The Bully
1: The meeting between Roger and Tony in the restaurant was kind of awkward, because Roger has not recognized Tony, and I think the reason to that was, because Roger tried to block his miserable memories from his childhood.
When all of suddenly it all came back to Roger like a flash of lighting, he mumbled “Tony the bull”, and then he remembered all of the bullies of his seventh grade geography, and how many times he made fun of his big ears in front of the girls in the class. How many times this son of gun (as he described him) had laughed at him because he had no parents and had to live in orphanage. How many times this big bully slammed him up against the lockers in the hallway just to make Tony himself look like a big man to all the other students.
Roger could not believe that the big burley guy he remembered back in 1957, now looks so thin and so friendly. Obviously after high school Tony married a lovely wife, who was very helpful and loved him unconditionally, somehow Tony got on to an accident and was now on wheelchair.
I personally think that Roger is a good person, with a heart of gold, because even though Tony had bulled him back then, he did not reach to his level, he did not think of revenge,but he actually felt sorry for Tony and gave him his card with his number written on it, and told him to call him some time for a launch. He actually saw Tony as the only friend from his high school days.

A letter to Roger
Dear Roger
I don’t know what to say or where to start, but I would like to say, that am sorry for what I did to you back in high school, words cannot describe how sorry I feel right now, and you may not believe me, but I am.
I was just a kid back then and did not know better, but that’s not an excuse to act the way I did. Seeing you the other day at the restaurant made me think back in high school and what an ass whole I was back then.
I don’t know if I can explain why I did what I did, but if I could go back in time and change some of the things I did, I would, but I can’t, so I kindly ask for your forgiveness. I must say that I didn’t expected you to react the way you did the other day, because even though I mistreated you in high school, you were still kind to me and helped me and tried to be my friend.
I know now how you felt back then; and I know it was wrong of me for trying to make fun of you for not having parents and for being an orphan, because that’s not something to joke about or bully someone for that, and it’s not like you chose to be it, but I guess that I was a selfish kid, who was looking for attention.
Just the thought of being a jerk back then, makes me sick; you must have felt all alone in this world. I guess that’s why they say, what goes around, comes back around, that’s how I feel now, and even though am not completely alone and have my wife by my side, I feel alone, weak and helpless.
But I`m very fortunate to have her in my life, I honestly have no idea what I would have done without her or how I would survive, I guess God is great, for have blessed me with such a wonderful wife, who sticks with me through thick and thin and for better and for worse.
And I know that you may not forget the things that I did to you, but I sincerely hope and wish for that you may someday forgive me for my childish behavior.
I would like to call you sometime and meet up for lunch, so that we can talk and sort things out between us, and hopefully we will close the old chapters and start new ones together and build a new friendship between us. From your humble new friend, Tony

    school. The second way to reduce bullying is to get better punishments. When kids get bullied the bullies usually just get off with a warning or sent home, unless in the case of a death. When the bullied don't kill themselves the bullies usually get off with a warning. When given a warning people don't take it seriously and more often than not nothing is done until it is too late. I think that the bully should be given a in school suspension. When people are given out of school suspensions they look…

    English 6 Ms.Golder Feb 12,2014 Bullies Bullies seem to share certain qualities; bullies make themselves feel big by making other people feel small, to make themselves feel better about their own personal issues. Bullies act cruelly in order to get attention, and the people who watch and laugh are just provoking the bully to keep going. It’s difficult to stand up to a bully, especially when they’re a lot bigger and stronger than you. If bullies could control themselves and the way they…
