They always threw rocks at Billy, big ones too. I guess they thought it couldn’t hurt Billy because he always had his crash helmet on at school. It did hurt though, it hurt a lot, just because you’re developmentally disabled doesn’t mean you don’t have feelings too. But these kids wouldn’t know this, they just didn’t get it. All they knew was that Billy was different and a retard so throwing rocks was what they were going to do.
