My daughter is a High School Junior, and was selected for Homecoming Court. This seems great, except that the majority of her class thought it would be a funny joke to choose the "ugly, fat girl". My daughter is taking it well and is just excited that she will have an opportunity she never thought possible. I, on the other hand, am furious! This is our third year of abuse and bullying, and I pray each day for patience and the faith my daughter has. She is such a kind soul, and is so forgiving! I just can't understand how people can be so cruel! I seem to be having a rougher time than she, but I see realistic dangers in having her ride in an open car during the parade, or being on stage at the dance. I fear she will be targeted again, and I just can't see her hurt again. Who can we turn to?
