Last year, I was being bullied at school. I know that compared to coming off of drugs and coming to God, learning not to stand for being bullied and showing love to people hating on me isn't as grand, but it made a huge impact on my life.
Last year was probably the worst year of my life when it came to school, because of these bullies. I never wanted to go to school and I just felt dead inside some days. I would cry myself to sleep almost every night and I was miserable. Then one day after school, after a particularly bad day of bullying, I flopped onto my bed and decided that I needed encouragement, so I flipped on KLRC. The song "Dry Bones" was playing, and I realized that I was the dry bones – the thing that seemed hopeless – but that through God, I was alive. I could suddenly face the next day without fear.
I told the girls who were being mean to me that the things that they said and did were hurtful, and that I was not okay with them doing that, but that I wouldn't hold a grudge or be rude to them because I knew it wouldn't solve any of my problems. I soon found my real friends, and I like to believe that my fresh start began with a song coming out of my old clock radio via KLRC.
