particular day, I happened to get to this one class early and just happened to hear these two bullies speaking about my friend. Of course, it wasn’t nice what they were saying, since they were planning to con my friend Ducky and steal his tools. As soon as my friend walked in to class, the teasing began. I kept silent for a while, just to see how far the dummies would go with their bullying tactics. They started on him pretty strong, then I saw my new friend getting very scared. He was a big loveable teddy bear type and clearly no match for those two bozos.

It was then that I fired the first shot over their bow. “Hey, don’t mess with Ducky, he’s my friend!” I shouted out. The bullies both looked shell shocked, since most of the students there knew that I was raised on the wicked streets of the barrio. It was then that I got up from my chair and walked up to them and said, “Whoever messes with Ducky is going to bring hell down on their own selves, is that understood!”  They both became very quiet and never bothered or picked on Ducky ever again!

There are many types of bullying, and this was just a light weight, small example of it. But as far as bullies go, they are all the same. "Cowards with a capitol C which is all they are!" Having been raised upon the vicious streets of the ghetto I have seen them talk big, only to run away with their tails tucked between their legs when someone stronger challenges them. So, in retrospect, never be scared of bullies, because sooner or later the only ones they can really destroy, is themselves!
