Thank you so much, Elly, from being so willing to share your story. I'm so glad that the students you are working with in Orlando have you there to talk to and mentor them--I wish you didn't know what they're going through, but given that you've stood in their shoes, I'm glad that they have you and the other City Year corps members there to support them. And, I'm glad that so many of them are standing up to bullying instead of just being bystanders. We need to encourage more kids to do so, and we adults need to support their efforts so that another generation doesn't come through school having these kinds of stories.
