Do you have any ‘inspirational story or incidence’ in your life to share?
As a child I was tongue tied, and picked on by most other children.
I thought I was alone and unsupported, I though the adults didn’t see or care.
One afternoon when I was 11 years old, on the bus trip home, I called another kid a name (along with others on the bus – his name was Ricky Scowan, and I called him “Sickly Ricky”).
As I got off the bus, the bus driver said quietly to me “Of all the children, I never thought I would hear you say something like that.”
That was perhaps my greatest moment of shame.
I have never since joined in picking on another.
I realised that others had seen what happened to me, they had noticed; it was just that for whatever reason, they had not acted.
One of the pivotal incidents in my life.
