A Cut Too Far

A Cut Too FarSuspended Series

Written by Herman Brown

Chase is unique. He plays baseball. His parents are divorced. He has a younger sister. He has friends in high school. He also has a bully. Ivan has bullied Chase since elementary school. Chase has tried to stay out of Ivan’s way and take the bullying, both physical and verbal, without drawing attention to himself.

When Ivan posted on Facebook a picture of Chase’s family—his mother’s boyfriend is from Iran—and labeled it “terrorist” Chase had enough. He was going to make Ivan pay—somehow. With the help of a camera and Chase’s friend’s computer he posted pictures of Chase. The whole thing backfired. Chase was suspended from school instead of being arrested. Chase learned that taking this matter into his own hands was not the right way to deal with it. Chase’s reaction of being suspended was unexpected and good.

We all need help to deal with some things in our lives. Chase received that help and made this better.
