When I was a kid in HS, there was this Black dude that many picked on. His problem was genetics, in that you really couldn't tell if he was a "he" or a "she." In other words, HE WAS BORN THAT WAY, but was aided into being bullied due to the way that he walked, and the suit and tie that his parents forced him to wear. Nobody wore suits! And he had no friends. Except one day, one of his bullies kept on bothering me, and my friend Bob, who would later become my radio partner. I asked him to leave. I asked him twice. The third plea was in the form of a fist. Yay! I got a 2 week vacation! Not sure what happened to the Black guy. I didn't even know his name. But I figure if I didn't get brownie points from above, the vacation was well appreciated, from a school that hated me as much as I hated it.

I was bullied, too, but the knowledge of God gave me deaf ears to the whatever trash the bullies said to me. I also took cautions not to get physical encounters with them. When they called me out, I ignored them because no students should have any rights to order me around. What bullies said contradicted with what the Bible says so I knew I didn't need to listen to them. I pitied them in heart because the judgment was their final lot. Talking about Jesus usually brought further bullying but I think at the end I ended up scaring the bullies. Reading the Holy Bible and the world history - the stories on how the historic Christians and missionaries were persecuted and martyred, how the Jews were singled out and slaughtered by Nazis, and how the individuals fought against the plans of Nazis - also strengthened my spirit in my teenage years. I concentrated on study, creative hobbies and the good friends I had instead of thinking about the bullies all the time. For the fight against bullies, I suggest kids to go to church regularly, be assured of the Creator God's unconditional love, stop minding feeling insecure( everyone feels insecure), be compassionate to others instead of imagining the horrible future all the time, dress up properly( no excesive showing of skin), use clean language( no OMG or swearing), become tough inside without getting tattoos( every human is a sinner and it is unethical to be enslaved by any human), reduce spending time on electric device and study hard( school years are for learning and not for wasting) and belong to safe crowds though it may not be the coolest thing. If you don't have good normal parents, determine to believe till the end that there are entirely different beautiful worlds in existence than what you know now( because there are) and read the Gospel, go to church, and study on what the American Founding Fathers actually wrote. American kids are ignorant on their own heritage( I really feel sorry for the American settlers. I've seen no other nationals bashing so hard their own ancestors who were better than themselves like Americans do. The Pax Americana was achieved, then the bored kids started bullying and killing each other. How foolishly tragic.) and are drowning on the brain-emptying entertainment all the time; the reason bullying will never cease. One needs the faith in Jesus, the clear Biblical knowledge and Biblical values on morality and justice, courageous refusal to submit to villains( whether it's self, other humans or demons), and the ability to manifest God's compassion on others, in order to overcome the bullies and depression permanently.

Very moving. Glad to see she seems to have loving parents. But as long as adults and kids seek self-affirmation and praises from the fellow humans instead of having faith and confidence in God, bullying will never be defeated for finality. It's also so tragic that kids are expected to be sexy and popular instead of good and proper. No wonder bullying and thirst never cease among today's kids. The true lasting strength comes from knowing the Creator God and His Son's redemption and acknowledging the reality of the human evil as it is.

As tough as it is sometimes, our value and validation should come from our creator and not from the likes of bullies.

Your missing a key difference. Yes the judges can be quite hard on some of the singers, and very much inappropriate at times, but the people who audition for this show willingly get on stage to be judged (or by your definition, "bullied."). They know right from the beginning that the judges with either like it or hate it and will not be affraid to expression their opinions. Thats a very different circumstance than the everyday bullying that occurs around schools all over the world.

I do not watch except on GodVine so, I only see the positive ones. I will say that the difference is that people on the show know about the voting. I do believe that rejection should be tempered with compassion.

I'm a bully survivor, I know the pain and hurt that it brings. It's the grace of God is what, got me through it and by His strength He made me strong to stand up and do the right thing.

This was so amazing. I teared up, she not only was good, she showed her true feelings in her song.

As I tell my young friends, if bullied, how you approach the matter, can lead you to victory. I think this video is a glimpse into the victory.

What an amazing story. She is such a beautiful young lady with a wonderful voice. I have watched this video at least a dozen times showing it to my kids and friends, and I tear up every time. God bless.
