Update on Brandon

Posted on Wednesday night:

Thanks to everyone for your prayers for Brandon. I spent most of my day on the phone and finally got fed up and called the Chief of Police. I spoke to the secretary and she had a lady officer call me back. This is the safety officer that goes to the boys' school once a month. We have no police in our schools on a regular basis.

Anyway, the constable said that there is no way the boys have to put up with this. She wants to talk to the boys and says that charges can still be laid because the boy threw Jordan into the street. There is no statue of limitations on assault and she says it definitely was assault. She is going to get back to me and get this straightened out.

Thanks again for all your prayers. I am exhausted so am heading to bed early. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. You are such a great Grandma. I am sure it means to world to those boys to know that not only are their parents standing up for them, but so are their Grandparents.

  2. Hi Mary,
    I'm so glad they are going to pursue this. As others have said, no child should have to fear going to school.
    Here in our town we have two police officers at each public high school campus. (None up to grade 8)
    Hope you can relax a bit.

  3. Good for you Grandma! Good for you.. We stick up for our grandbabies like a wounded animal! I hope to shout that this gets something done at that school... there is just no need for that,,,,,,,, I pray that something comes out of this......

    again Good for you!!!

  4. Good for you no child shoud be afraid of school. I was once a victim of a bully in grade school,we ended up in the same JR.High school(it is now called middle school) on day he was gettting of the bus as I was whe he hit me from behind and I fell frokm the bus step onto the ground,I got up he was laughing at me and I just had had enough of his abuse,I landed a punch into his nose and it was so hard that bvlood was gushing out of his nose.Never again did he ever bother me again.

  5. Mary, I hope y'all can get something done and soon. There is no excuse for allowing bullying to go on, especially when there are rules and laws in place that should be enforced. And in this case it's progressed beyond bullying to assault!

    Love and prayers,


  6. Right now Mary, I am so very proud of you for taking a stand and following through until you got some type of reaction -and now, hopefully some real action too!
    Peace and blessings and hoping all things turn around for Brandon -and his brother as well!

  7. Oh goody! Someone gets it! I'm happy for you. In the meantime, forgive me if you mentioned this before and sometimes I lose track however, have you ever heard that a Celiac diet as well as no dairy actually helps with Asperger's?

  8. Mary
    You go girl. Don't mess with Grandma. Peace

  9. Aw, Mary, I'm so sorry this is happening to your sweet, sweet grandsons! I know it must be just breaking your heart! They're in my prayers, and so are you!

    I remember school--so many bullies and mean, mean kids. It's a shame, it really is!

    Guess I got in a bit of a hurry!



  11. I am so sorry about your Grandson's being bullied. I hope that things will be gotten under control now that the police are involved.

    No one should have to live in fear, poor guy.
    God bless.

  12. Oh Mary, I'm late hearing about this...I'm so sorry Brandon has been so bullied at school!
    So glad you are so on top of this!

    I wasn't physically bullied but emotionally in 5th-6th grade and it was SO painful...


  13. So glad that something can be done!! This was such a shame that they were so mean to the boys.

    I just posted a new post and explained all about what is going on with my health!! I so appreciate your asking every one to pray!!! You are a good Grandma and a wonderful friend! Love and hugs, Grams

  14. Praise BE!!!! Finally. I sure hope she can help get this all straightened out and that charges are soon pending on the kid that assaulted Brandon.

    I send you a giant HIGH FIVE!!!

    I've just now finished working on my blog roll. It was an all day job.

    Oh, Mary...I DO hope this will all be behind everyone, I hope this other kid gets some reprimanding by the law officers. This news just made my day.

    Please do keep us updated.

  15. There is no cause for a child to be or feel unsafe at school or anywhere else for that matter. He is so lucky to have you in his corner. I will pray for all of you...Mary

  16. Mary,

    I am so sorry about Brandon's troubles. I had no idea this was going on. I am part of a prayer blog called Hearts in One Accord and I am going to ask for prayer for Brandon.

    I would like you to meet Susan at Penless Writer. I guess I always assumed you two were friends, but I don't think you know each other. I think you would be great friends. She is the one who put together the prayer blog. Here is her link:

    If you cannot get to her through this, please come to my blog and click on Penless Writer.

    I will tell her about you too!

    Have a good weekend. I pray that the Lord will bless you and your family and resolve these issues with Brandon.

    Hugs, Sharon

  17. Mary,

    This is the best news!! I knew if anyone could get action, it is you. And I knew you wouldn't stop trying. You really are the best Grandma and an outstanding person. Three cheers for the police officer you talked to. Finally, someone who knows and is willing to do her job!

    I hope this goes well and is quickly resolved so the boys can start to heal. My heart and prayers are with them and you!

    Love and hugs,
