"Bullying is at its root about social positioning ... The (five disabled) kids on my bus occupied the lowest rung on the food chain ... But some of the kids at their schools ... hadn't got the memo that reads: ' You don't hunt the easy meat.' ... [But after confronting kids who mocked the bus and shouted slurs and laughed] It took a while for me to understand that most of the kids on my bus were perfectly happy to be on it. .... So the problem was one of perspective - my own. ... As Vincent said: 'It makes them look stupid, not us.'" (p. 86-92)
