Bullied To Death: Inspired by a true story
This story is inspired by a girl who was bullied because she was 'bigger' than everyone else at her school. One day, some girls at her school thought it would be hilarious to take a picture when she was changing in gym class.They posted this on Facebook...That night she received over 1'000 messages on Facebook, Twitter and email of people LAUGHING at her.This girl couldn't stand the thought of facing everyone at school and she committed suicide.That isn't right and this story is dedicated to her
The time is now
At my school lately there has been a lot of bullying going on...My principle then talked to us about it and he told us about this girl. She's older than me, in grade 11, and I couldn't believe that someone who lives about an hour away from me could have something so horrible, mean, nasty and down right wrong happen to her. I have heard of kids who have been bullied to death but it didn't feel like it fit into my world. That was until I heard about this girls story. I felt so much empathy for this girl that I want to write a story dedicated to her and anyone else who had or is being bullied. I hope that this makes at least one person want to take an action to stop bullying.
That was back when I was in grade 8. I'm now a sophomore student in high school. Bullying is a never ending story for so many kids and it's one of the reasons I wanted to write this story. I get that some of you have been saying that I'm 'just putting words in a girl's mouth' with this story, but that's not true.
I was bullied too. Not as bad as others, but I was still bullied. I developed a lot quicker than most of my female classmates and I was teased. I've had two knee surgeries and people teased me because of that.
The point is that I may not have it even half as bad as others, but I still know the pain. I've seen my friends feel that exact same pain. It doesn't get any easier. And that is why I'm writing this.
We have the power to change the world, and we do that, every time we take a stand against the person or people who bullied us. It's time for a change and that time is now.
