Teenager Denied Prom Attendance Due to Bullying by Classmates

Prom is a significant turning point in the lives of high school students. It means the closing of one chapter and the beginning of a new one. Teenagers have the opportunity to shine on this special night, surrounded by their classmates with whom they have shared years of invaluable experiences, all in carefully selected outfits and make-up.

Unfortunately, not everyone wants to be there on this unforgettable evening.

Shannon Purcifer, a 16-year-old British girl, enjoyed her prom night. She bought a beautiful dress that she wanted to wear, but her wish was quickly granted.

In particular, this amazing girl suffers from a number of ailments such as ulcers and rheumatoid arthritis, which sometimes make it difficult for her to walk. As a result, she was bullied by her peers. They make light of her situation and mock her health. She decided not to go to prom because of the hurtful comments and the pressure she was under.

Shannon’s mother shared her daughter’s grief on Facebook to raise awareness of the damaging effects of bullying.

“If Shannon went to the prom tonight, she would look amazing. However, ‘because’ of her horrible classmates, she was unhappy and didn’t want to go because of the chaos.”

For a young child to endure such hardships… I don’t know a stronger young woman than her, and her mind is even more formidable. My dear, you are loved.”

People from all over the nation contacted Shannon’s mother after the story went viral, promising to help her plan a private prom for her daughter, which is exactly what this mother did.

Shannon’s friends were invited and she finally wore the clothes she bought.

Most importantly, 120 motorcycle riders came out to support the girl and help spread awareness about bullying by riding with her to her senior prom.

Being surrounded by individuals who truly cared about her, Shannon had the time of her life.

This story should serve as a reminder to always take action when you witness bullying.
