Originally posted on Huffington Post Please listen: I need to tell you a story. The story of a 5-year-old boy who was attacked at his own school. A story where violence, aggression, and viciousness lurked through the halls of a place that is supposed to be safe. A place where we usher our children off to every morning with the promise that they will be sheltered and protected. What if it was your child? There were four boys that held him down on that kindergarten playground.
Originally posted on Huffington Post I remember when I was still in it. I sat quietly on the couch. Fidgeting, shifting, and flushed. Trying to make myself appear comfortable, trying to convince my therapist that I was okay, trying to consider the implication of her accusation -- her diagnosis. Eating Disorder. I almost felt like laughing when she said it -- and she said it in such a matter of fact way. She was careful with me, not knowing exactly how deep she could dig. Sitt
