Cruelty

Life as I know as came crashing down around me.   I have no idea why these events happened or why the people who caused these events wanted to do harm to me and my son.  I have never understood why people could be so cruel to one another, especially to a child.

About a month ago, I was at a job I loved, teaching students.  I was happy. my son was happy and life was great.  My husband and I were paying off debt, getting closer to our dream of buying property and building a house.  We wanted to have a little farm.  Well it doesn't look like that dream is going to come true anytime soon.

All of a sudden at my job there were all of these problems, and I was somehow in the middle of it.  I didn't want to be, and I did my best to distance myself from them, but it didn't matter where I turned there was always something going on.  The on site admin is the cruelest person that I have ever met, she got her thrills out of torturing young scholars especially those who were autistic.  She called them names and told the kids they were dumb.  If you reported her to the main admin, they came back with stop causing problems, you are the trouble maker.   It was starting to get more and more hostile, and I just couldn't take it anymore.  My assistant who worked full time with me in the room, would be mean to the children, then come off with I am the mean one and I was unbearable to work with.

This continued on and on.  Then finally I just had to leave, I couldn't take it anymore.  I couldn't take the abuse, the cruel comments, but most of all I couldn't take the meanness to the children.  Those precious kids didn't deserve to be treated that way.  I tried to stop it but I have failed.  They decided I was a troublemaker and had to be gotten rid of.  They have threatened me to be silent and not to say a word or they would hurt my child.   These people are the most ruthless people I have ever met in my entire life.  They say they love children and want to help them become successful, but the harsh reality is that they want the students to fail.  They want the children to feel dumb and they love to be cruel to them.

I can't believe that these people can get away with what they are doing.  Worst of all I can't believe that they want to harm children.  I still can't get over the fact that they have threatened me and my son.  Why would they want to hurt my little boy, he didn't do anything.  He is innocent in all of this, but to them he is just a pawn in their evil games.  Now I have nowhere I can really turn to.  I have left my teaching position, and pulled my son from the school, but the violence of these people don't stop there.  They have told people who I used to work with to speak badly of me, to get my teaching licence pulled and to ensure that I will never have a good job again.   What in the world drives these people to do this?  Why do they get their thrills out of trying to ruin someone and their family?  There is no call for any of this.  I have worked hard to be where I am at, and I will not let these tortuous people do this to me and my son.

Kindness

My mother and I both take care of my grandmother, who is going blind because of eye disease.  It is a hard job, especially to see a once vibrant woman reduced down to a woman who can't see good, and  is crippled with arthritis.  It is truly one of the hardest things that I have had to do in life.  But I do it with great pleasure, as my grandparents sacrificed so much to ensure that I and my sister were taken care of while my parents worked.  It doesn't bother me at all to take the time that is needed to spend time with grandma or to help her.

The other day my mother and grandma were coming home from the doctors office and they went through the drive up window to Arby's.  They placed their order and went to pay for it at the window.  The cashier refused to take their money, stating that the man in front of them had paid for their meal.  They were so humbled that someone would do that for a stranger.  So they decided to pay it forward and pay for the car behind them.

This story helps restore some faith in humanity, especially after all that is going on in this world.  It was nice of someone to pay for my mom and grandma's meal, especially during the Holiday season, where it is a hardship on so many people.  Whoever you are stranger, thank you so much for helping my mom and grandma that day.  It means more to me than you will ever know.
