Maybe you don’t remember me; maybe you don’t remember any of us, I don’t know, maybe you blocked away all those memories.
I just wanted to say sorry. Sorry for bullying you. I know it was just elementary school, but I also know the kind of scars that can stay on a person’s heart for years, decades even.
You never deserved to be called the names we called you or treated the way we treated you. We should not have ostracized you, excluded you, and I apologize. I was a real little cunt in fourth grade, you know that?
Anyway, I hope you’ve forgiven us all, or maybe will someday. If you don’t, I undertstand that too. Kids are cruel, but that is no excuse. I’m going to raise my children to treat others with more respect than I gave you.
