A commendation to Milan High School student Alyssa Stuart writer for telling her story

Like most others, I was amazed at the writing of Milan High School student Alyssa Stuart when she wrote about her experience of being bullied to the point of being assaulted earlier last week.

I commend Alyssa for her writing of what happened. It's tough for anyone to do, let alone a high-schooler. I was assaulted in high school, and not once did I feel the need to write about it in such detail to share my story. Especially with the way publishing is these days, it means the whole world can potentially have insight into what happened that day.

It takes writers such as Alyssa, who has written about bullying before, to help bring light to what happens in high school. It's been almost six years since I was in high school, but I'm certain some things have changed, while others have not. Unfortunately, bullying doesn't seem to have gone away, even with the loads of education against it.

Of course we will wait and see what happens, since someone has been charged in the case. Until then, it's best we look at how to help eradicate problems such as bullying, and use examples such as Alyssa's to do just that.
