I have been fortunate to receive many positive e-mails, letters and cards in response to my work. These are a few of them.
"I can't remember when I have been so pleased with an article about bullying and about my work. You grab the reader in such a personal way and connect him/her with the essence of the issue. You have a marvelous gift of keeping your readership engaged and pointing them to the nuances of children's cruelty to each other. But you also leave them with a sense of hopefulness. Thank you again for your superb column."
