I woke up this morning with a short to-do list, not really expecting how the rest of the day would unfold.  Before I knew it, I was guided to the parking lot of my middle school.  I bolstered up some courage to setup my camera right in front of the school as parents were picking their kids up from band practice.  After recording a short introduction of my experience with bullying and handling my sensitive nature at an early age, I felt a strong nudge to go inside – even as my inner child was shaking with fear.  A friendly conversation with administration and a visitor badge later, I ventured through the empty school, recalling old memories and taking back my dignity once and for all.
