Last night, her brother committed suicide. He too was bullied at school. I don't have many details at this moment because I did not know him very well. I do know that he was slightly retarded.
I'm not the type of person to go out and adamately protest something. Just ask a lot of my friends. These recent circumstances however, have led me to the measures that I normally wouldn't take. Bullying needs to stop.
Every victim who commits suicide is the friend of someone, whether they are direct friends or not. The pain from losing a friend is more than I can describe. No one should ever have to go through that pain. So I'm going to challenge you all. I want to you to find at least one person everyday to say something nice to; compliment them. And if you see them getting beat up or pushed around and you know that it isn't jokingly, step in and stop it. You just may save someone's life and someone from unmeasurable pain.
If you know someone who has comitted suicide from bullying or for any reason. Post here and help me keep this thread alive.
