This is so sad!
Jadin Bell was, by all accounts, a wonderful and bright young man. But after a storm of ceaseless homophobic bullying, he just… gave up.
After being found hanging at the schoolyard, the 15-year-old was taken to the hospital and put on life support — unfortunately not in time.
Check out the video (above) for the whole story and to meet the Oregon teen through the words of his family and friends.
We just don't know what kind of tragedy it will take to make the bullies of the world stop!
How many more lives have to end prematurely before these jerks realize how much their actions can hurt?!
Missouri's St. Clair High School is in mourning.
It began with the suicide of junior Jordan Halmich. It was tragic, but the community tried to heal.
But then just a month later, Donna Cooley hanged herself. No one knew what to do.
Then on Monday, Destiny Pearson
Three teens from the same high school- three tragic endings. So what could have caused these young people to throw away all their potential?
We were heartbroken to hear about the suicide of Amanda Todd, a teen who posted a video telling the story of her online sexual harassment and bullying.
And we aren't the only ones!
Sergeant Peter Thiessen of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police says the Mounties have been inundated with complaints of similar harassment. He says:
"We have received many calls directly from young women and teenagers from across Canada and the U.S. who were upset about what they were seeing.
They are upset about the Amanda Todd story and continued inappropriate postings and were all quite traumatized by that. They were looking for a way to help and to see if we are able to make it stop. They were very difficult discussions to have."
They are investigating the claims Amanda made on the video, but the law is still unclear about the nature of crimes such as online harassment.
Amanda's death and the subsequent outcry against the behavior that led to it are creating a burning debate about the law in Canadian Parliament.
We hope they can figure something out. The harmful acts described in the video cannot be allowed to continue.
And we don't want to lose any more Amanda Todds.
Teresa Giudice is known to get in a little drama on her reality television show, but the person who is catching the most flak from her actions isn't herself but actually her daughter.
According to some in the know - eleven-year-old Gia has been repeatedly bullied by her classmates for her mother's actions on the show, etc.
Here's what the source said:
"Teresa doesn't care about anything but the fame. The show has been greatly effecting her daughter Gia at school. She's being teased by the other kids and Teresa even had to go to the school to meet with teachers about it."
But Teresa isn't totally innocent, though.
