I Hate these stories. This fuels me to write more. I am breaking my short posts run for this story. This is why I write this blog. This is why I ask people to share it. I have tried to make it to the pony blogs, Facebook, Twitter and more and I ask for continued support in reaching out.
I know what it is like to be bullied and teased. I know what its like to be relentlessly picked on. I have been there, and sometimes I am still there. This is a terrible thing that has happened. I wish I could have had a chance to talk to him. I can do the only 2 things I know to do.
“My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today.”
― Richard Adams, Watership Down
Adam, I did not know you. We never met, and I am sad that we didn’t. What has happened to you is a terrible action taken by horrid, selfless people. A quote that I read when I was young sums it up for me, I wore, and still wear, it like a badge of honor.
“Youth is cruel”
Second, if you know someone who needs help, please speak out. Do not be silent. There are enough voices that curse and spit vile cruelties. If you don’t know how to talk to them, just listen. If you can’t listen, find someone who will listen to them. I offer myself for those who need help.
I started this Blog for me. I see a way to help others. I will take helping others any day of the week.
Hug a pony my friends.
Rest in Peace Adam Smith.
