ABSTRACT
The article presents a personal narrative of experiences of being bullied when the author was a student. She relates how she was bullied, both physically and psychologically, during her elementary years. She relates how she was able to stop the bullying only after she herself used violence. She argues that current zero tolerance and bullying policies fail to consider the complex and painful emotions that are the main cause of school violence.
