40 (who?)
"She's weird."
"That's your sister?"

Insults... jabbed left and right.
Every time, I will be her shield.
Those insults will bounce right off of me,
because I won't let her get hurt.

"You're Charlotte's sister?
No offense, but she's weird."

It's not her fault she has autism.
Every time you attempt to hurt her - in fact, the first time
you ever tried - I lose respect for you.
One nasty comment, and you're forever disliked.

"Aren't you ever embarrassed
to call her your sister?"

Actually, if you make fun of her like that,
I'd be embarrassed to call you my friend, if you ever were.
She's beautiful; you just haven't taken the time to
look beneath the surface.
When I was in 7th grade, we were running laps around the gym in PE when an 8th grader caught up to me. He asked me, "Are you Charlotte's sister?"

To which I replied, "Yes..."

"Oh, well no offense, but she's kind of weird."

Comments like that make my blood boil. I didn't even know the guy's name, and I hate him to this day. He had no right to say that; he didn't even know my sister. She has such a beautiful personality.

That's why I hate when people make fun of her. In fact, when they make fun of anyone with autism. It's not funny; no one's laughing.

I really love my sister and when I told her about that 8th grader, this is what she said: "I don't care. I don't even know the guy, so how is what he says supposed to hurt me?"

I know there are people who secretly make fun of her every day, but seeing how strong she is about it gives me hope.

Thank you for being my older sister and my role-model. :huggle:
