What does Ja’Meya’s story make you think about and feel? As an athlete and an honor student, how does Ja’Meya defy your assumptions about the victims of bullying?  How do you explain Ja’Meya’s decision to bring a gun on theschool bus? What do you think should be the consequences for her action? Does it matter that she did not intend to hurt anyone? What, if any, lessons can we draw from her story? Ja’Meya is African American. How might race influence the way that people respond to her story? How might it influence your understanding of the situation?
