The Bully Plays had a great opening night. Our audience was bigger than I expected. They seemed to truly appreciate the plays and the work the kids put into work. I believe we were successful in our efforts to spread the message that bullying is not okay and that kindness is where it’s at.

I found humor when it was appropriate and tried to look on the bright side of life all day. I helped a man look for his son who not come home from school. The boy was found, so no worries there.
