Standing up against bullies

Speaking with a little sass and a lot of passion, “Glee” actress Lauren Potter stole the show when she joined forces with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to say “enough is enough” to bullying special-needs children.
"I was a victim of bullying,” said Miss Potter, who has Down syndrome and portrays cheerleader Becky Jackson on the hit Fox television series. Forcing back tears, Miss Potter said ...that the other students “thought it was OK, just because I looked different than they did.”
“They didnt think they would get in trouble because I was just a Down’s girl,” she said. “But this Down’s girl spoke up, and told those boys that called me names to grow up. Everyone seemed shocked.”
