Fanz23 - HS Reunion? Get Over It!!

Has anyone seen the commercials or even watch a reality show called "High School Reunion"? I think it's been on for maybe 3 or 4 years on TVLAND. Anyway it's about a group of high school classmates who are nearing their 20th HS reunion and bringing them back together. Now, of course there has to be drama and the show finds it in "The Bully," "The Jock" or alas, "The Nerd/Geek etc etc etc."

And the last one is where I'm going to get controversial and maybe pique some conversation. What I'm about to write is my opinion and mine alone. But to the folks who were bullied, bagged on, picked on whatever! I only say this:

GET OVER IT!!

Damn, it's been 20 some years and you're still bitchin' about what happened two damn decades ago! We were kids and kids do and say mean things, but if you're holding on to this mess for all these years and expecting someone to look back and only say "sorry?" Okay then..

Sorry.

In the newspapers and even on television we see and read stories about a kid being picked on and coming to school with a gun and some analyst supporting this action due to bullying or being picked on.

I don't see it that way, I see it as cowardice! I see it as the picked on being exactly what they are on the totem pole, low and still full of predators because they are in fact, low in the food chain. Unable to survive in the jungle where the weak get eaten.

We all at some point or another experienced being talked about or even picked on, but at some point, we reached the limit and this is for those who are still holding grudges after some damn 20 years....

ready? because the solution is simple...I don't want you to miss it...here it is..

WE FOUGHT BACK!!!

We let folks get to know us, we proved ourselves in other areas, where respect is given and whaddya know, we made friends and life goes the hell on.

So if you're one of those people who was constantly picked on, bagged on or bullied...

Sorry.

Now get over it.
