She wasn't a bad person.
She committed no serious crime.
Her apparent "wrong doing", in this scenario, was an incident which she thought she was dealing with in private. Then, of which, was exploited and the aftermath saw her demise. It is only in her death that the people who saw that demise are now full of sorrow. I hope they feel ashamed that they couldn't extract themselves from the "in" crowd. And this is what hurts me most.
Why didn't anyone reach out to her? WHY?
We live in a hateful world where the media spurn gossip and write articles about weight and appearance. Kids who read that believe it to be true and in turn it leads to anxiety of not coming up to standard. Even worse, they turn to bulimia/anorexia. The feeling of not fitting in makes them feel left out and alone, And other kids pick up and that and challenge their weakness. The taunting snowballs from there which then leads onto bullying. And the thing is, I don't think most kids realise what they are doing until its too late.
We stupidly live in a world where hideous comments on social networking are not monitored or acted upon. A world where kids give in to peer pressure and ride on the back of others kids misery and hurt - its no wonder the world is full of negativity and pain.
If only the media would not offer opinions and sway peoples decisions.
And social networking was in support of positive actions as opposed to fighting or hating them.
And kids had the free will, without retribution, to lead and walk away instead of following like sheep.
This quote sums up my feeling on suicide:
"Suicide isn’t cowardly.
I’ll tell you what’s cowardly:
treating people so badly that they want to end their lives"RIP Amanda x
