Jase Jergensmeyer was the bully that tortured me growing up--the kind of boy who would pull my pigtails and call me names in elementary school. He was never supposed to be anything other than a menace. He wasn't meant to be anything other than the definition of what I didn't want.
Things don't always happen the way we plan, and sometimes we ask God why he puts things in our path, but the most important thing to remember is: Life is an adventure, and if we all knew how it would play out, we never really would be living, would we?
You know me as Shelby, the eight-year-old girl that went through hell with my sister, Ari, but I have my own story to tell.
