    Making Sarah Cry

    He stood among his friends from school,
    He joined their childhood games
    Laughing as they played kickball
    And when they called poor Sarah names.
    Sarah was unlike the rest;
    She was slow and not as smart,
    And it would seem to all his friends
    She was born without a heart
    And so he gladly joined their fun
    Of making Sarah cry.
    But somewhere deep within his heart,
    He never knew just why
    For he could hear his mother's voice,
    Her lessons of right and wrong
    Playing over and over inside his head
    Just like a favorite song.
    "Treat others with respect, son,
    The way you'd want them treating you.
    And remember, when you hurt others,
    Someday, someone might hurt you."
    He knew his mother wouldn't understand
    The purpose of their game
    Of teasing Sarah, who made them laugh
    As her own tears fell like rain.
    The funny faces that she made
    And the way she'd stomp her feet
    Whenever they mocked the way she walked
    Or the stutter when she'd speak.
    To him she must deserve it
    Because she never tried to hide.
    And if she truly wanted to be left alone,
    Then she should stay inside.
    But every day she'd do the same:
    She'd come outside to play,
    And stand there, tears upon her face,
    Too upset to run away.
    The game would soon be over.
    As tears dropped from her eyes,
    For the purpose of their fun
    Was making Sarah cry.
    It was nearly two whole months
    He hadn't seen his friends.
    He was certain they all must wonder
    What happened and where he'd been
    So he felt a little nervous
    As he limped his way to class.
    He hoped no one would notice,
    He prayed no one would ask
    About that awful day:
    The day his bike met with a car,
    Leaving him with a dreadful limp
    And a jagged-looking scar.
    So he held his breath a little
    As he hobbled into the room,
    Where inside he saw a "Welcome Back" banner
    And lots of red balloons.
    He felt a smile cross his face
    As his friends all smiled, too
    And he couldn't wait to play outside-
    His favorite thing to do.
    So the second that he stepped outdoors
    And saw his friends all waiting there,
    He expected a few pats on the back-
    Instead, they all stood back and stared.
    He felt his face grow hotter
    As he limped to join their side
    To play a game of kickball
    And of making Sarah cry.
    An awkward smile crossed his face
    When he heard somebody laugh
    And heard the words, "Hey freak,
    Where'd you get that ugly mask?"
    He turned expecting Sarah,
    But Sarah could not be seen.
    It was the scar upon his own face
    That caused such words so mean.
    He joined in their growing laughter,
    Trying hard to not give in
    To the awful urge inside to cry
    Or the quivering of his chin.
    They are only teasing
    He made himself believe.
    They are still my friends;
    They'd never think of hurting me.
    But the cruel remarks continued
    About the scar and then his limp.
    And he knew if he shed a single tear
    They'd label him a wimp.
    And so the hurtful words went on,
    And in his heart he wondered why.
    But he knows without a doubt
    The game would never end, until they made him cry.
    And just when a tear had formed,
    He heard a voice speak out from behind.
    "Leave him alone you bullies,
    Because he's a friend of mine".
    He turned to see poor Sarah,
    Determination on her face,
    Sticking up for one of her own tormentors
    And willing to take his place.
    And when his friends did just that,
    Trying their best to make poor Sarah cry,
    This time he didn't join in,
    And at last understood exactly why.
    "Treat others with respect, son,
    The way you'd want them treating you.
    And remember, when you hurt others,
    Someday, someone might hurt you."
    It took a lot of courage
    But he knew he must be strong,
    For at last he saw the difference
    Between what's right and wrong.
    And Sarah didn't seem so weird.
    Through his understanding eyes.
    Now he knew he'd never play again
    The game of making Sarah cry.
    It took several days of teasing
    And razzing from his friends,
    But when they saw his strength,
    They chose to be like him.
    And now out on the playground,
    A group of kids meets every day
    For a game of kickball and laughter
    And teaching their new friend, Sarah, how to play.

    You guys are all barking up the entirely wrong trees. I am a unique and beautiful snowflake and my heart does not break for just any old sad movie or humanitarian crisis!

    Wrong you are not.

    To be eligible, you must post your own, original material. Third party stories are fair game, but the text must be written by you. Images and video are okay, too, if they're your own creation.

    Furthermore:

    FWIW, I did watch the dog abuse video, and it was very tastefully done (not a cheap shock flick). It actually spends more time emphasizing the positive side, with dogs being loved the way they should. It only shows a few of the sad images further in, then concludes with a couple more positive images. I thought it was very effective, since it motivates you to help, instead of just depressing you.

    In general, animal abuse just pisses me off more than anything (and I'm not easily angered). There's a German Shepherd that lives at our local Humane Society (not in the adoption kennels - he's the resident office dog). Several years ago, a bunch of highschool brats got drunk at a bonfire. For entertainment, they doused this dog with gasoline and pushed him into the fire. That just makes me really, really pissed. I would gladly dump gasoline on those little snots and light them up, and I'd sleep very well that night.

    What makes me cry is the story of how the people at the Humane Society took him in, and through loving, heroic efforts, nursed him back to health despite his horrific condition. He actually grew all of his hair back. They named him Phoenix, of course. And kept him as the office dog. If you go there now, you'll see that they have a really nice bed set up for him in a back office room, with the usual assortment of goofy looking dog toys. Including some awful stuffed purple thing that looks like a cheap toy from one of those crane games, but has clearly received a lot of "love" from Phoenix. He's an old dog now, gray-muzzled and a little stiff in his walk. But he has that very content, secure old-dog look of a creature that's gotten a lot of affection from consistent, kind people. He looks like he's never known anything other than the kind of life a dog loves.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.
