Rob Raco about Bullying

Rob Raco // seen in Riverdale

I’m ‘Biting the Bullet to say, ‘Stand up for yourself.’

Growing up I was an odd kid…to everyone else. But to myself, I was me, imaginative and in my own world, thanks to my supportive, artistic family.

In school, I never really found myself in the “popular group”. In fact, I was spit on by a group of kids, punched in the face and held down as others piled snow on my face.

Now the fun part…all that energy was expurgated through my creativity. I retaliated by becoming a disciplined drummer and standing up for myself with art, not fists.

Stand up for yourself and others in need but remember you can’t fight fire with fire. Shine on! I got your back!”
