Lisa, Thanks for the lesson and the reminder…cheers to this good kid. Really absurd stuff and quite important that bullies can be shamed…maybe, that is. Those Jr hi years can be tough, and everyone knows that.

Stay strong, Jonah, you are already very brave.

Now you have hundreds of people who love you and respect you. Please understand that these people who are hurting you don’t fully comprehend the harm they are causing you. Being your age is the worst of it (promise). As you continue to mature you will also learn that how others treat you reflects more on who they are, not who YOU are.
I love ya kid and WE need you to help others. It would be a real blessing if you were to turn your pain into wisdom and someday be the person ‘there’ for another soul.
This coming from a 46 year old who has been through tons of pain and understands that all the pain has value.
Jonah Mowry is a brave person and I’ll keep him in my heart.

Wow, that is so powerful.

Listen, Jonah, anyone with communications skills like you have NEEDS TO EXIST, so you can use those skills to change the world into the place you want it to be.

You have an amazing talent, young man. Put it to good use. Actually, you seem to have started to put it to very good use already.

I hope Jonah knows that he’s just saved maybe a million other kids’ lives just by doing that. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go get some more Kleenex.

Wish I could do more for him than tell him that weird as it sounds things will work their way out for him, he’s a brave asshole for sure, and I wish I could be half as courageous as he is. He’ll probably redeem the world. :-)

And he does have the greatest smile, and I’ll paste anyone who tries to hurt him for it. :-(

Hey Buddy, I know right now its hard to comprehend, but this is just a small speck of time in your life that will be over in a few short years. Then, you have your entire life ahead of you. You are a handsome, brilliant young man with so much to give, stay with us..the world NEEDS YOU…and get your parents to look into home schooling, I wish I could trade places with you for a day, I would clean house for you. Hang in there Buddy! Its not forever! You will some day look back and laugh.
