When I was in middle school, I worked tirelessly to raise awareness and to help fight bullying. I spoke at every school in the area. I thought I made an impact.

My best friend's brother committed suicide today. It was a shock to pretty much everyone.

NOW there's a new voice to eradicate bullying. It shouldn't take the death of someone for people to realize what's going on.

Hi aceodspades. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's brother. That is tragic.
Much more needs to be done about bullying.
I was a victim of bullying myself, and I know the damage it causes to one's self esteem.
There needs to be more school policies, and laws against bullying.

It really bugs me that everyone knows what's going on, but it always needs a tragedy before people take action. Bullying is becoming more and more dangerous, especially among children. It's great that you spoke up against it, schools need more people like that.
I'm so sorry about your friend's brother. Bullies are indirect murderers, I don't understand why the law is so lenient with them.

I am so sorry what happened to your best friend's brother, i really hopefully with your encouragement to raise awareness about the bullying is apparent become worse to made them into realization that nobody has deserve ill treatment.

This bullying can be dissipate if everyone's agreeing to help each others out, respect and stop be enticed to do something awfulness.

Their families absolutely sadden who loose their children's such young ages.
No hobby no interest no ambition and no friends...why? Because my life and my very own purpose is destroyed and disgusting the way how to alter my own principle of life by creating vary calamities...intently to hurt me, blame me, accuse me, shame on me, betray on me and cheat on me and everything what i am seeking for happiness definitely return to nothing...
