Recently, the Arthur A. Richards K-8 school on St. Croix set out to stamp out bullying. Their intensive anti-bullying platform brought back memories from when I was 10.

Fifty years ago I was bullied when I went to a day camp. Mercilessly verbally attacked by an older camper, I was terrified. For days I was sick with the thought of having to go to camp, but was too frightened to tell anyone.
