MARIAN CLENNON FOM AUSTIN MINNESOTA SPEAKS

Marian J. Clennon Speaks:

I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT WHAT YOU TAUGHT IS STICKING WITH ME. iT IS A STRANGE FEELING SOMETIMES WHEN I REALIZE IT. SOMETIMES SOME OF MY OLD FRIENDS GET A LITTLE FRUSTRATED THAT I AM NOT THE OLD ME THAT KEPT REACTING.

STAYING POSITIVE IS A VERY DIFFICULT THING. ONCE YOU GET STARTED IT IS HARD TO STOP.ONE THING THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST THAT YOU TEACH IS THAT CHANGE IN YOUR ATTITUDE DOESN’T NECESSARILY HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.

LIKE ANY CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE, IT IS GRADUAL.I STILL HAVE A WAY TO GO BUT LOVE EVEN SEEING THE CHANGE IN MY LIFE.

THANK YOU SCARY!!

Hi Scary,

You visited my school a week ago today, where you spoke to the year 13s of Sharnbrook Upper. I tried the 7 days 7 nights, but found it really difficult. I learnt something about myself doing that, I realised how all the petty words that fly out your mouth in anger do nothing except spread that anger. You don’t feel any better for them, and neither does any one else. I’m not going to give up now, just because it’s been 7 days, and I hope I get better at it as time goes on.

I know in no way am I as bad off as some, I’ve made it through my stormy years of school where I had nowhere to turn from the bullying, but I still found you immensely helpful, thank you.

I hope you are well, I know even the strongest of people sometimes need an extra 17th hug.

FROM SUMNER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN AUSTIN MINNESOTA

Hello Scary Guy,

How are you?  We are doing extremely good.  We wish you could come to our school again so more people would change.  We would like you to be our teacher and teach us how to treat people and animals with respect.  We think that you are a person who was sent to teach the world about kindness.  Could you please teach us more about bullying?  If you come again we think people will change even more.

Some people changed in our school.  Some students stopped bullying.  All grades are being nice.  We treat others with respect now.  We respect friends and teachers.  Kids are helping each other join in fun activities.  Students are helping students when they need help

We thank you for trying to help everyone else in our school to be a better person.  Before you came some people were getting bullied and when you came you taught them how to be nice.  Our parents wish that they could see you on your next visit.

Your best classroom,

Ms. Cook’s class

A MESSAGE FROM SEAN . . . ROCK ON SEAN!!!

Scary,

I must say at the opening of your lecture, I was intimidated, somewhat scared, and anxious to hear what you had to say. As you walked into the room, there was dead silence as if disbelief took hold of the room, even though we all knew prior as to what you would look like with the tatoos and rough exterior. However, as the lecture progressed, I started to relax and become comfortable. You truly stand for the expression “never judge a book by it’s cover”. You truly are one of the most genuine people I have ever heard and your personality is both contagious and inspirational. I have reached out to thank you, Scary. I have never been more inspired in my life. Not to say I was a bad person to begin with, but to stop all the prejudgments I have towards people before I even know their name. If I had a nickel for everytime I saw a fat guy and turned towards my friend and made a remark, I’d probably have a good amount of money. Every person carries a unique story and each should be looked at as such, not all categorized in derogatory stereotypes people make in order to boost their own self-esteem as you have mentioned in your lecture at Rider University this past Monday.

I would be lieing if I said this 7 day challenge was easy, because it certainly is not, but I am working on it. Society is becoming more and more cruel with each new generation. Best friends calling each other names in “kidding” fashion and women becoming more and more used as objects for people’s sexual enjoyment. I can’t help the world as you say, but I am starting to save mine. I want my mind to become pure and full of love. With your inspirational words and accomplishments, I believe it can be done. Good luck on your quest to lecture those fortunate enough to hear your words and for future successes coming your way. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences and revelations and for opening the eyes of many.

Sincerely,
Sean O’Hara

A LETTER FROM ROBYN

I recently joined a group facebook page about Tucson and our memories thereof. The Scary Guy came up as a memory, and I thought you’d want to know.

I remember being with my young son, probably 6 or 7 at the time and going into the restaurant connected to The Gaslight Theater and seeing The Scary Guy sitting there. My son asked me about him and all I knew about him at the time was that he actually changed his name legally to The Scary Guy and it was because of how he looked. But, not to judge him.

I am so pleasantly surprised to read up on the Scary Guy and see how he is helping communities with acceptance, and bullying and I\\\’m so proud of him. I have three kids who all have been bullied in their schools, and probably were participants as well, unfortunately, and I wish our schools, communities had more Scary Guy’s to teach our young as it now goes into the media age of computers and smartphones.

I never knew all the great work The Scary Guy has been doing, and feel proud he was part of our Tucson community and memories.

SHANA HOLDEN IS TEACHING HER CHILDREN

Dear Scary,

Years ago you shared your message with my children and gave them each signed photos to remind them of what they had learned. That day, you won my respect, admiration and continued support. I share what I learned from you whenever I can, and I tell people about you often.

I am a longtime fan and will continue to do whatever I can to help bring your message to the world.

The world is a better place for having Scary Guy in it!
Thank you for your hard work and dedication!
