    I had a friend Pam who broke her leg when she was in 5th grade and had to use crutches and I helped her too, but not in class since I was in 6th grade. She lived across the street so I helped her as much as I could. Of course I practiced walking on her crutches but didn’t like it and felt sorry for her having to use them all the time.

    Yeah, really beautiful the way Lynn ditched her poor crippled friend. Her nice words now didn’t do Carol a bit of good back then when she was cast aside.

    It sounds like Carol knew how to handle those things. And, please, Lynn said she was little when she knew Carol. That was a very grown-up situation she was in and, yes, confusing. Especially the unfortunately typical nastiness of the other children. We become old and wise by living through these things, reflecting on them, and becoming better people as a result. You may be old, but you need the change the “wisest.”

    Yeah, people do alot of stupid stuff when we’re kids.
    .
    Guess you were never a kid, huh? Never did anything selfish? You were never rude? Said or did anyhing unconscionable? Ever?
    .
    Yeah, I thought so. You can’t cast the first stone. Or any stone for that matter!
    Lynn’s friend Carol wasn’t stupid.

    You are talking about the conduct of a six year old child who was trying to navigate a confusing situation. You, of course, being ‘oldest and wisest’, would never cast stones at anyone and certainly not at a six year old.

    Well, looks like you need a new screen name. Try “EllyLynn Hater”. That might be more logical.

    As a child, I never could understand picking on a kid who was crippled, he can’t help it. I saw that and stood up for many who were “different”. Sadly, I got accused of picking on a boy with a club foot(by him) and I couldn’t make it right. Many people who are crippled or disfigured get mean and like to bait people, like a boy with horrible fire scars on his face and body, used to like to bother girls and say things like “they wouldn’t go out with him”. His attitude sucked and that was the main reason.
    When I became disabled, I tried my best to be a regular guy, my kids and grandkids accept it fine.

    How many of us are willing to admit publicly thatwe’ve done things in the past that we are ashamed of now. She didn’t have to say anything at all.
