Margaret Jensvold, Maryland Mom Who Killed Son Ben Barnhard, Agonized Over School Costs

Whether or not it is "healthier­" to be thin is a moot point. This boy, whatever size he was, should not have had to endure taunting. We need to stop giving carte blanche to those who scapegoat larger people. Cruelty is cruelty.
