Kayleigh From Sharnbrook Upper School on The 7 Day Challenge

Kayleigh From Sharnbrook Upper School on The 7 Day Challenge
by The Scary Guy on Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 8:40pm ·
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.

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.

BEN SPEAKS OUT!

Hey Scary

I just wanted to let you know you are an awesome man, your message needs to be heard by so many more.
I want to post/favorite your videos here in the chance that someone will stumble upon them, the way I have & think a little bit different

I watched about all your videos & found out about you quite a few years back.
My forehead chin neck arms scalp chest etc are fully tattooed & colorful like yours & most
people believe it or not ha actually are really cool for the most part to me about it.

When some ones not or when people don’t understand I try to set a positive example by making them see I’m no different…
I just look different, more colorful, people will say to me that I’m scary at times too even but it doesn’t bother me.
I did my tattoos in a way that I don’t see how they could feel that way but then again I think I’m a bit more open minded than most.

I talked to you on myspace a few years back when I was on there.
I’d love to be able to meet you one day give you a big bear hug & just to tell you what an impact
you have had & how wonderful you are.

I will remember your message always!!!
Much love scary you are the man, keep up the good fight!
Love,
Ben

STEPHANIE TELLS HER STORY

Dear Scary,

About a decade ago, the PTA council I belonged to was in the middle of a heated debate.
Should we bring this “scary guy” in to help with the new zero tolerance push from the school district.
My son was about eight at the time, and school was not going well for him.
He was always the kid at the end of the zero tolerance inquisition.
So I really wasn’t keen about another guy coming in and telling me what was wrong with my son.

Some fliers were passed around about the message this guy had, and I quickly realized
the discussion was about how he appeared not the message. I was interested to hear what
this guy had to say. So my vote was to bring Scary Guy to our elementary school.
Our world was harsh surroundings for my son, nothing he could do was right in the eyes
of the principal, staff, or kids. But the message of love and acceptance kept us hanging
on this pasts decade.

The school district my son was at nearly drove him to desperation, recommended medication,
and finally just threw him away. But the words and beliefs of the Scary Guy lingered.
Through a miracle of sorts, our paths crossed with Scary in 2007.

My son was just going through the motions trying to pull himself back together after the
abuse from the kids and teachers. Scary spoke with him at length in one on one sessions,
and out on road tours for charitable organizations. His words helped strengthen my whole family.
His lovely writer, Cathryn provides a inspirational muse to the troubled soul.

We are happy to report Calvin is in college, and faced with an upcoming transplant.
Sadly, he still gets harassed in person and on FaceBook, with threats and negative comments.
But with someone like Scary in his life, nothing can hold him back from success.

Love you,
Stephanie

JACOB WAKES UP AND MAKES CHANGES

Dear Scary Guy,

You may not remember me but I was a troubled student from the Albion High School, you visited our school and made me an example of anger because of my broken hand caused from punching a wall.

At firs, I was embarrassed and naturally filled with anger.

Although since then, I have followed your advice and I have come out of a very dark point in my life.

I was going to fail my exams and end up in a dead end job but thanks to your techniques for harbouring my emotions, I have become disciplined and have started to attend college.

My social life has also improved as some of you techniques helped me with people skills. My family has also started to accept me as an actual person now whereas before I was seen as the dark horse of the family.

Please keep doing what you’re doing because if you change just one more person’s life like you have mine, you will do a hell of a lot!

Words can’t describe how thankful I am towards you.
You Rock !!!
Jacob Yates

XAVIAR’S LIFE HAS CHANGED

Hey Scary,

This is Xaviar, and how my life has been changed through your message.

In my past I was in a group where we made fun of people we did not like, and we gave people names that we thought described the person, and what we thought were funny, including athletes.

Then when I was in eighth grade. You came to my school, and your message changed my life completely around. I left the group I was hanging out with, and I started hanging out with other people, and calling people their actual name, and even became friends with the athletes, and even went out for sports.

I graduated from Wray high school in 2008, and I am currently attending Northwest Nazarene University located in Nampa, ID.
                                                                                                                           Friend,
