I posted this on Facebook and Twitter and it generated comments from people who told their stories of being bullied. Perhaps by posting it here it will help others who are suffering or are looking for ways to help.
[Jesus] stood up to read and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:16-19.)
