To the people who stared

Last week I was out to eat with my family at noodles and co. while we were there my mom started getting angry and I didn’t know why. All of a sudden she started talking to my dad and brother about a high school couple who was staring at us. At that time I just though whatever let it go its happened before. Then it got worse, they started to pointing and laughing at me. I just stayed quite they don’t know my story. The thing that got me angry was that I wasn’t the one to see it, it was my family who did. I didn’t want my mom to my a big deal out of it even though I know she should’ve. she said “I should just go up to them and take a picture, then post it on facebook and tell everyone about.” I didnt want that to happen, but when we got home I was so hurt and angry that, this situation had effected my family and has before.

Let me tell you something that night they didn’t hurt me, but they hurt my family. If you want to laugh and talk about me don’t do it in public and have it affect my family. I understand they were in high school and they don’t know my story, but they know right from wrong. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. I’ve had a whole family (with little kids) stare and laugh at me. Just educate yourself or come up to me and ask me questions. just don’t laugh and stare.

Here are a couple different articles similar to my writing. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ellen-seidman/a-letter-to-the-mom-who-stared-at-my-child_b_5354478.html

  1. It was a horrible experience! N yes, there was nothing more I wanted to do than go and take a picture and make a post about my disgust! However, I did take into account how that one horrible decision could effect them for the rest of their lives.. What if they didn’t get into the college of their choice that they had worked so hard for.. What if they couldn’t get a job.. Or what if they ended up being stared at and laughed at everywhere they went.. In the end I think my death stare might have taught them a lesson.. U know I have magical powers! Lol I love u…

  2. Sorry that happened.
    Keep your chin up. You are loved beyond measure.
    Don’t let a few immature brats get you down. What they did was wrong and cruel, but you handled it with maturity, dignity and self respect.
