A note to say hello.
I have nothing new to post because yesterday my daughter was assaulted by a freshman boy on the school bus. He slapped her face so hard at 7:45 am that at 9:40pm when she got home from track, we could still see the red hand print. He has been given 25 days out of school suspension and we are pressing assault charges.
His male chauvinist remarks have only dug him a deeper hole- "women should know their place and respect men" that was one of his comments right after he hit her and the other teenagers on the bus witnessed the talk and reported it to the school principal and the school officer. There were others made during the course of the day and all have been reported and it is obvious to us he is from an abusive home. I have been told by my son that the boys at school want to work him over just for hitting a girl. Now that isn't necessary, but it's nice to know the boys at school don't condone the actions by this kid but it's sad that they want to use the same tactics on him. Human nature? hmmmmm
Anyhow, she is bruised and doing ok today, but I know the trauma it gave her. The boy was being rude on the bus and after several times of several teens asking him to be quiet he continued to be obnoxious and using fowl language and she asked him to shut up, and he cussed at her so, she took her brothers water bottle and poured some of it on him. His actions were NOT appropriate (according to vp, the boy only got a spot of water on his shoulder. She didn't drench him and I am NOT condoning what she did either). It was uncalled for on both parts but especially his brutality.
So that is why I have nothing new to share. I have been a bit busy! I have a hair cut tomorrow and Lisa and I are supposed to get together to scrapbook- gee, I hope we do I need the getaway! lol
hugs to all
