We are Atheism essay
Surprisingly, I submitted an essay to http://www.weareatheism.com/ and they -ACTUALLY- accepted it. Considering my age, I didn't think they'd so willingly put mine on the website. I guess teens do have a voice.

Nice.

But this is so not how I imagined you would look like. If that is your picture...

RE: We are Atheism essay
Wow! You write so clearly, nice essay! And thanks for sharing your story, you are brave.

You know, if you pull all your emotions away from this very emotional story, you can see how on a social level your classmates act. When one is different in the social realm the others isolate and target that different individual. It just shows how those terms work in dynamics vs what 'a good christian' should have done- which is maybe invite you into conversation and show love to bring you back. But they were kids and all they had were their instincts to survive. It's unfortunate the bully experience you had (and that was bullying), but you seem so positive and it seems like you've made choices for yourself that will help you assert who you are as an individual in this world. Good for you!

And congrats on getting your essay in!

Very cool! It's great that you are strong enough already to stand up for what you believe (or don't believe).

Well written Essay. I actually read it all the way through hahah. Not an easy feat these days as I have become just another easily distracted internet user.

This is a two-year-old picture, though I guess it resembles me fairly well.

Thanks, and I know very well that it was bullying. They drifted from trying to "Save" me, to ouright hate.

I know what you mean. I start reading something with every intention to finish it, and then I suddenly get distracted and move to another page.

I roleplay alot. When you roleplay, you need as good of grammar as you can manage, or you'll be laughed out of the group.
