Article - Letter from the Bully!

Living a life experiencing bullying became an everyday routine to person named Chad Michael Morissette. Back in the day when he attended Junior High, he became a victim of bullying. About 5-7 boys from the school football team would torment him each day for the the whole school year.

He says the reasons why this took action was because he has same gender love relationship and also because he was small and bullied for all possible reasons. Now at the age of 34 he has moved on from that horrible nightmare.

Having been bullied in the past really affected his life in a way that he had all this but not just him but also one of the bullies. 20 years after from being a part of bullying he had stopped thinking about it.   
Scrolling through facebook one day a notification popped up. He received a message, it said something like this......

Hey Chad,
I was recently talking with my 10 year old daughter about bullies. She asked me if I ever bullied anyone and sadly I had to say yes. What came to mind was how mean I was to you when we were in Jr. High. I want to apologise. If we lived in the same state I would apologise face to face. I don’t know if you remember, but I do and i’m sorry.
- Bully

Chad found the message touching and moving. It brought up a subject he has thought of in quit a long time. He accepted the apology saying something like this...

Thank you for your apology. I was quite moved by it, it even brang tears to my eyes knowing that you really don’t want to be part in the bullying scene anymore. Back when we were in Junior High out of all the other 5-7 boys you are the only one who apologised. It’s amazing what 20 years and children can do to us, no? I hope you can be an amazing role model to your daughter and when you see bullying you stand up to it. Have a great!
- Chad.

It goes to show that it is never too late to ask for forgiveness.
