Dear editor,

I just read about the book Tim Welch and Katie Simpson have written about being bullied. I know about Tim and he is a great friend to me and my family. I am so glad they wrote about their bulling experiences.

I, too, was bullied as a youngster because of my weight. It hurt as I was 14 pounds at birth.

As I got older, I got used to it and laughed it off. Little did I know that as I got even older I would be bullied by an adult at my workplace. That can hurt even worse as they try to take your dignity away and say things to others that are not true. It is sad to know that this man lives in Blair and does this to others as there are so many others that are truly wonderful people in Blair. We made a lot of great friends in our 28 years in Blair.
