It's funny how memories stick with us like that. I too can remember two embarrassing times whenthe mean girls picked on my clothes. Your well-written story really shows how something that seems trivial to adults canbe devastating to a kid.

I can feel your embarrassment. Great descriptions. Amazing what we remember.

Isn’t it sad how as children we desired to “fit-in” so badly, that we were often more concerned about how other children viewed us, than how God viewed us. Sadder still is than many never seem to grow past this.

Makes you wonder today if the same children that made fun of the disadvantaged ones, have as strong a memory of how sorry they acted, especially if they are now saved.

Whatever we go through, from whatever side our perspective, God can and does use it as a learning tool for us.

This made me ponder well beyond the initial story, so good job.
Congratulations in placing 10th in level 3 and 29 overall.
