Reflections On My Daughter “Standing Up Against Bullying And Cruelty In High School”

By Jennifer Miller

Jennifer Miller StrengthMy daughter told me last night about a girl she knew at school who was being bullied. She was visibly upset and showed me a horrific text that had been sent by the boy who had been verbally “attacking” this young lady.

I too had been bullied by neighborhood boys, one of which, later in life, ended up in jail. My daughter had been bullied the prior week, and stood up to the boys (and girls). She showed incredible courage in standing up for herself, while making a stand for justice and what is right.

She posted a statement on her Facebook page regarding the injustice. Some kids rallied around her, while others attacked her because she choose to say speak her mind. We talked further about what could be done to help the girl, and it was decided to bring the actions (and text) to the attention of the school. She felt that it was important to support her classmate. Dangerous and cruel actions have consequences in life.

As I watch my daughter navigate life, and stand for ethics, morals and values, I know in my heart that she will make a difference in the world.

Being kind unlocks so many doors in this harsh world. I truly believe that if every single person in America operated out of love and not out of fear and hatred, all problems would be solved. Selfishness, killings, oppression, drugs, healthcare, unemployment, war, religion, poverty, bullying… Think about it. What if people operated out of love, and treated YOU with kindness? Would you be a happier person? Would you be kinder to others?

People who are victims of these problems often need your help more than any one else. Empathize with them. Everyone has a story to tell, and sometimes words aren’t the only way of crying out for help. BE KIND. I guarantee your life will change, and so will the those who are the beneficiaries of your love and empathy. If not for anyone else, do it for yourself. Savannah Robison

A Poem For My Mother: “If Only You Knew The Things I Could Say…” By Savannah Robison

“I love you with my heart…”

Mom, 

If only you knew the things I could say,
Painting a picture of my love is a task I will slay.
 
I’ll start with the little things, for they happen so much,
A kiss on the cheek, a slap on the butt.
 
You have that special touch whether in food or in love,
But really all I need is something to be proud of.
 
You stand tall regardless of impending hardship,
You have taught me so much, like getting my grip.
 
Your beautiful blue eyes or your abs of steel,
I give you my body, and I get yours, deal?
 
Our fights are often, and we know how to punch,
But what people don’t know is what happens at brunch.
 
I guess all I can say is thank you, Mom;
I love you with my heart, you are the bomb.

“Her Light” By Savannah Robison

Her Light

She beheld the open light
Lustrously flowing,
Seeking her infinite dreams
Night overcame, the good vanished.
.
The horror of the lifeless chamber
Cold dew freezing over, extinguishing the flame.
Her shriveled body, dreary and deprived,
Of that light she sought with unfinished anxiety.
.
The jaws of the corpse detained her
Her mortal form began to sink.
Inarticulate sounds, agitation and fear
Remained the greatest subjects of her mind
She beheld that glimmer of the dimming yellow moon.
.
That bitterness and disappointment have endured
Determined to overthrow her demons,
And inhabit her once beautiful life.
Escaping the chamber, she can finally dream
A spoken refuge, who kissed her demons
That open light is infused, and will not vanish.
.

Jennifer Miller: “My Daughter, Savannah Robison, is a true Teen Warrior and Young Lady. She has seen so much in her early years. Rather than become a victim of life, she is a hero in my eyes. She lost a father and almost a brother. She has learned her inner calling and now follows her intuition…Strong beyond words. Her wisdom radiates from her core. She is a loyal friend to all that are blessed by her presence. It is interesting to observe that in not having a father in her life, she has developed great balance in her Male/Female energy.  She has learned to “father” herself and found the wisdom to identify wonderful male role models. I am truly thankful for all of them. Thank you, my wonderful daughter, for allowing me to be your Mother. I love you and I am so very proud. Love , MOM”
