Re: Hope Standard Feb. 22, one brave young man.
Brayden, big tip of the hat to you for taking a public stand and telling your story, a very brave thing to do.
Most school teachers these days try their best to watch out for and hopefully eliminate bullying, teasing, name-calling, but the odd student(s) who do this usually carefully pick a time behind the teachers’ back. So next time it happens you just look them in the eye — mean cannot handle the truth.
Keep doing what you’re doing. As you travel further along your path it will become clearer that life is not meant to be easy, it’s meant to be life.
Life can be tough at times but you are tougher. You are a warrior, just check with your mum.
My very best wishes to you.
P.S. I have an autistic son, has suffered all your pains and now at 53 years old, has a good life with a job he loves. You also can and will make it through.
