    I don't suffer bullies well...I learned about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder when i was a kid after picking myself up off the floor. My father was an Army veteran with PTSD. In grade school i was a Cub Scout. My friend Timmy, who was also a Cub Scout was crying one day. He had Cerebral Palsy and was being picked on by bullies when he walked to school. I began walking Timmy to school. When the bullies stopped us on the way to school one day, i said to the bullies if you want to pick on Timmy you have to go through me. I was afraid, but I said, you and your fellow bullies may beat me up, but you will know you that you were in a fight. Nine out of ten times the cowards/bullies backed down. The tenth time i they usually called uncle because i was winning the fight. One of the reasons I founded Diveheart was so that people of all abilities can stand up to the cowards/bullies of the world with new confidence, independence and self esteem. #bullies #bullying #bully #bullied #selfesteem #confidence#independence #love #hope #healing #diveheart #charity #scubatherapy

    I love it. You've always been a proponent for others. Diveheart is a rare organization where you get out far, far more out of it than you'll ever put in to it. A purpose, life long friends and mad skills in regards to situational awareness and buoyancy control.

    But it's so true. It's one thing to maintain your own buoyancy. Learning to maintain someone else's buoyancy along with yours at the same time forces you to understand the various vectors affecting you.
