20. There was one of those kids in my kindergarten class
named Billy. I believe his parents took him away from that particular school because of all the tormenting he took. I've actually tried to find out something about him so I could send him a heartfelt anonymous appology some 30 years later, but haven't found anything on him yet. I understand that we were just kids, but I've promised my daughters serious punishnment if I ever hear of them making fun of someone for a stituation that they can't help.
