|The Beatles were right, all you need is love|
Never be afraid to stand up for what is best - for you or your loved ones - when they can't stand up for themselves. Today is most definitely a day full of excitement and hope because we finally had the courage to do just that - stand up for Hobbit. Bullies come in all shapes and sizes... and ages. When it's someone who is supposed to be an authority figure, it makes it a bit harder but even more important to do what you believe to be right.
Yes, it was scary. Yes, the principal had been observing and saw what I had been saying for the past several months to be honest and true. Yes, Hobbit does get a fresh start with a brand new teacher in a brand new pod this morning... and yes, she is as giddy as a girl on Christmas morning. Even now, while sitting next to me eating breakfast, she looked over and said "I'm so excited, Mama" with the biggest smile on her face. The sad eyes are no more. The desire to go to school has returned. That alone is enough to make me cry tears of joy.
I'm excited too, Hobbit. I'm excited too.
