I’m sure by now your facebook newsfeed has been flooded with news of a 15 year old girl, Amanda Todd, who was bullied so much that it has resulted in her suicide. The girl made a youtube video a few weeks prior, documenting her bullying. You can watch it here:
First of all, I want to say how awful it is to have someone who is just beginning their life to be cursed with such hate. We ALL make mistakes Some make really big ones, and some have huge consequences. But who are we to judge whose mistakes are bigger than others? Sure, she did some things to make one girl angry, by sleeping with her boyfriend. But what good does it do to make her life a living hell? That makes us just as bad, if not worse. I understand being angry at someone. But what I do not understand is going out of my way to make someones life miserable, and even after their DEATH, still defacing her name on her memorial page and showing absolutley no sign of remourse. Sure, what she did might have been bad, but is it THAT bad where these bullies can’t even show some respect? Where is the human decency?
I WANT TO START A REVOLUTION. A BULLY REVOLUTION. I would like you all to say something you’re sorry for. I KNOW we all have at least one bully story, and if we weren’t a direct part of it, we at least stood by and watched it happen. I know I did. I really hope if we start apologizing and forgiving, our schools and lives could be so much better.
