Bullying awareness: Your story
After losing my one and only friend on New Year's Eve I went off the deep end. I have been bullied my entire life and she was the only one who stood by me. After her death I became suicidal, the hateful messages only getting worse. But, I met someone, who, as dramatic as it sounds, saved my life. He stood up for me and supported me. I'm not perfect yet but I'm getting there. I don't think bullies get the proper punishments. They RUIN someone's life. And if that person happens to kill themselves, the bullies should be faced with manslaughter. Suicide seems like the easy way out, and in a way it is, but something I've come to realize is that even if you don't realize it, someone, at least ONE person, will be devastated by your death.
