Natalie Hampton's experience in middle school left her with painful memories she won't soon forget.
In seventh and eighth grade, she was bullied relentlessly. Often, she came home with multiple bruises and scars from the encounters.
"The worst incident was when a girl held scissors pointed at my throat saying that she felt a desperate urge to slit my throat," writes Natalie in an email. "I don’t know if my memories of that incident will ever fade."
