Default Anti-bullying month: The Story of Amanda Todd

October is anti-bullying month. There's probably a story similar to this in every city, but wanted to share this. This is a local girl who recently commited suicide over being bullied.

The Story of Amanda Todd

This girl killed herself shortly after this video.

Obviously there will be mixed reviews about this video, but let's not try to deviate too far from the actual message.

I dont mean to sound harsh or to blame her, but why didnt she just get off social networking sites?

Nevertheless bullies are horrible people.

Better yet, why didn't she press charges or have police investigate who this stalker was through FB?

But yes, bullies are horrible

damn thats really sad
especially the last couple cards

the cruelty of some kids/teenagers is shocking at times, and of course its worse because of mob mentality (gotta be mean to fit in)

she struggled so much, and people beat her while she was on the ground...
poor girl

It's surreal that this happened in my city, in fact my nephews knew about this girl. People are going batty in this city, kids skipping school today because of this

I hate bullying. You shouldn't pick on someone that is weaker or smaller than yourself. As a kid I've went through both phases. The Bully and the bullied phase. Bullying as been around since the beginning of time. But why is it so political now. Why is there a anti-bullying month..is that really necessary? I hate politicians.

Don't âuck with anyone bigger than you.

Anyways relating to the video there's a lot of girls around my age who are on tumblr instagram etc who constantly complain about being depressed and how they want to kill themselves. It's sad cause they think it's cool or something. There's some kids who have a normal family life, don't get bullied, have a decent amount of friends and still cut themselves. I mean obviously I don't know what's in their head or what they're going through but some girls are just

I know exactly what you mean and it's the media brah, shit gets to their heads. They watch too much MTV and other stupid shows about highschool, teenage drug addicts, teenage pregnancy, stupid shows about getting "natty", etc.

This whole bullying thing is being blown out of proportion. Bullying has and will always exist. Is it wrong? Sure. But bullying is part of human nature and adults engage in forms of bullying as well let alone kids.

For god's sakes we live in America. America is the biggest bully in the world by far. We ain't complaining.

That doesn't mean we have to accept it as our reality. Anything to hinder behavior that causes someone to kill themselves is not a waste of time. If you mean to suggest people should just stop worrying about bullying and let it happen, the problem will grow.

She could've avoided the whole situation if she didn't flash herself on the internet.
