Today I am moving away from my usual topics on this blog. This is a public letter.
Today I heard abou two other girls who have committed suicide Jade and Marjorie, because they have been bullied to a point where they can not tolerate it anymore. This year more than 5 teenagers commited suicide for being bullied by being gay. Including Jamye and Tyler. More kids may be as desperate as these adolescents and may think of killing themselves. They were all kids in the beginning of their lifes. This just shouldn’t happen.
If you know about someone who has been bullied in the past, is being bullied now or seems unhappy when facing the fact to go to school or hang out with friends, do take act now. Talk to that young person, ask questions, check with them, be sure that they are ok.
A great person once told me that “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem”.
Bullying isn’t necessarily physical, it can go from a single shove, hurting words, verbal abuse and cyberbullying. They may have been threaten and feel that they is no escape. Let’s do something, before it is too late.
