Turning the Curve on Bullying

Remembering Anna Packer

In exactly 10 days it will be 7 years ago that Anna Packer decided that this would be her last day on earth. Sometime around this very moment, between 4 and 6PM she decided that her life was not worth living anymore. She was tired of the ridicule, the teasing, and the name calling. She was tired of being followed home from school by her bullies. This year Anna would have been 21 on April 21st. Her mother always thought that this would have been a special day for her because she would have been 21 on the 21st. The thought still to this day still haunts her and the rest of her family.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
