The author reflects on his experience of being bullied. The author says that he figured out that making people laugh and having a little dangerous quality were excellent ways to keep the bullies away. He cites his experience when he was bullied by a girl and he punched her which leads her to stop. He adds that while everyone has an obligation to acknowledge and fight bullying among youth, people have to acknowledge that a society without conflict is undesirable.
