    If I could take you back to where I lived in Leavenworth KS (1976 time) when my father was a professor at the Army War College  to the school I went to and show you the way I used to run home to get away from being bullied.

    That your kid will stand up for those having that done to them is about the coolest thing I've heard today.

    Later my father when I told him what was happening he taught me to defend myself. To break your arm or make you  "tap" out. But before that, it was about the most terrible thing in the world.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
