When Will IT End? 10 Year Old Commits Suicide...

I didn't plan on blogging today because there wasn't much to say until 10 minutes ago when a tweet caught my attention.


I had to read it a few times before clicking the link to the blog.

My heart is broken. I'm almost speechless. Almost. I cannot believe that this child was only alive for TEN years and subjected to so much hatred and pain. What in the world are these children who bullied her learning? And where are they learning it from?

Now I'm no idiot. I'm fully aware that bullying will probably never stop and maybe in the past it wasn't such a "big deal." The fact is, however, bullying has become an epidemic and it IS a big deal, so we need to step up and DO SOMETHING about it. As a society, as parents, as friends, as partners we are responsible for the world we all live in, whether you want to believe it or not. This isn't something to laugh at or hide from. It's real and it's happening. It's probably happening to someone you know.

I can't. I can't even say anything more right now. Please get help if you need it - get informed at HoldingofWrist.com!

  1. This is absolutely saddening, to say the very least. I have a 5 year old daughter, and it worries me to pieces to know that in a few short years, she will be exposed to the cruelty of other children.

  2. It's very sad & it makes me worried about when I have children. I know I won't be able to protect them from it all.

  3. This is so sad. I can't believe this cruelty takes everyday. What happened to happy childhoods where kids had nothing much to worry about except for homework and a few pimples... There is so much more for these kids in the days ahead, it's too bad they can't see through the pain to realize that... It's just so sad.
