I don't know that my actions would work in every situation. Sometimes bullying gets so bad you have to find help from the principal or someone else. But in my case, what I did happened to work. I also know I came to see God a little differently. He suddenly seemed a little bigger to me than he used to, like someone who was really there for me and always by my side. I was never really alone. And while Nathan and Rob may not have understood what was going on, I believe they got to experience a little bit of the love of God through me.
