To me Easter is a time to be with my loved ones. It symbolizes new life and new beginnings as well as love. Someone has loved us humans so much that he gave the life of his own son so that we could be forgiven. So that we could live and be happy.
But as we all know the life is not all pink bubbles and happiness. Bad things happen, too. Sometimes we can help, sometimes not, and in this case we can. I’m strongly against bullying! If you are, too, please, take a minute and give some love to this sweet boy by liking his video and sharing love on his blog.

I started writing this story when I was witnessing what this boy, Rex was enduring on a daily basis. Kids at school were devaluing him for no other reason than his name was funny, or he wore his hair the way he liked. These kids would have looked for anything to go after his self-worth.
Looking at him I couldn’t understand how the other kids would choose to pick on him. He is a good looking boy who is smart and has personality. Somehow that wasn’t enough.
Things got worse for Rex when his parents pulled the plug on their marriage and his safe, predictable family life changed in an instant.
Now he had to become strong without having the tools to pick up the pieces. Through the writing of this book I believe Rex has become empowered. He has seen that if you work hard for something it pays off in more ways than one. He now knows that fighting is wrong and doesn’t solve the problem. Learning to outsmart the bullies has been a real eye opener. Keep them guessing is what he has learned to do. There is no reason their story can’t be heard. This is why we started Rex’s blog, http://tythebull.com. we hope others will visit and share their stories. No child should ever have to feel alone.
