Many kids are bullied at school, to and from home, and over the internet. Their days at school are miserable. It has become such a huge problem that some victims of this unjust and mean action have committed suicide. Unless students are taught how to stand up to it, or someone intervenes, it continues. Bullying at one high school was put to a stop in an unusual way.
Queen Creek High School in Arizona has a special needs student who often came home crying every day. Students threw trash at her. They made fun of her brain disorder known as Microcephaly, which results in having a small, undersized head and a shortened life of only 25 to 30 years.
The girl’s mom wanted to know the names of the kids who were bullying her daughter. The school has a very popular quarterback, so she contacted him to see if he knew who they might be. She got more than she expected. The quarterback talked to several of his team members and they started eating lunch with the girl. They also began keeping a watchful eye on her while she was at school.
This high school has an undefeated football team, but now this girl is also undefeated by bullying. The harassment has stopped because several others cared enough to do something about it. These guys on the football team didn’t care what others thought when eating lunch with a special needs student.
From a spiritual perspective we are all people with special needs. We have a need to be loved and accepted. We may look normal on the outside with no brain disorder, but the Bible says we all have a “sin disorder.” God, however, came down to our level through his son, Jesus. He will accept you the way you are and “have lunch with you,” if no one else will. He will protect you from the big bully, the devil, and will watch over you moment by moment.
