If I knew that people in my school felt this way about me I would feel very depressed and like I wouldn't want to go to school anymore because I wouldn't earn to be in an invirment where people would go out f there comfort zone to avode me. I would like to be surrounded by people who don't except me for who I am.
I would feel horrible that everyone wouldn't want to come near me. My self- esteem would become so low knowing they wouldn't want to even be within a foot of me. And to know they would do this every day, would make me get angry.
If I had to go to school every day knowing that all the kids would treat me bad I'd feel. . . angry at them for not including me, while I know that they can't help it. I'd feel upset. Thinking if nobody wants to even come near me how can I reach my full potential, try out for the team, knowing if I make it nobody will pass to me. I don't know because I would want to feel respected and if that wasn't happening, I probably would feel alone. If someone came to the rescue, maybe I'd feel better...
I think that if I were someone that no one didn't want to get close to would feel bad and feel left out. I would also feel that I am on a different level then everyone and that I am not worth as much as them. In the morning before school I would feel like I would do everyone a favor by not going to school.
I would feel awful about myself, I already have a health affect and people really notice it! I mean I personally think that not getting close or touching people with a problem with them is not being respectful. I think that bullies or people that tease need to be a little apathetic... How would they feel if people made fun of them? I actually was just helping my older brother from college empty his car and get settled in since he is done for college, we were also looking through memory lane; - yearbooks, photo albums,& memory boxes. In eight grade there was a kid in his yearbook that had a disordered face...( NOT TRYING TO BE MEAN) and my older brother gave me this whole lecture on how they were always nice to him and how I should be to to kids like that! I agree, so that's how I feel!!
I would feel really bad that because i look different they dont even touch me.and the fact that they would make a scene about it thinking it was funny would make me feel even worst!
I would feel very insecure and depressed. I don't think that anyone should be treated that way even if they look different! Even knowing that people didn't want to touch me because of the way i looked would make me feel very sad and insecure! I wouldn't want to even go to school if people felt that way about me.
If that happened to me everyday at school I would feel a great deal of disrespect towards me. If someone would just bump into me and act like it was the most disgusting thing they have ever done it would really disappoint me. The class mates that are doing this to me or anyone else I would feel a strong dislike for them.
If i new that my classmates felt this way about me I would try to stay away from them. If I never saw them, I wouldn't have to deal them. I would stay closer to the people who don't care about bumping into me. I'd rather avoid the reaction from them either. That is how I would feel if people felt this way about me.
In the book kids at school are afraid to touch August. It's almost as if they think he's toxic and they'll look like him if their hands make contact or they bump in to him at the hallway. If kids at my school felt this way I would beg my mom not to go to school. It almost feels like in their eyes your not a person, just a piece of dirt that they can kick around when in reality you're a human who has feelings too and gets hurt when people like Julian make rude comments about something you can not control. I would not want to go to school knowing these things were being thought about me when when I can't do anything to stop whatever condition I have. It's like in after ever when Jeffery is blaming his families debt and Steven moving to Africa on his cancer. Dr galley was explaining to him that he didn't wish for cancer or ask for it in any way therefore all of his problems were not his fault. In wonder it isn't Augusts fault that he was born the way he was. There's nothing he can do noe but be optimistic and make the best out if his situation.
If I knew about this I would feel really bad about it and do something about it. To be specific I would talk to that classmate and tell them its ok. next I would talk to the people doing it and tell them that they are just a person and if you can get close or touch each other than you can do the same with him or her. And if it kept going on I would tell someone about it and said this person is felling bad and becoming sad and felt left out because of this problem. Everybody's a person and are equally important no matter who you are and if you don't feel that way just know that someone cares and loves you now mater what happens.
I would feel a bit embarrassed. Especially when I'm in school around my peers. This is because its an uncomfortable feeling to know that people don't want to get near you. I would be very upset and I would probably low my self esteem.
I would feel very angry and disappointed if I was in Augie's place. Everyone is equal. No one should be treated like that. If that did happen to me, me self-esteem would go very low, and I would probably have trouble with many things because of that.
I do not think that I would want to go to school if I had to put up with people making fun of me. They are trying to make August feel different and he is really not. If they just talked to him like he was a friend, he is really cool. Summer is the only girl that does that. She comes to August's table and says, "Hi it nice to meet you." Now they sit there every day. All she said was that, but other kids do not want to even touch him and that would make me feel horrible.
I would probably feel worthless and disguisting, an outcast, because of the fact that people would go out of their way to avoid me and go the other way or something incase they o touch me. In the end with so much of this kind of stuff going on I would start to not find ways to be friends with people like her classmates but instead I would probably hold it against them and hate them. August is a better person than I am because I would have been fed up with this and start changing, good or bad.
